PostSubject: TBRC 2012 Reef Conference   Fri May 04, 2012 10:52 am

The 2012 Tampa Bay Reef Conference is an event brought to you by The Tampa Bay Reef Club (TBRC).

The event is planned for Saturday, August 4th, 2012 at the Embassy Suites in Tampa.

The Conference is envisioned to be a full day of education and fun for all individuals interested in marine environments including marine fish, invertebrates, corals, reef keeping,coral reef preservation, coral and fish aquaculture and coral reefs around the world.

Come spend the day learning new and innovative ideas for your hobby. Have a full day of fun hearing from the well known national speakers and seeing the new vendor products and exhibits. Bring your family along for the day or they can enjoy Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, or MOSI and you can join up with them anytime after the conference.

The event's speakers are: Tony Vargas, Julian Sprung, Matt Wittenrich, and Butch Ringelspaugh. Our speakers are prominent, well known and respected within the national "reefing" community and in addition to the conferences informational and educational topics, there will also be a HUGE raffle at the end of the day.

The ticket for the conference INCLUDES full access to all of the exhibits, all four speakers, as well as a delicious lunch buffet. Not to mention all the camaraderie with your fellow reefers for the whole day!

The conference is open to all interested in attending. You do not need to be a club member to attend.

The pre-registration deadline is coming up quick (July 31st) so don't miss out!

However, if you miss pre-registration, you can still attend for $19.95 (it just won't include the buffet).

Got to meet Matt Wittenrich in person! excited He signed my copy of his fish breeding book that I have been reading this summer so devotedly. study He's my current "fishy" inspiration. Felt like a giddy little girl. love 2

Also got to talk one-on-one with Tony Vargas! Very Happy Pretty sweet! I bought a copy of Tony's reef aquarium book at the conference, and he signed it for me. mr. green
