    Volunteer to host a meeting!

    The forum is a good place to stay informed, share ideas, ask questions and get answers from fellow Reefers but nothing can compare to meeting others in the hobby in person.
    Meetings allow users to discuss various topics and get to know each other better.
    A meeting is a great place for beginners and experts in the hobby to get together and share the reefing experience, TCMAS appreciates you hosting a meeting in your home and sharing with your fellow reefers.

    Lots of spots open. Just a reminder, meetings have to be posted 30 days prior to the meeting date. So the deadline is approaching quickly if you want to host in January.

    I will talk to the boss. Maybe if I don't have a tank crash after my January vacation, I can host a meeting.

    Just checking, since nothing is listed for February but I don't see another post stating that Ted had to back out.
    Did this post get missed? or is that not happening?
