Congrats, Adam and Jeff, on a job well done. Sucks that someone had to ruin the announcement and steal BRK's thunder with an unauthorized leak of the info.

Yep! Adam @TheGrimmReefer and Jeff @Jawalker85 have been the two primarily responsible for everything. Others have come and gone throughout the lengthy process while these two have stuck with it for the past two YEARS. In recent weeks, Eric @ericd000 has also found himself working tirelessly on the MACNA website. It is due to be brought online Monday morning when the official press release goes out to the masses. 

 

Thanks guys!

 

By the way, what does everyone think of the logo?

That logo is awesome! I gotta start saving now, especially with two reefing events like Fragniappe & MACNA in the same year. 2017 can't get here soon enough!

If some of y'all have never been to one of these before, you are in for a treat.  This conference is on a whole other level compared to other events.  Any reef hobbyist in the area that doesn't make this one is really missing out.

I have only been to one in Atlanta but it was a heck of a lot of fun.  You will not be disappointed if you are really enthused about this hobby.  I am looking to find a way to be able to attend.
