    If you are attending MACNA, a new Referral Contest starts now and runs through August 21, 2012. The idea is to get your friends and club members to attend MACNA this fall with you. For every person you refer that buys a pass, you get one point. If you get the most points, you get a Mp40w ES pump. If you get 50 people, you'll get TWO Vortechs.

    Anyone that gets at least one person to register will be entered to win an Mp10w ES. Everyone gets a chance.

    Nearly two years ago, I wrote an article about why we as hobbyists should support our local fish stores, even if it costs us more for those items. It had been weighing on my mind for quite a while, and I'd actually sat on the write up for several years. I'm wasn't alone in this thinking, as most of the feedback I received was positive.

    Roughly three years ago, a friend of mine in our club suggested that we mob a store with business. It took time for his spark of an idea to gain traction, and finally last weekend we saw its fruition. Cameron felt strongly that our wallets should show tangible proof that we appreciate our local fish stores, and the idea was for a bunch of people ...

    The Marine Aquarium Society of Colorado prides itself on introducing new ideas, or reinventing ideas to try and better our club and our hobby at large. We pride ourselves on better educating our members to help properly care for the animals that we house. We typically do this through home meetings, meetings at local fish stores, and by bringing in experts to give seminars to our club members.

    One great example of how we keep science in the forefront is our annual MASC Science Fair Competition. In the beginning the board of directors of MASC just wanted to do something fun ...

    Lately Iíve been asked a lot about my underwater videos and what gear I use. There isnít really an easy answer for this so I figured more people in this hobby would benefit from me documenting the answer for future reference. I have a GoPro Hero 2 camera and I love it. It is a great camera that is relatively inexpensive for what it does. Because of this, I am not afraid to take it everywhere and put it in conditions that could be considered precarious. For example, over the side of a speed boat in Thailand to film the wake and the approaching islands; the GoPro goes everywhere. Here is the website for all the specs.

    Jean-Michel Cousteau
    brought to you by Seachem

    With DFWMAS hosting this yearís MACNA (the Marine Aquarium Conference of North America), we have the unique opportunity to make it memorable. Each year, the host club tries to raise the bar, and we are doing that this September.

    Saturday night during the gala dinner, the keynote speaker educates & entertains (edu-tains?) the audience for about an hour. Over the years, divers, photographers, aqua-culturers, film-makers and authors have all spoken. What could top those previous experiences? Who was uniquely qualified? We wanted a big name, someone epic, and ...
