    Hi guys

    As many of you know I was offline for some time and since I have been away, our meetings have stopped all together. I have received numerous enquiries as to when is the next meeting...

    First and foremost, what we Durban reefers need to do in order for the club to take off once again, is to form a little organizing committee. I honestly dont have the time like I used to, and would really appreciate it if members come forward and assist with this for the good of the hobby. I will gladly assist where I can.

    For now I suggest we keep it simple and start off with social meetings, tank tours, braais, frag swop, day at the beach etc..and as the club and ideas grows, we can look at making things a little more formal.

    Any volunteers, suggestions, ideas?

    Thank you NO3. We need to look at having at least one social every month. Since it is still the beginning of the month, we can try and have a meet sometime this month.
    Perhaps a collection day at one of our local beaches since it is the best time of the year to go around looking for those juvenile specimens?

    Come on guys...Who else is in? This is a chance where we can all get to meet each other, discuss reefing and have some fun collecting specimens.

    Please remember to get yourselves a Marine Fish collecting permit from your local post office.
