    It has come to my attention that us PE guys and gals do not have our own reef club? Am I missing it, has it already been tried?

    If not, put your comments down below if you would be interested in forming a PE reef club, and that includes FOWLR owners. I was thinking just a basic club with a meeting once a month. Maybe a braai, frag trading, some interesting information and findings on behalf of the members with regards to coral growth, coloration etc as well as temperament with certain fish, to help out fellow fish only tank keepers to get just the right fish for their tanks.

    How does this sound? Interested, drop a comment down below, the more members and interest, the more we can do :1:

    I know there is some form of a club but I don't think it is ''running''.

    The whole story is that we had the first club in africa (started by my old man and some other collectors in the early 70's) on who's committee I served for years. At one stage we had 350 piad-up families as members (most where mom, dad and kids dived and collected). The club suspended operations in the mid 2000's, though I am it''s custodian and have all the historic paperwork, mailing lists and a complete collection of all magazines (monthly for 30 years).

    We considered re-forming in 2010, and organised a meeting of the more active SARK members - but decided that it was un-necessary to go all "formal", since we are all buds anyway. I still organise week-end-ly public collecting trips during season, and have an open-house policy to all new and experienced collectors (organised free tanks and equipment for 10 noob PE collectors last season.).
