    Hello Reefers.
    My name is David and I just signed up on this thread and am thrilled there is an active Marine hobby group in central Arkansas.
    I hope to get involved as a fellow reefer.
    My next venture:
    >75 gallon semi-predator tank
    >custom 6 ft white cabinet stand and canopy

    As a manager at Petco.conway, I am trying to network with our Marine community to let all know we are a Salt water fish and supplies store.
    I look forward to attending monthly meetings and becoming a member soon.

    Thank you. I get to see non aggressive fish everyday at work. So, I'd like to have something different at home.
    What are the annual member dues and how do I get Petco.conway involved as a sponsor for your club please.

    I think a $200 donation will year get you a year of sponsorship. The annual dues are $50 but you could save 10 if you plan on being at frag fest. $75 for the event and membership. $35 just for event.

    Very good. Saturdays are our biggest day at petco so I will need to schedule it in for the May meeting. I assume they are usually saturday AM meetings? Also, Does a 1st time visitor receive complementary admission to decide on a year membership? Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure your welcome to come, just don't get the coral every month without membership. I think may is a road trip meeting.

    Hiya and welcome!

    Sorry you won't be able to make Frag Fest this weekend. It's a pretty good event. Next month most of the board will be going to Coral's for Charity in Oklahoma. Since we can't have an official meeting without 4 board members, it's being canceled. However, if someone wants to hold a get together for those of us not going, that may be an option. Something we'll need to discuss Saturday.

    Good news- Attendance to our meetings is free year round regardless of what meeting it is. Most meetings are held on the 3rd Saturday of the month at 1030.
    Bad news, only paid members get a frag of our monthly coral.
    Really bad news- Next month a bunch of us are going to Corals for Charity.

    Welcome! I wish our Petco (Benton) had a better saltwater setup. Every time I go in the fish all look sad and half eaten/dying and what little coral they offer is just brown. Or the tanks are empty. I wish they had someone that cared as much! I'll have to come visit your store next time I'm in Conway!
