Boston Reefers Meetings are open to all Paid, non-paid and prospective members-(family friendly environment)
Hello BRS members, it's that time of year again! That's right, its auction time, and the time of year for us to pester you for donations.
I have sent/will send out some PM's directly to members that use our forum to sell their extra corals and livestock, and also to those members that have been generous enough to donate to the club in past auctions, but I figured I'd put out this general request here as well.
We have many exciting events planned for the club for this year as you can see from the calendar, but as with most things this requires having the funds available to make these activities possible. We are excited to be bringing new speakers in, a possible family day, junkyard wars, cook-outs and of course running the forums. This is where you guys come in, albeit from donations or spending your hard earned cash in a fun bidding war over some fabulous items for your tank!! SO DO NOT FORGET TO BRING YOUR COOLERS!

(offer ends 3/27/2014)
It's time to dig deep into your frag collection and find the unusual stuff that will generate a lot of interest at auction. Corals, fish, or invertebrates will all be accepted, but please make sure what you donate is something that there will be a market for. Large and/or non-reef-safe fish and some types of invertebrates might not sell well.
New or used reef equipment will be accepted. We do limit this to hobby related equipment since we are a reef club after all. If possible please try to clean up the equipment to make it presentable, and make sure you supply accurate information about the equipment (ie. needs new pump, runs fine, tank leaks but...).
We have an auction forum set up here that includes photographs and descriptions of each item that will be at auction. Do keep in mind that many donations are also received day of the auction so mark your calendars to be there. Saturday April 5th, 2014
Please send your donation info and photos (photos not required but VERY helpful!) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include in the email...
Your Full Name
Item donated including the name of the item and how many heads/polyps
Photo of the item (again, not required, but HUGE bonus, you know we all love pictures!!)
Deadline to donate: Thursday April 3rd as we would like to have some kind of auction program generated in advance.
Thanks to all in advance! This auction is one of the most important events for the club and is sure to be a great time as always. Also, if you are unable to attend the meeting but would still like to donate we will have some volunteers that will be able to pick up donations as well. If you need your donation picked-up please let us know when submitting your donation.
What are you still doing reading...time to start fragging!!
