    :) Boston Reefers Meetings are open to all Paid, non-paid and prospective members (family friendly environment) :)

    The next meeting of the Boston Reefers' Society will be on: Saturday, September 17th, 2016 noon to 4:00pm with Paul Baldassano.

    The location is: Peabody VFW 20 Stevens St. Peabody, MA 01960

    Paul Baldassano (Paul B)
    Topic – TBA

    This hobby has been a lifelong passion of Paul’s for over 60 years. Not many can say this, but Paul first started his reef tank in 1971. That first tank has gone through many changes and has grown much larger, but it is still running today! His reef has been a continuing experiment where he offers these beautiful creatures the best possible living conditions outside their natural habitat.

    Paul has spent his life searching for answers and it normally occupies much of his time even when he should be sleeping. One of these answers came in the form of the Majano Wand, which has helped many reefers overcome these pests.

    As a retired electrician, Paul keeps himself busy by writing aquarium articles, speaking at reef clubs, and working on his projects – many of which involve marine life in one form or another.

    Meeting schedule:

    **All topics and times subject to change at any time**

    Meeting schedule: Noon - 4pm
    12:00-12:30 Meet & Greet / Membership Registration
    12:30-1:00 Q&A if interest (Psst! Old school reefers, civic duty calls!)

    2:30-3:00 Food, raffle
    3:00-4:00 on Fragswap mayhem/socializing/meeting cleanup

    Just looked into it and you are correct on both. Such a sad thing to see. I guess reefing isn't popular in New England anymore. =\

    Sorry to go off topic. Anyways!!! Lots of great BRS MEMBERS! in that area that tend to have great stuff for sale. I'll see about trying to make it up that way depending on if I get my new car by then (long story... lol)

    Specialty pets shops were never a forgiving business to enter into. I am sure both will be back in time.
