    BAYMAC is a show with a great ratio of new products and frags. It also really packs a punch with great speakers to boot. Last year I really enjoyed Sanjay's LED overview and I look forward to going this weekend. If there is the smallest chance you can get out to this one, make it happen! You won't regret it.

    I wish you could go as well Greg :) I'll settle for an email response though :lol: Of course I'll get to catch up with you at RAP.

    There have been a few changes. Macro Rocks and Fins and Critters both had to pull out at last second due to emergencies. Taking their place is Ocean Nutrition, SF Bay Brands, AquaMedic USA and Robin B (Fingerwinkles online) selling is CB clownfish.

    The raffle and door prize page will be updated shortly. We have TONS of items to list tonight, it'll hours of typing for me tonight :D

    Tell her the hot dog dude isn't coming and it sounds like the tri-tip dude is coming instead so she can have some Q and you can get your reef on :D
