This has nothing to do with your post, but thank you for the welcome message, @revhtree! I was having trouble navigating the site but I got it now. What a glorious welcoming committee!

Thank you for posting! Lets try to get at least one club for each state! Remember, if there is no club in your state you could always start one yourself!

Local club is Southwest Florida Marine Aquarium Society, located in Ft. Myers, Florida, with members from Naples to Port Charlotte and beyond. Website to club is http://www.swfmas.com/. I believe it was started about 8 years ago and has a little over 1,500 members. They have a monthly event ranging from a simple club meeting, frag swaps, weekend trips, to a full reef conference with national speakers. Great group of aquarists who love the hobby.

Hello everyone!
My name is Ryan - I am a member of MARS "Madison Area Reef Society"
We are located in Madison, WI.
Here is a link to our forum: Madison Area Reef Society
The club has over 2200 users I believe which includes local hobbyists, area vendors, and local businesses. It is an active club with a lot of great members who are more than willing to help out on the forums or even come to houses and help troubleshoot. The buy/sell forum always has some good stuff on there including equipment and livestock. The mods run the site well and the conversations are clean and helpful. The annual frag swap has a great turn out each year and gets some great prizes donated by local businesses as well as some big names. If you are from the Madison or surrounding area consider signing up and participating in our club activities!
The last time I had reef tanks I lived in Madison. I now live in Florida and would think the stores and availability would be so much better down here. Madison has a ton to offer for the reef tank enthusiast. I wish I knew that had existed back in the day, when I was really into it hard with 120/40/20 and 2 14 reef tanks the internet forum thing and google really wasn't in existence like now.

Not a dumb question, sometimes threads just get buried really quickly and do not get noticed. I'll go read your thread right now :D Oh and welcome to the community
