I am new to this. Any clubs in or around upstate NY?
MD, VA, PA eastern WVA. Mdreefclub.com
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.
Thank you for posting!!!

Kingston NY and yourself?

Activities: monthly club meetings, frag swaps, vendor crawl, annual mamas meet, etc.
Thanks for posting! Lets keep these clubs coming
Any in nc?
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.
Hi I am also fairly new to the hobby, any clubs in Los Angeles?
