Hello Reef Checkers,
Congratulations on a super successful year of surveys in northern and central CA! We had our most successful year yet with more sites and surveys then any other year! This is all thanks to your dedication and hard work. Please allow us to thank you for your enormous efforts at a party at the Monterey Bay Aquarium on Saturday Jan 12 at 12pm. We will have food, lots of prizes, a bit of info on what we accomplished this year, the great company of your fellow Reef Checkers, and the highly coveted golden slate award! I wonder which Reef Checker extraordinaire will win this year!
We will meet at the members' entrance at 12noon and will walk up together to the former OVCR, now called the Bing conference room. Of course if you are an MBA member and want to meet us in the room that will work as well.
You are welcome to bring friends and family and you all can enjoy the aquarium afterward until close. Please RSVP for you and everyone you are bringing. If one or more of you need to cancel please make sure to do so ahead of time. This will help us to not overbuy food which has happened in the past.
I would organize a dive (or 2) in the morning beforehand but I have an injury and can't dive for a couple of months. Some of the best diving conditions we have in CA are found during the winter in between storms. Make use of the morning in Monterey and dive dive dive! Use this forum thread to organize.
Hope to see you soon!
