    The next big member benefit!

    This year we have changed up the grow out contest but since we are not creative enough to come up with a new name we are letting it roll.
    We have some great corals at fantastic prices.
    The rules have changed so please read carefully.
    Every time you post your grow out pic you get $5 back.

    Orange Passion acro $75 ends up being $25.

    Watermelon Chalice $60 ends up being $10

    Now the rules:
    1. Must be a paying member.
    2. Must pick up corals from a trustee. All corals for each region will be sent to the trustees or arrange your own shipping or pick up.
    3. Every month you post a pic you will get $5 returned to you at the end of the contest (maximum $50). Post either here or on the GIRS Facebook page.
    4. Instead of prizes for most growth you will receive $5 for every post. So if you post 10 times you get $50 back and purchased an Orange passion for $25 and the Chalice for $10.
    5. No more than one coral from each category for each member.
    6. Contest will run September 2020 to August 2021.
    7. No replacements or reimbursement for corals that die, but you can still receive your $5 per month for posting either a pic of the dead coral, a reef related news article or a funny reef meme, just #growout2020
    8. First 15 people in each category to Pay Pal are in.

    PayPal address is
    treasurer@greateriowareefsociety.org

    Also remember, this is a members-only contest, so you must be a member to enter and win! Please send payment as "Friends & Family" if at all possible (no fees)

    Are there still open slots on either? Is there a trustee to pickup from in Cedar Falls/Waterloo area?

    Yes and yes. The chalice is at exotics and aquatics. And Hopefully your trustee will have the Acro soon.

    Everyone, We are working on plans for getting the frags to the Des Moines group. Right now, it looks like I might make a trip on Saturday to Iowa City to get them and return to Des Moines. Would the Des Moines/Ames area members be able to pick your frags up from my house on late Saturday afternoon?
