The fourth annual Bay Area Marine Aquarium Conference, otherwise known as BAYMAC, takes place this Saturday, May 14th at Chabot College in Hayward, California. The single day event, which is free to the public, opens its doors at 11am and will be full of great coral vendors, aquarium equipment wholesaler and manufacturers, a few guest speakers, and several California reef clubs. The guest speaker list includes Justin Credabel, Tony Vargas, and Simon Garratt, each of which has a one hour time slot to share their knowledge of the hobby with hundreds of listeners. Toward the end of the day, a giant raffle will take place, and we all know how those raffles get. Hundreds of people glaring at their raffle tickets and hoping to get that sweet piece of equipment they’ve been drooling over all day. I’m never lucky enough to wind anything in raffles, but each person has their own strategy.
