2015 Dallas sp. award winner announced!

Postby marks » Sun 18 Jan, 2015 9:08 pm

After much discussion and deliberation, the MASA committee has voted on the 2015 Dallas sp, Award nominees and reached a decision.

We thank all the nominees for their time and dedication to building on an idea and helping to drive the reefing hobby in Australia forward, without your contributions and the example you set, RTAW would certainly not be the resource it has grown to be.

We would also like to thank every member of the forums that has taken the time to reach out and help, fostered or guided fellow reefers on their path, we are the community you make.

Sadly, we cannot award everyone for their efforts, we hope that each nominee takes pride in knowing that their nomination is recognition by the Australian reefing community of their efforts and contribution. Kevin, Dallas, and Al, we all take off our hats to you.

With great pride, honour and respect, and on behalf of RTAW and MASA, the MASA Committee announce the winner of the Dallas sp. Award for 2015 is....
