Last night I went to a meeting of the Orlando Reef Caretakers Association (ORCA). The meeting was held at a friends home and the place was packed. ORCA is a club for people who raise corals in reef tanks. I have had a reef tank for the past 5 or so years. I bought 6 coral frags to the meeting to be auctioned off. Last night they had over 270 frags to auction off. I got to the meeting at 6:30 pm and the auction was still going strong when I left at 12:30 am. John is in the middle of the sketch holding up a plastic bag containing a frag. He is holding a microphone so everyone inside and outside the house can hear. Most folks are sitting outside in a screened in pool area and the rest are jammed into the living room and kitchen. A fake palm tree is in the corner of the room. Each purchase is logged into a laptop.
