BBQ Saturday, Tank Tour Map, Details

The BBQ is upon us! A few last minute updates we want everyone to be sure we don’t forget.

#1 – Our BBQ is also a potluck, and BYOC (Bring your own chair!) – don’t forget to let us know what you are bringing, and don’t forget your chair or you will be sitting on the lawn!

Raffles will start at 5PM; the tank tour will end at our BBQ site sometime between 3 and 4PM; and the BBQ officially starts around 4PM!

You can mention what Potluck item you are bringing here:

#2 – Our BBQ is also a Frag and Equipment swap! Bring your frags, old equipment, etc. – there will be lots to trade, and also lots to buy. Most people prefer cash, and we are at Randy’s house, pretty sure he hasn’t installed an ATM yet.

#3 – The TANK TOUR OF AWESOMENESS starts at 10AM at Matt Hellstrom’s house. Here is the map, if you are planning to attend be sure to flag yourself as “going” on the event on Facebook so we don’t depart without you.

Next Meeting, Saturday October 18th at Randy’s

Meeting time! Yes!! We’ve had a nice summer off (plus the BBQ), but its time to head back in from the lake and start talking about fragging!

Join us at Randy’s house (randythereefer) at noon for a tank discussion, and a quick demo on soft coral propagation. Randy has a great 180 gallon mixed reef, a seahorse tank, and probably many other tanks he would prefer we don’t ask him to admit to at this point (the salt is strong with this one!).

New Forums and Old Forums

Well – in order to move us further into the 21st Century we had to update our forums… and that means we now have 2 forum areas!! New Forums is our Tapatalk friendly area, and will be where we want to start having our conversations going forward, but we still have our Old Forums posted so you can access all your old threads, comment, and have conversations there.

Of course, we will be having content in both areas for a while, so be sure to check both the Old Forums and the New Forums for new posts and updates while we all learn the new system!

Post BBQ Roundup

Thanks to everyone who made it to our BBQ, and our sponsors! Be sure to thank our sponsors the next time you are buying or talking to them, and remind them that their sponsorship of our club matters.

 

Family Fun!
