    eschulist is hosting a Meeting!

    Location: South Maplewood
    Date: September 12th
    Time: 6-8pm


    Do you want a pm for address or do you want to post it here?
    377 Highpoint Curve Maplewood MN 55119

    Is there a limit to attendee's?
    30 people? I guess just within reason. The small tank is in a fairly small room so space is limited. Other rooms and the deck will be usable to chat and hangout.

    Is your meeting handicap accessible?

    Single step to get into the house and the tank is downstairs

    Will you be providing any refreshments?

    Soda and snacks. BYOB if you want beer.

    Are there any specific parking guidelines?
    Street parking

    Do you have any pets? (this is for members with allergies)
    Pomeranian and Cat

    Are children allowed?
    Children are allowed if they supervised.

    Please provide a short description of your experience in the hobby and any tanks currently running.
    Been in the hobby for over 15 years. All of my tanks have been 20 gallons or less. My current tank is an equipment upgraded version of my original 12 gallon long tank that won tank of the month on Nano-Reef.com

    A little under a month away and by attending you get entered into a raffle for a 2016 Apex! For comparison I tried to answer over 25 trivia questions once a week for 6 months for a chance at $500, I missed one and was dropped into the $250 bracket. So by attending for 2 hours you could win something valued at $800. Sounds like a good deal to me... And you get to see a pretty sweet tank if I do say so myself. :D

    For those attending and coming from the west on I-94. Use the right lane when coming from St Paul. They are redoing a large section of the road and the traffic is split in half. Traffic on the left has no exits until you get to 494, traffic on the right can use the McKnight Exit to get to my house. Otherwise I recommend just coming from 694 or 494 and taking Valley Creek.

    Todays the day! Who else is coming?

    Another construction hurdle for those attending. Just yesterday they started a major sewer or road project 1/4 mile from my house. For those coming from St Paul on Lower Afton or McKnight, take Lower Afton towards Woodbury, and then take Londin going West.

    Thanks Everyone for coming. In hindesight I wish we did the around the room as there were a few people I've seen but haven't put faces to usernames / real names. Also it would have given me a chance to talk about my system more in depth for those that didn't know the back story or how some of the pieces and equipment were chosen and put together.

    After everyone left I also finally figured out a cool trick to get my system to restart quickly and quietly every time. Oh well, maybe a demo next time.

    The whole system looked great; tank, corals, fish, filtration system and the stand! ;)
