    Is there a limit to attendee's?

    No Limit

    Is your meeting handicap accessible?

    Not handicap accessible ( tank in the basement).

    Will you be providing any refreshments?

    Food and drink provided (BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, potato salad, corn bread, etc).

    Are there any specific parking guidelines?

    Street is OK, just don't block the neighbor's driveways.

    Do you have any pets? (this is for members with allergies)
    Have two border collies...

    Kids are fine (just keep them safe, house isn't kid proof).

    Please provide a short description of your experience in the hobby and any tanks currently running.
    I've been doing saltwater aquariums for about 8 years now, mostly nanos in the 10-20g range.
    Current setup is a 220 SPS now.
    Prior to salt water I kept Minnesota native species in freshwater tanks, rock bass, walleye and bluegills.

    Hey folks -

    I had to change the time on this event from 4pm to starting at 11am. My wife's friend is getting married on a short notice in the evening - so plan on having lunch instead of dinner. :)

    I"m sure glad I saw the time change. We plan to be there but have tentative plans to go camping. We'll be there for sure if we are in town.

    If anyone would like a non-pork or vegetarian option, let me know and I'll have it ready for you.

    Agreed. Your tank is looking real nice. I didn’t see any nasty algae...

    The pork was wonderful as always.

    Thank you,
