    Happyvalley is hosting a Meeting!
    Location: Apple Valley, MN
    Date: Saturday February 22nd
    Time: 4pm-????

    Is there anything in particular you're very interested in when it comes to reefing or something you'd like to learn more about?
    Low cost equipment!
    Everything branded for aquariums and reefs seems expensive, kind of like shopping for stuff for boats.
    800 dollars for LED lights makes little sense when I can buy pendant lights for warehouses via amazon for 80 dollars.


    Are bring corals for trading and/or selling allowed at your meeting?
    Perfect, sounds awesome!
    *post in classifieds and link into this thread if you like.


    Do you want a pm for address or do you want to post it here?
    13485 Diamond Path
    Apple Valley, MN 55124
    ***Careful with Google Maps, takes you to cul-de-sac behind out house.***
    ****We live right on diamond path****


    Is there a limit to attendee's?
    No, more the better.


    Is your meeting handicap accessible?
    Kind of.
    I bet we can all help and assist anyone who needs it around the back to the lower level where the primary tank is.


    Will you be providing any refreshments?
    Heck Yah!


    Are there any specific parking guidelines?
    No, plenty of room on our driveway.


    Do you have any pets? (this is for members with allergies)
    Yes 2 large happy and friendly dogs.


    Are children allowed?
    Yes


    Please provide a short description of your experience in the hobby and any tanks currently running.
    My primary tank is a 650 gallon reef tank.
    I also have a 100 gallon frag tank and several quarantine tanks.
    In total I have been in the hobby 25 years of on and off, with much of it being a very humbling expience.

    Meeting Giveaways
    This year the giveaways will be:

    1. One attendee per meeting will win a $50 Gift Card to a sponsor of their choice. Each person can only win once unless all attendees at a meeting have each won before.
    2. All hosts for the 2020 year will be placed into a drawing at the end of the year to win a $200 Gift Card to a sponsor of their choice.

    That's a beautiful tang! How's the personality? I've seen them a number of times diving out in the open water... seemed to always shadow us as we dove down or came back up after the dive.

    He’s quite tame. He can be hand fed and you can gently pet his back if your feeding him with your other hand.

    He’s also a total glutinous pig and will hog all of the food.

    He does say no to drugs and alcohol though.

    All you need to do is rsvp in the first post, we'd be glad to have you. I am not the host but that is how we operate here. No reason to be chicken, it is show up, look at a tank, chat with others about the hobby. Kinda like going to the local fish store except you're not buying anything.

    And most of us don't bite

    This meeting is also listed on Meetup.com. I know it my be annoying to update on multiple sites, but if someone is interested in attending that never has, it usually makes them feel better attending if there are multiple people confirmed.
