All,

Continuing Ibenu's thread, and picking up a number of members suggestions, I am using this thread to help organize group get togethers. Anyone else wanting to help out, feel free to volunteer.

OK, here we go:

If you would like to host a group get together at your place, please feel free to either post here or PM me with your availability. I can then either start a new thread for your event or we can use this thread as a central board for planning.

Host: When opening your house up please let any special circumstances be known, ei: no kids/kids allowed, bring your pets/don't bring them, if a BBQ what to bring, that sort of thing.

Guest: Remember that you will be entering someone else's house and show the respect they deserve. If you have something you want to add to the party ie: items for sale/trade or want to bring food, double check before you attend.

I think this can be a cool way to meet some more members of the forum personally. I know for myself that so far it is usually only when I am doing a sale/trade that I meet other members, with a few exceptions.

Awesome idea indeed. If its going to be on the weekend, then I will most likely be attending.

If I am indeed attending and there are a few members from New Westminster that dont have their own transport (car), then I can pick them and drop off at a common location in New Westminster (skytrain station?).

Hey I would be happy to have an open house . We have a dog ( a border collie who is super friendly and will want attention :) ) sorry but she doesn't get along with other dogs :eek:.
I have 2-180's stacked tanks, 60 gallon coffee table tank as well as a picture frame tank and a tall hex and a 125 planted tank.....and a couple of smaller ones.....all in a 635 sq.ft. apartment.
I live in south van near the knight street bridge.
I gotta add that its a 420 friendly place so please be forewarned..
I am open to having dogs and burgers if there is interest.I can maybe handle 15 people at one time .....unless you don't mind not being able to move.

Anyone wanna come visit :D

Looks like we have our first volunteer. Aquaman, do you have a day that would work best for you? That sounds like quite the collections of tanks for a smaller place.

Well that went well.....Lisa is now the owner of 160 lbs of black substate . Real good deal let me tell ya.
The new member we oicked it up from was a real nice guy. He is switching to salt water. I have never seen so much nice shiny new equipment in one spot. When done he will have an awsome tank.

I am here trying to tidy up a bit more, before people start showing up.....If your in the neck of the woods stop by and say hi.
