Default Yes, I can host a meeting!

We have a perennial problem of finding places to hold meetings. This is the place to volunteer!

Our most popular meetings are in members' homes. Everybody likes to look at other people's tanks, trade plants, and socialize. Our meetings are very informal, if you could host one it would be great.

You don't need to give a presentation, and you don't need to provide snacks. We just need a place to gather, talk, and trade plants. The plant trading area can get a little messy, so fine carpets or antique tables are not a good idea.

If your home isn't suitable, maybe you have access to some other meeting place--a community room in your apartment complex, a recreation room at your school or church, or your garage. Yes, we've had really good meetings in garages.

So please volunteer. Thanks!

I'd be happy to host a meeting if people are willing to make the trek up to Allen. I don't have a fish room or anything, just a 150g, a 55g and a 37g.

Thank you! Let me check with the executive committee, and will get back with you by PM about possible dates.

Hey guys!

I've been talking to Steve about scaping him a 10gallon tank. He said that he couldn't find a place, but Dejlig wouldn't mind hosting. If this is the case, Dejlig would you mind letting me scape this 10gallon for Steve at your home?

Also, I need to date. I'm starting a new job, and I will be working on Sundays. I have to let them know that this was already an arranged event. Just need the date.

Also, on the scape I will need some plants to scape with.

Crypts
Moss
Ferns
anubias
Val
tiger lotus

I will be bringing some plants, but I just want to make sure I have enough to work with. It's going to be an open style tank mostly. Steve said he has some nice guppies and endlers. One or the other will be used to give a splash of color.

I'm excited, as is Steve, to do this scape for him.

Please let me know on the date.

We have an embarasment of riches!

Dejlig just confirmed that he will host the July meeting. I am not sure about the logistics of transporting a fully scaped 10 gallon from Allen to south of Fort Worth where Steve lives. It might be best to do the demo at Steve's house at a future meeting, if he is willing to host.

Of course, Steve and JJ may not want to wait that long, which is perfectly understandable. And Steve may be fully prepared to move the tank from Allen to his house.

I absolutely do not want to discourage enthusiasm, but it may not be feasible to do all of this at the July meeting. Let's try to separate the activities in two different meetings.

Well since it's only a 10 gallon, and if Dejlig doesn't mind, we can fill it so everyone can see the finished product. Then just drain it off for transport. Very easy!

But this all must be confirmed within the next few days. I have to let my new job know.

I have no problem transporting the tank back to the SE Ft Worth area. I could keep everything damp, leave a little water in the tank and put clear plastic over it. I'll take pictures just in case something moves. I have a fast car but drive slower a lost slower then it can do.

I don't mind you scapping the 10g over here, but I do have a 150g planted discus tank that could use some scapping should you desire to take that on. Not sure how comfortable you are with warm water plants though.

I'm not sure what the committee has planned yet, we may not have time to rescape a tank this time. I'm anxious to hear what they have planned...

Thanks,
Steve

I'm comfortable with warm water plants, and scaping a tank. me and dejig could always scape his 150 and do a talk on how to set up a planted discus tank.

I hope this will not offend anyone, but someone has to make a decision.

We will work on Dejlig's 150 gallon discus tank, and save stmarshall's 10 gallon for another meeting if he and JJ want to wait. Joey already offered to do a presentation on planted discus tanks, so this would be a great fit.

Joey or anyone, can you give us a list of plants that tolerate high temperatures? That way we can bring some to the meeting.

Thanks to everyone, and please understand that we are trying to organize this in the way that makes the best use of time and place.
