Hey Penny, the meeting went very well! Sorry about not replying before, I was busy with work and I forgot to reply. I think what I'll do is post some pictures of the meeting here later on (with people's permission).
We had a total of four people show up to the first meeting. Drift wood and plants were traded. We talked about growing plants in different methods (soil, EI, etc...), how to coax apistos into breeding, emersed culture, auto-water change systems. Some people stayed until midnight, others left at 10 pm. We also discussed how to get more people to come.
One idea was to make a website for our group, another was to post adds on a website called get together. I talked with a pet shop owner in Hartford and got him to agree to give our group discounts on all purchases from his store (also to post our group's fliers all over the fish section in his shop). I plan to talk to a few more pet shop owners in the area. With any luck we'll be getting tons of members and discounts from online and from local pet shops.
Did I forget anything? Feel free to chime in anyone who came!
