Sooo, the official vote was in favor of joining the NEC (I'll work out the application paperwork ASAP). No decision on our representative as of yet. Any volunteers?
Meeting Schedule for the winter season is as follows: November 19
@ 2pm - Thanksgiving fish-food-making meet. This year we may try making shrimp food if I can find a recipe
No meeting in Decemer due to Xmas January 21
@ 2pm - Emersed plant workshop. We had one of these last winter, but we have a lot of new members since then. February 18
@ ? - Some kind of event. Perhaps we can organize an auction of some sort to raise some club funds. March 17
@ 2pm - field trip! We'll be carpooling to shop either at a fish store in NYC or maybe at Frank's Aquarium on Long Is. March 23-25
- NEC annual convention in Cromwell, CT. We've been invited to set up a planted tank display at the show. Maybe, since we'll hopefully be a member club by then, we can even do a planted tank talk or scaping workshop or something. April 21
@ 2pm - not sure what we're doing yet.
Presentation on design principles was well-received. Luke took a picture of us viewing it in my messy basement :P Overall conclusion was that I should get a projector and put a pull-down screen over the AquaVision, since my laptop is too small to squint at. I'll put it on my list for when I'm independently wealthy
The giant attack prawn also continues to fascinate everyone. Next project: build a treadmill for it.
