Default CAPE Meeting Schedule for WINTER/SPRING 2012

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.

An auction would benefit the club in that a.) we all exchange aquarium plants and get good deals on cool planty things. b). we raise a little money which we can then put toward things like buying members passes to the NEC convention in March, or contributing to the gas of whoever's driving on our field trip meetings, etc.

I should be home for the January meeting. I'll try make it.

Will it be at your place?

Also, club funds can be used for materials that are used in demos, or for food items used in the occasional make-your-own frozen food meeting.

Just throwing out this idea... For February, let's add a workshop on making liquid ferts (knock off Seachem, Pfertz, Brightwell Aquatics etc)... We learn how to DIY and at the same time we raise some funds for the club by charging only an X amount of $ for a 500ml liquid ferts (macro and/or micro)...

That's a great idea. I'm sure all of us together have so many dry ferts we could make a lifetime supply... These would also be great things to put in an auction. We could do "poor man's pfertz" and sell the bottles.

That is a good idea! I wonder if we could also get some gluteraldehyde and make some DIY excel?
