Default SWOAPE comes to Virginia?

The next GWAPA meeting we'll be December 3rd at Ghazanfar's home in Virginia. I realize it's a hike, but Matt had mentioned possibly coming down sometime for one of our meetings. A couple others may come down from NJ too so we thought this would be a good weekend to invite you.

For those of you who don't know, Ghazanfar has a 215 gallon tank built into the wall in his finished basement that is a thing of beauty to behold. I hope you guys can come down. If not then, perhaps another time.

-Aaron

Is this a road trip calling?

If there is enough interest we could definately make a trip to the Northern Virginia area! I'm always up for a visit. For those who might like to give it some more thought, here is a link to GWAPA's site:
http://www.gwapa.org/index.html

The events page has some directions and there is a forum also but most of it is for members. There is also a gallery page. Nice site for Erik to check out

This is about an 8 hour trip each way so we would need to leave pretty early (3am or so) to get there in time for the meeting. We would probably need to look into some accomodations for one of the nights also. I'm not much into driving 16 hours in a single day! What is everyone's thoughts on the accomodations?

If we decide to make the trip, we could more than likely bring along some Soilmaster Select Gray. We can check into the availability of some if there is interest in more than we have.

I could very feasably ask if we could push the time back a bit so you wouldn't have to get up at 3:00 am . Just keep me updated on interest and we'll work everything out from there.

Sounds good Aaron! I imagine most of the responses will be right here in the forum so we should both be able to keep an eye on it

Thanks for the offer also!

So how many of us are interested in a road trip to the DC, Northern Virginia, Baltimore area?

We could always make a side trip to Aquarium Center and some of the other stores in the area. They put our stores to shame, even the ones in the Cinci area! I think it's worth the trip just to go to Aquarium Center even though it has gone downhill according to the locals.

Thumbs up

Count me interested! And yeah, 16 hours of travel in one day is too much... definitely crash space is needed.
