Default October meeting

I thought I would throw out a couple of options regarding the October meeting. The last Saturday of the month, which is our normal meeting day, is the GCAS Auction and it runs most of the day so...when and where do we want to hold the September meeting?

Here are some Pros and Cons from me for different meeting days:

Saturday, October 22nd
Very possible but I may have a neice's b-day party to go to. If this is the day we all decide on, I will either not be able to hold the meeting or will not go the the B-day party

Saturday, October 29th (GCAS Auction Day)
at a restaurant after the GCAS Auction
at someone's house in the Cinci area after the auction

Sunday, October 30th
Football is on all day!

Outside of football season I don't care what day the meeting is held. However, some folks, Damon, Joe Rings, and Sean, might be able to attend more meetings if we held them on Sunday. I know we are pretty "set in our ways" now but thought I would throw this one out there for everyone to think about since we are discussing the OCtober meeting.

I thought it was kinda nice sitting around the table at Gold Star and just BS'ing before the GCAS meeting on Sunday. Maybe we could look into doing this every couple of months or so so some of the folks that work Saturdays could attend...

I like the idea of Sunday afternoon the 30th. It seemed to work out OK even at Jack's an Rob's place having the game on with no sound and plant talk too. (Though I had no real interest in the game other than a vague home town spirit, so it was no big deal to me.)

My vote goes for Sunday as well. I already put in for a vacation day on the 15th because I have a new studio project starting that day, so I can't take off another Saturday.... Football and plants would be nice.

Hi everybody,

I'm going to do my best to make it to this meeting so I can properly introduce myself. I could probably make any of the times listed, but I favor holding the meeting when the largest number of people could make it. I vote for Sunday.

Also...I have six rummy nose tetras that I'd like to give to a (very) good home. They are lovely and desease free, as far as I know. I did have Ich in the tank as recently as three week ago, so be warned (take them at your own risk). These are some of my very favorite fish and these particular ones are beautiful, but I want to try something different. I could bring them to the meeting. (I'm going to send this part of this message out via email to get to as many as possible, so don't be offended at reading it twice).

regards,

Russ

So far that's three votes for Sunday, any one else have any input?

It will be good to meet you Russ and I would be more than happy to take the Rummynose off of your hands. I could even be persuaded to trade you some plants for them I think I will move the B. brigittaea out of the 30g and use it for a "Q" tank for a week or two just in case. It would suck to get Ich in a 75g tank!

I know the Bengals are kickin butt his year but the Ravens (my team) are sucking big time. It just so happens the Ravens play a Monday night game on the 31st so Sunday the 30th is fine for me. The Bengals do play on Sunday the 30th (Green Bay) at 1pm so that might be an issue for some of you...

What about having an open house program thingy. We could rotate between members houses each month. The hosting member would offer up some small treats and beverages to the visitors. The other members would offer donations to the club and that would cover the hosts expenses. If there were anything left over, that would go towards the club. It would not be a "pay your club dues" deal. We would still not collect dues. Just anything people wanted to donate would be good. That way we could build up a little rainy day fund for the next time some famous plant guy wants to come visit us. We could also use this fund for other things such as group buys maybe or a nice bank of test kits or maybe pay for a meeting at a restaurant somewhere or insert ideas here. You can see where I am going with this.

This would also give everyone a chance to get out to others houses. Give everyone a chance to show off. Not everyone got to go on tour with Tom. I would like to be able to show off my tanks. Of course, after they are all a little more established. I think this would also give people that can not always make it north a chance to get to some meetings and maybe play host. Get everyone more involved. I know Matt does not mind at all having everyone over, but this would also take some of the burden off of him and his family.

Sorry a little off topic. I think Sunday would be great. I will be working a banquet in Columbus for Les Wexner on Saturday. I would not be able to attend on Saturday. We can always watch the Bengals roll Green Bay on TV. Do we have any die hards in the club? I would be willing to host first if no one else wants to. Since there is not a GCAS meeting we wouldn't need to be in Cincy anywhere.

Anyway these are just my thoughts about the meeting. Please feel free to post up your thoughts and get some discussion started.

Early Sunday afternoons are O.K. with me. I do have other engagements at 6:30pm but before that is fine.

OK, six votes for Sunday, October 30th. Anyone not interested in having the meeting on the 30th speak up!

Are you volunteering to host the October meeting Jim or do you want to wait until November and your tank gets a bit more established? I think you will probably be OK since you are using established substrate and filters on your tank but who knows. Keep the CO2 up and I think everything will be fine.

I don't mind at all if someone else wants to host the meeting. Actually, it wopuld be nice to get out and see some others tanks for a change. That was part of the plan in my original post on GCAS. Here is one of the qoutes from my post:

"...That is where having monthly meetings at different folks houses would come into play. Most planted tanks have to be seen to be appreciated. Pictures just don't do them justice."


and here is the complete thread for those that may be a bit bored: http://www.gcas.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3438

I will get back to you on that. But I think I would like to. Let me schedule an appointment with the advisor and I will let you know for sure.
