All right reefers, we've got a special treat for the June meeting. Steve Weast will be hosting at his beautiful house out on the west side. For those of you that did not get to attend the last meeting at Steve's house, his tank is drop-dead gorgeous and the set up will make all you DIY's green with envy.

And if that wasn't enough, Steve is providing all the goodies for a BBQ which our resident BBQ king/expert chef/reefin' buddy Krux (Ryan) will prepare. (Ryan, make sure you wash your hands after you frag those zoos! :eek: )

We'll be doing this event by E-vite and I will have all of those emailed out by Saturday, the 7th, at noon. If you don't get yours, please send me a PM or an email. Mark your calendars for Sunday, June 29th at 12:30 PM for good food, a great looking tank, lots of reef talk and of course, frag trading!

Thanks so much to Steve and Ryan :)

Alice

Yeah, who is Steve? And count me in, too. :) Hopefully allergies will have subsided by then. At least up north they wont be as bad as here in Eugene... sometimes I hate this place.

lol!

ok...for those of you who REALLY need to know who this Steve character is:

Steve's 500+ gallon in-wall community reef is an example of what we all should strive for, or at least dream about.
<a href="http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2002-03/totm/index.htm">Here's a link to a feature done on Steve's tank over a year ago</a><br><br>
Steve's system is almost a health risk it's so amazing, so take your heart medication people, and bring a paper bag to breathe in. It's what "wet" dreams are made of:

I think Steve is using the worm as a whip to keep us away. :funny:

WOO WHOO!! Ive found a local group! I live in Tigard, (just outside portland for you seattle-oians) I am excited to become a part of your society! I currently have a 50 gal Fowlr tank, with a 15 gal fuge, and just recently set up a nano ( well,,, its 18, not too small...) reef.

I would love to join you on the 29th for the meeting, and get to know some local folks with the same addiction I have :)

Can someone point me in the direction to learn more about your society? Is it too late to be invited to the meeting on the 29th?

thanks!!
