That was a great meeting!!! I really enjoyed the presentation by Calfo. The frags were awsome!!! and it was so nice to meet so many nice reef keepers.

It is 2 min until 2:00 and most of my little frags are happily glued and tucked away in my tanks. Well all except the montipori and the cup coral. I think I better go get some sleep before I decide where to attach them.

I am hooked, cannot wait till the next meeting.

Wow! What a Great Meeting!

Anthony Calfo's presentation was wonderful. He's a very personable and knowlegeable speaker; I enjoyed it very much and learned some very interesting things! I think the other 116 people at the meeting did as well :)

A very BIG thank you to all the members who pitched in on set-up and tear down. It was a huge help.

Welcome to our 30 new PSAS members! I hope to see you on the board and at upcoming meetings.

Now if it wasn't so darn late I'd dig right into my new Reef Invertebrates book :razz:

I totally agree, it was an awesome meeting. And what a great turn out of people. Lots of new people as well. The frags were a hit for sure. Thanks from me too, to all the RF staff who spent so much time and effort putting together such a fun and informative event. Bravo!!!!! Also what a nice thing to see all of the regular reefers helping out with the setup and teardown of the loads of stuff you all needed to make this happen. Nice team effort!:)

I merged the two "Great Meeting" threads, so please don't think Fly-n-Reef and myself are crazy ;)

Yes, that was excellent. I hadn't actually looked into what was going to be going on at this meeting so I was kind of surprised to see all of the corals that were made available. I'm sure you made several people's day with that generous donation; there were some awesome frags available for all. That's just awesome.

I also really liked where you had the meeting. That was only my second, so I don't know if the Mercer Community Center is the usual digs, but it was reasonably easy to find (only got lost once, Mercer Island is a dark, dark place.) and it was a nice, large, clean facility to do something like that in.

Thanks to everyone who put that together, it was excellent, Anthony was a great speaker.

I could see that the leadership of PSAS and some helpers obviously went to a lot of trouble to organize and prepare the Calfo talk, frag give-away and raffle. I was thinking as my little group rushed off to catch the ferry that the least we could have done was stay and help clean up. Sorry to have bagged you with such a mess and I'll try to be less of a jerk in the future.

I found thumb-end sized pieces of a purple M. "cap", a green cap, a heavy white stag acro and a purple-tip table acro in my tank when the lights came on this morning. It was generous of the person(s?) who donated these large pieces to give away the products of their care and persistence. I also picked up a bottle of BioPlankton in the raffle so I feel I really "made out" at the meeting.

It was good to see someone like A. Calfo who can maintain such an enthusiam for talking to others about the hobby, and especially for helping beginners. Great speaker and I hope you can schedual him again.

Once again thanks for your efforts and congratulations for making this such a rewarding event for PSAS members.

Thanks to the all the staff for putting together such a great even! It was really really awesome getting to learn more about coral propagation and go home with some new pieces as well.

Anthony Calfo was a really great speaker as well, extremely informative.

Thanks and can't wait till we can do this again! :D:D:D

Well it was my first meeting and I have to say I had a great time.

I was really dissapointed when I heard there were frags and I didn't have my display up. Then about halfway through Anthony's fun-filled lecture, I remembered the 30gal tank I had had sitting running in my work room for the last 2.5 months. It was intended as a quarintine, but I had yet to use any meds in it.
SO... I grab a few frags (thanks a million) stoped off at store to grab some superglue and ran them home. I yanked a 250watt pendant out of the closest and rigged the light over the tank and BAM prop tank!

I then mounted and dipped them and well heres the pic today:

I even spied some nice yellow (or at least I thought so at 3am) polyps with my flashlight lastnight on that purp tip:

So now the frags are sitting in a little 30g with with two empty old hobs running carbon bags a CPR2 and a AC 402 P-head. They have a reef optix III over head with a 250watt XM 10KK.

Im off to lower the lights.

Thanks a million and see you folks next time.


A very pleased, Erik.


Oh and Jonah, thanks for the web cam, : ) .

I am glad everyone enjoyed the meeting. I certainly enjoyed Anthony's talk on Coral Propogation. He is a great speaker. We managed to start about a half hour late, hopefully no one was too upset about that. We couldn't get into the place until later than we had thought to set it all up, so a bit of a panic, but we really appreciate the help that was given by the members there at the meeting. Feel free to volunteer at future meetings as well :)

A great turnout, one of our biggest events yet. 117 people. A great meeting, great reefkeeping discussions, great to talk face to face with people you don't get a chance to talk to very often. I am glad I could place some faces to some names.

Thanks to everyone who put in 110% getting this event set up, a well deserved applause to them. Thanks to those who also donated such a generous amount of corals for this event as well. We bought a lot and a lot were donated, a true club effort for sure.

See you at the next meeting. If anyone took some digitals of the meeting, email them to me and I will try and get a few of them up on the site.

Thanks guys I thoroughly enjoyed last night. I am sorry that I didn't stick around to help w/ the clean up, but I had a 50 mile drive home and had to be up at 0530 ! So thanks a million for setting this up. Anthony Calfo was really a great speaker, and fun to talk to. Hopefully we can get him back next year to show him all our progress in our prop's
