I think this is a great idea, and everyone benefits. You can rent or loan unused equipment, trade fish, frags, whatever. I am really hoping to get a FW club going.

Well I've hosted a couple small get togethers so far, and things have gone pretty well. A lot of people expressed interest, a lot fewer actually attended (which is to be expected I suppose ), but overall attendance has been increasing. Its been extremely informal so far with turn outs of 8-10 people, but a lot of good information and frags have been traded. A couple of the attendees expressed interest in hosting something similar, so if anyone is interested in further updates just PM me your email address, and I will try to contact you with info if a date is set. I personally do not have the time or desire right now to work on making this into anything more formal than it currently is (guest speakers, meeting halls, memberships etc.), but if others are interested in doing so, thats excellent. So far things have been SW oriented, with frag trading probably being the biggest draw, but I'm definitely not opposed to FW participation. Comments, questions, concerns?



Kris, haven't heard from you in quite a while. How is the tank doing?

I am interested in a FW division of the club as long as I am not the onliest one! I know there are FW aquarists in this town, I just need to find them. I am getting ready to move this spring and will probably have quite a few plants and possibly some fry that I will want to unload.

As far as the SW end of it goes, I think it is a great idea to leave it loose and let it develop slowly over time, rather than create a formal meeting schedule. A schedule will naturally develop as the membership increases. I have heard of clubs that meet on a rotating basis at the homes of the members, so that is cool.

The meet went very well, had a turn out of around 10 people. We traded/sold some frags and then went to another members house to check out his display tank and prop. setup. Nothing scheduled for the future yet, but a couple people have expressed interest in hosting at their houses.

I am impressed - 10 people is not a bad turnout.

I just joined this regional group and would be interested. I just got started with reef so I would be a frag buyer and not a trader at this point. I've been a fishkeeper for over 20 years. Been frequenting Fishworld and Richmond Aquarium out here in Chesterfield.
