We will be meeting this time on June 18th, and June 19th for the 2005 Summer Southeast Gathering! This will take place at The Fish Store
, which is just north of Chattanooga, TN. There will probably be a cookout on Saturday, the 18th, and we will also have our quarterly SMAS (Smoky Mountain Aquarium Society) meeting. Everyone is welcome, and you do not have to be a SMAS member to take part in the festivities. There is also talk about a trip to the Tennessee Aquarium or maybe the one in Gatlinburg also. The ones who come in on Friday night usually meet up with the locals and we have a wonderful dinner together. There's a great Best Western in Dayton, TN, which is on the same street as the fish store, and it's very reasonable and close to everything. It has microwaves, refrigerators, and high speed internet access in every room, and hot tub rooms are also available. Saturday is the biggest day of eating, trading, and just hanging out with the nicest folks I know. Sunday, everybody usually winds down, and folks start heading for home around 3:00 p.m. So if you are looking for a good time, and are ready for a road trip, this is the place to be on 6/18 & 6/19. We are looking for new members for the club, and would just love to meet you. I am driving over 500 miles each way just to be there if that tells you anything, so come on down!
