My other hobby is reefkeeping and i am on the board of my local reef club and we have meeting each month and its a great time. Really helps with the hobby. So i would definatly be down for something like this

Well depending on the date, I am still in and can provide a talk.. I have the following pretty well prepared, Amphibian Nutrition, what we do and don't know...
Spindly Leg
Caecilians, Living sock puppets (although I am assuming that people want to discuss frogs....)

but am also up for free form discussions...

Ed

South Jersey/Philly are my old stomping grounds, and I'd love to meet some area froggers outside of the Mid-Atlantic area.

Let me know when we pin down a date,
Jason

My vote's in for the Amphibian Nutrition presentation by Ed. Heard it at FrogDay and feel that everyone both new or experienced could benefit from this information.. which could then lead to a free form discussion about related topics (clay substrates and then enclosure/environment itself).

Alright sounds like this is in the making then. Lets start working on a date that is good for everyone. I can do Friday saterday or sunday any time. So whatever works for everyone else works for me.

Ed that sounds fantastic. I think most if not all of us would be thrilled to hear any presentation you would like to make. If not they can get the [email protected]#$ out of my house. (just kidding about that last part)

Saturdays best here, but I can make the other days if need be. Unless you guys want to do it soon (meaning before the holidays), we should plan this for after the holidays, sometime in early January.

I second the vote on this being after the holidays- only two Saturdays stand between us and Christmas.

How are your tanks going? Did you start construction on that 150g yet? If you schedule the meeting for after one of them is built we could bring you plant cuttings to get it going.

A saterday after the holiday is good for me too.

Decided to forgo the 150 for the time being. Have a 65 hex saltwater, 29 saltwater, 46 bow is almost ready for substrate/plants and the other 65 hex will be started on construction as soon as the 46 bow is planted.

46 bow is hopefully going to house red galacts not sure what the 65 is going to hold yet other than PDF's. I am also thinking about getting an exo for my computer desk to have some imi's keep me company while i'm on the comp lol

To many animals at the moment till febuary 1st when the ex moves out. Then the 150 is on lol. At the moment we have 2 cats, a dog, a beta fish, and all my tanks its like a zoo in here (only without the smell, and the poo flinging which i might add ive only even been to a zoo once but that was my favorite part. Well that and tortises humping. yes i know real mature but at least i am honest. The majority of the animals were inside on the day we went. The hippo exibit was really neat though.) will be down to just the tanks when she goes.

Just a heads up that there is a Mid-Atlantic meeting February 9th in Frederick, MD if you are within driving distance- but just to make sure the headcount doesn't go overboard, PM me in advance if you're interested in coming!

And on another note let's finalize a date for ourselves in PA.

Ok well since nobody has made a date suggestion how does FEB 19 sound to everyone? It is a saterday which i think would be the best day. I have cleared it with my landlord to use a pretty good sized room on the first floor so that there will be plenty of room (its usually just a room to look pretty nobody ever uses it for anything). If this date doesn't work for anyone we can move it around I am just trying to get the ball rolling.

Also Ed i don't know how in depth you wanted to get but my landlord has a slide projecter and an overhead if you need it.

I should be able to do the 16th.
My laptop is being difficult so I may have to bring the program on a flashdrive if you can run powerpoint on your computer. Since it looks like a small group, the powerpoint can just run and I can talk and answer questions as needed.

Works for me except i'll have to figure out if i can get powerpoint. I am sure my computer can technically run it i have a pretty decent gaming system i havent found anything my system cant handle. So who all is in? What time is good for everyone? I will give it a day or two to see who posts and after that i will pm anyone who hasn't and said they were in to verify if they still wish to partake.

You don't need PowerPoint, a PP viewer will do just fine:

Another option is OpenOffice which is an open-source office suite (has the equivalent of microsoft word, access, excel, and powerpoint - except it's free).

I'll be there. Thanks Chano!

Anyone else gotten back to you Chano? Since nobody else has replied to the thread, we might be better off setting a later date for better attendance.

I can probably make it, but wouldn't be opposed to scheduling a later date to get more attendance. The spring rugby season is in full swing, so free weekends are getting hard to come by.

A later date would be good for me as I don't get a lot of opportunities to make some overtime.

Well lets do March! I say the earlier the better, since we have been talking about this for 3 months haha. If everyone could email me there contact info I will compile a list of interested people. I think at this point we at least meet informaly soon. Once I receive everyones contact info I will pick a date in the beggining of March. At this point we can just come to some sort of initial meeting spot. Like I said it is important that we just get the ball rolling. Not everyone might bein agreeance on the date, but in this hectic world I think it will be hard to find a date that is suitable to everyone.
Looking forward to hearing from everyone, this should be a exciting endeavor we are embarking on!!

Please put me on the contact list (e-mail is below). I could not do the Feb date, but an early March date might work for me as well.

Well bad news on my end. This has been the month from hell. I lost my job, so i am now loosing my apartment, and found out last night my GF has been cheating on me(yeah i know i had said she was supposed to be moving out but we supposedly patched things up and were supposed to be working on things. The problem is the thing she was working wasnt mine lol). So as i will no longer be living here (mostlikely not even in the area as i dont have anywhere around here to go) I will no longer be able to host and a good chance i wont be able to attend.

Tom,

Lets just use your place then. Lets pick a date..like 2 Sundays from now. Obviously this will not work for everyone but the important thing is to get the ball rolling and achieve some organization. What does everyone think of March 1. Please let us know so we can get it together.

Jacob

If there's interest, you can couple the meet with the Philadelphia Flower Show, which runs March 2nd through 9th, or the Orchid Extravaganza at Longwood Gardens running the entire month of March.
