    @MillerTime@MillerTime - The queue is empty - so you are next up. You can pick it up at my house after today. I will be gone Saturday afternoon/evening, but otherwise I should be around most of the weekend.

    @cameron lake@cameron lake - @MillerTime@MillerTime picked it up on Friday, so I think he would be finished with it in the next few days.

    Also, I just noticed that several of the individuals that have recently used it are not GIRS members. As the PAR meter was purchased for CLUB members, we might need to watch this more closely going forward. @DangerJ@DangerJ or @Dendro@Dendro may want to chime in here.

    That's a very good point - I feel that the PAR meter should only be available to Club members - a perk of joining!

    @DangerJ@DangerJ @Dendro@Dendro - I know that both of you are quite busy. I'm willing to help out in the management of the PAR meter - i.e. - watching who list of who wants to borrow it, keeping it moving when there is a lineup, ..... And I can make sure that going forward, that we pass it on to CLUB members. I'll just follow-up on this, unless/until I hear otherwise from you.

    That sounds great! I think a little self-policing is all that is necessary for this to be successful.

    I apologize, I didn't realize being a member was required when I used it recently!

    I actually didn't even think about it... makes sense.

    Yeah, I kind of forgot about it also when arranging for it to be passed around. Hopefully everyone (non-club members) that had a chance to use it recently will consider joining! Using the club par meter is just one of the good things about being a club member.

    @cameron lake@cameron lake I am done with the Par meter.

    I guess my GIRS membership expired. Didnt really even think about it when I asked to borrow.

    @cameron lake@cameron lake - can you make arrangements to pick up from @MillerTime@MillerTime I will take it then when you have finished with it. I'm getting new bulbs, trying to figure out my problem with my light over the frag tank.
