    @Region: Des Moines & Ames

    Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow! Although the 'RSVP' button on the event only lists 8 people coming, from all the responses here, it looks like we will be around 15 people (at least)! That would be a great turnout!

    Event to start at 12:30 - with plans to eat @ 1:00

    Potluck: I will be providing the main dish - lasagna
    Others - please bring an appetizer, bread (garlic :)), salad, or dessert.
    Drinks: I've got water bottles. If you want an alcoholic beverage - BYOB. If someone wants to bring a couple liters of soft drinks that would be great also.

    So far I've seen that someone is bringing a meat/cheese tray w crackers, cookies or a dessert, garlic bread, and a relish tray. Any additions to that list would be great.

    Bring a frag for the swap if you have one. Dave and I will have a few extra.

    Door prizes for club members - Frag kit, Ebo Jager heater, DI resin, GFO, Activated carbon, Kalkwasser, Calcium supplement, Alk supplement, a couple test kits.. I've got a dozen prizes - so that should be one for each club member - unless we end up with alot of additional club members that didn't RSVP.

    See you tomorrow!!!!

    I just replied as a maybe. I think I may have just got out of chaperoning tomorrow's winter formal.
     
  6. When it's really cold out, like today, I'll fill a plastic dish with hot water and put it in the cooler beside the baggie with coral in it, kinda acts like a heat pack.

    Thanks everyone that was able to make it. Had a good turnout with 14 members plus another 5 spouses, kids, or non-members. It was a nice mix of long-time and relatively new members. We had some discussion on events for the new year - so looking forward to seeing more activity again in the region!! I hope everyone had a good time!
    It was nice to see new and old faces (as in membership, not age......).

    Also, sorry I missed the party. Wife was working, kid had 2 BB games, one against the #7 3rd grade team in the country - now that was an interesting game, we didn't get totally smoked but at times it was like we were playing a college team, they had some moves!

    Hope everyone got enough flake food! I need to send the rest of those boxes around!
