    There is no age restrictions on membership, you just need to be a fanatic. Feel free to contact me, or any of the other board members if you have questions no joining.

    I like the idea of a day trip to one of the stores. We might even consider a trip to chicago sometime in the future as wel, hit a few of the stores in town and then catch Rods in dekalb on the way back.

    imac in may sounds really cool, ive heard about them but was never able to go.
    march trip to rods sounds good too, if everyone go lets try and time it right for when he just got some of those killer corals in.
    cedar rapids sounds fun. and waterloo would be fun too.
    i think you seen my car when i was at your house, im afraid to drive that baby to west davenport let alone chitown, so maybe we could rent a car or just throw in gas money in someones car for these trips., other than that i dont have any problems with anything.
    but like anything else, i sometimes must work. and hopefully work wouldnt screw up these events for me.

    It all sounds good to me, I think the trip to Rod's would be a good time.  I also think the potluck would be a good time.  I'd like to go to the IMAC this year, I haven't made it in the past but I should be able to go this year.  Does anybody want to carpool to the Jan. meeting?  I can drive, but I have a small coupe and I could handle possibly two people.  If anyone has a large SUV or van maybe we could all chip in on gas and make the trip together.

    All great ideas eins!  I would love to go to Rods as well, I hear he is a wealth of information and has some fantastic clowns that he breeds.  And if you are also talking about the B/N reefing store, it is called Johnny's Reefing Experience.  I wish I was going to make it to IMAC this year but I think we are going to be in FL at that time.  I'm jealous of anyone being able to make that trip.  I DO plan however, to make it to the Rockford Midwest Frag Fest that is May 3rd and 4th (I won the entrance ticket at our very own frag swap!)  It looks like a great line up of speakers at that event (lots of the same as IMAC).  It helps that my son lives 20 mins away and I'll have a place to stay overnight.
    I also wondered about carpooling to our meeting in Iowa City this month.  I would be glad to drive or pitch in on gas, or I was wondering if Billy wanted to carpool with me from his house if he doesn't have other plans?  Should be lots of fun!!

    Thanks for the input everyone...

    Sounds like Rods is a must do.
    As for the Hockey or Tank Tour....my thought was that if we didnt have enough tanks to visit we could have an alternative plan to ensure that we have some type of get together that month.
    Please throw out any ideas that you would like to have considered....this is your club, I am just the organizer.

    Keep the comments/ideas comming.....I do however want to wrap up the first half of 08 by next week so we can include our plans for this area in the BOD presentation at the club meeting on the 19th.

    thanks
