    Ok, so who all is in on the tour? I see several people have said they want to be a stop, but no names here rather than me.

    I wonder if we could get Don Methany in Marion to give us a tour of his Clown breeding setup. If there's any interest in that, maybe I could give him a call and see if he would be willing.

    I just talked to Don on the phone. It sounds like he would be interested in coming on the tour and maybe even be a stop on the tour (he's going to let me know). It also sounds like he might be interested in joining the club! I gave him our website address, so maybe he'll poke his head in here and say hi.

    I am going to have to take our tank off the tour /site/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/_default/emoticons/sad.gif Our system crashed last night, we lost all our fish and snails. The crabs and corals seem to be stable, except for our large leather, it looks pretty bad. This reallllllllly sucks. We would still like to come see other peoples tanks, and hopefully be a stop next time.

    Wow, that's a real bummer! I'm sorry to hear that you had a crash. Do you have any idea what caused it? It's odd that your fish died and your corals are ok... It seems like it would be the other way around.

    Its looking like Noon or 2, whatever works best for everyone else really as my schedule is flexible. We will get it narrowed down to a specific time when more people chime in on this tour. Cmon guys i know there are more of you that want to show off your tanks than just 4 of us.

    I just want to point out that you don't have to have a established mature tank for it to be a stop on the tour. Anything from a brand new tank to a well establshed tank can make for a good stop on the tour.

    If we really only have 4 people willing to be a stop on the tour in a town of 100K+ people, then we REALLY need to work on getting the word out about this club in CR!

    Just an idea that we did in the Quad Cities, we limited the number of stops on the tour this fall to four, this allowed us more time to BS at each stop and to get a more in depth look at the tanks. The tour still lasted from around 1pm until around 7pm. This also left us with tanks to tour in Jan-Feb.
    We also dropped in to our LFS as a group, which I think is good for exposure to them as a group.

    So have we got our official list of stops for the tour yet? I think Billy's idea of limiting it to 4 or 5 tanks is a good one.

    Josh- Let me know what you want me to do on this. I don't want to take over since you started this event and have organized it thus far, but I am willing to help in any way you need.
