    Oh sorry, I thought orders were over. I dont know if I will make it. If I can, and if there is a bag or so left, I can buy 1/2/some. I have food so not worried about the tanks.

    Don't forget the DIY food event on Saturday at Zach's house!!

    We plan to make 40 bags of DIY food. Currently we have requests for a little over 20 bags. So if you haven't signed up yet, but want to come, we can still take a few more people - just post here. Ingredients have been ordered, so we won't be able to go over 40 bags.

    Also, we are going to hold the cost at $10 per bag for attendees, and $15 for non-attendees for this event. Bud and I talked and the cost of some of the ingredients is going up. So, next year if we have another DIY food event in this region, the cost will likely increase to $12/bag. So - you may want another bag now!!

    @Barrett@Barrett - I am counting on you having the food making tote. If you sent me a msg previously, I have misplaced it. Please confirm that you have it and will bring it tomorrow morning. Otherwise we will have a big problem.

    I have the seafood and Premium Aquatics supplies as well as the tote, bags, food processor, drill, mixing bit etc. Zach has the Brine Shrimp Direct supplies. Everything is good to go, just need helpers!!

    I'll print off the instructions. I'm bringing all the stuff to Zach's early in the morning, then I have to take off for a marching band competition in Johnston, but I'll be back after 10. I'm probably not going to help make anything because I've been under the weather this week. But I can clean up!!

    Everyone only really only needs to show up, and if you can, bring a knife and a cutting board

    See you in the morning!!

    It was nice to see everyone that turned out to help make food. A special thanks to Zoobie for lending us the use of their kitchen. My fish and I greatly appreciate it!
