Tank Tours 2006

Almost every day we see a post about someone setting up a new tank, putting a new piece of equipment online, or showing a new DIY project.

This is an excellent opportunity to open your house, and doors to your aquarium, for us all to see. Even if you just set it up last weekend or just got into the hobby yesterday, this tank tour is for you to enjoy.

 

If you don't want to show yours, come take a look at ours.

However, in order to have this work, we have to have tanks to show.

Please take a look at your calendars, talk with fellow hobbiest near you, and consider a date to show.

Please PM several dates that work for you and I'll group them by location.

Saturdays or Sundays are generaly the best with times of 1-3 and 3-5 seeming to work best, but it not limited to anytime or day.

 

Please PM me your actual FULL address and a phone number you will answer promptly.

I CAN NOT DO THIS SOLELY BY PM. I must have a phone number you will answer.

 

Show us your tank and equipment

I plan to put the schedule in this spot as it gets worked out.

 

Please post your interest or questions below in this thread so others

catch the fever and also pick a date to show.

 

I may again plan to show my tank right after the Feb meeting.

We had a great time last year and I met a lot of new people.

 

I will also show over the summer with others in McLean

I would like to open the townhouse to a tour. I will have to check with the Wife to find a good date. I am sure Lee would do a tour as well, i know Gav is in the area.

I set up the first TANK TOURS for CMAS and we had 2-3 tanks each weekend all summer long and into the fall. I had as many as 50 people for mine over a 3 hour span and it was great. We are lucky here at WAMAS to have a half dozen showings attended by less than 10 folks with some getting no attendees.

 

This a perfect way to see, learn and meet fellow hobbiests.

Most showings include frag swaps, stories and many have refreshments.

 

THIS IS NOT A CONTEST, it's a chance to see other tanks.

 

Talk to your nearest fellowhobbiests and agree on a date and make this the best

TANK TOUR series yet.

 

The more that show the more work for me.

Work me!

So this year may shape up pretty strong for Tank Tour 2006.

I have already recieved 5 PM's and several are posting here (no PM info yet) so we're off to a great start in the first 24hrs.

Look at a calendar and have us over!

You can do it.

Okay......since I screwed up last time........

 

But - summer is tough for me as that's GOLF season. Any thoughts on doing it earlier, like sooner? Seems lots of folks "do reef" in the winter & less so as the weather warms up.

Yeah do we have some parameters around the time (other than weekends)

 

Like are we thinking as early as march? (I could probably come up witha weekend in that month).

Look at a calendar and have us over!

 

It makes no difference when we start or what day of the week.

We just need to start...........

I was carefull this time not to say "summer tank tours" which was how I started it for CMAS because we had no meetings during the summer.

 

Actually,

I'm having two people over this Thursday night for a tour and a swap so

you might say it's already started.

PM me when you want to opemn your doors and I'll set it up.

I will put my tank up for display. I will have to get back to you on a good time (not immediately soon though, March or April maybe).

 

A bonus is, I live just down the street from Fins&Feathers in Ashburn. You could visit this store, bring $ cause the prices are good and you will want something. :)

 

When I decide on a time, I will coordinate with Sean at F&F to make sure he will be at the store for potential visitors. Ask him about his Spring plans :2thumbsup:

I had a PERSONAL tour from flowerseller! What an awesome tank... thanks for answering all my questions.

 

My wife really likes your tank too!

 

The frags are doing well.. some have opened fully already!

 

This tank tour thing is a great idea and Id love to see other tanks as well. I'd offer mine up for tour, but there really is not much to see. :(

Chris,

Let me know when you are planning on doing your tank tour. I live in Leesburg, so if you would like, it would be good to try and do them together.

Mine is open for viewing. Let's say Feb 25th before the WAMAS meeting?, at or around 12-2pm, or perhaps after the WAMAS meeting? 6-8pm? LMK who is interested.

I would be interested in seeing it. Thanks for the offer. I would be up for seeing it before the meeting, if you live close by.

If you sent me a PM about Tank Tours and I did not reply, Please resend it.

It must have been caught up in the recent forums problems and I'd like to include you.

Thank you,
