  1. The November meeting will be at Luis's (Gonzo620) home at 1727 Jacques Drive in Lebanon IN on Saturday November 13th from 4pm to 6pm. The theme of this months meeting is the annual pay it forward. You may ask what that is... The concept is simple everyone has tank items lying around that they cannot use and can't or do not want to go through the hassle to sell. Bring your items and during the meeting members will have the opportunity to select that item. You may not even know you need it until you see the item. This portion of the meeting is open to club members only. You may see heaters, pumps, old lights plumbing parts. If you are bringing items to donate there are no leave behinds please make sure to take back with you anything not picked Additionally most of us do not get the chance to venture to out of the area stores. That gave us an idea to organize a field trip to Aquarium World in Lafayette. Aquarium World setup at the frag swap this year. The idea is to meet at Luis at 1pm and carpool to Aquarium World in Lafayette. This is not part of the official club meeting and we will return to Luis' for the meeting. Please RSVP below for both events the same day. And for 2022 the frag swap will be Saturday April 2nd and we will have setup April 1st let everyone know
  2. This is a great lesson for all of us with significant others.................. https://www.newsweek.com/video-woman-cooking-husbands-pet-fish-teach-him-lesson-viewed-7m-times-1639103
  3. After the board elections this year the following were the results: Elections: New Staff and Board Members 2022 Secretary - Craig Martin (CMRun) Treasurer - Ben Commerce - Co-chairs: Ryan (ryansweet) and Luis (Gonzo620) Education - Co-chairs: Doug Duerloo (dduerloo) and Mike Duffy ((Mike762) Membership - Hector DelaFuente III (HDIII) President is not up for election this year. As you will notice we ran co-chairs for commerce and Education this year. For Commerce as both the chairs are new it will be great for the club for contact with existing vendors and sponsors and for the frag swap. As past commerce chairs can tell you this position can be overwhelming especially around the time of the swap. For Education chair having two chairs to coordinate both in person and remote education topics will do nothing but help the club members learn the science and art of reef keeping Welcome both new and returning Board members and staff. I would like to personally thank the Board members and chairs whose terms will be ending: Mikayla - Commerce Kyle - Membership Brian - Education Bob - Secretary The club would not be what it is today without their contributions and hours of volunteering. Look for more news and updates and as always if you have an idea or something that would help the club be better for all members please do not hesitate to reach out Mike Miller (TankNovice) 317 730 7049
