    Well its been a year since I did one of these, but I think its time. (And Enderturtle is asking for one) I am thinking early November and I am trying to work out this date with JAR since he has the nice place for the potluck. I need to confirm with him.

    First I need to see who will be interested in showing their tanks. So please respond here if you can. I think we need at least 5 tanks to make worth it. I will pick a date depending on availability of folks.

    For those who have not gone to this before you can click on


    Its always been a good time with a good group of people. We usually go from 11am to about 4pm or so- with a potluck or something.

    Although this is NOT an official BAR Event - I want to open it to around 20 current supporting 2015 BAR Members....priority RSVP will go to people showing tanks and paying members. If you are not a paying member you can still sign up, but ones that are will get first spots. We have always ran out of room before. I will have to see how much interest or help I get to organize.

    Again - This is NOT a club sponsored event - so all complaints/questions go to me, not the club.

    please respond with this format...you guys know from before : )

    Updated - 11-2 We still have a few spots open.

    Nov 8th - Sunday looks like the date that works for most folks.....Lots of other stuff going on this month.. Please update the tread if you need to change your status/rsvp.

    funny I used to include the Steinhart as part of the tank tour long ago. That way folks didn't have to drive to SF area twice.

    stopped because folks said if they paid for steinhart it would be nice to stay longer there, vs rushing out to view home tanks.

    That makes complete sense

    I'd be glad to show our tank in Mountain View, but that's a long way from SF.

    Going to be out of town the first 2 weeks of Nov, otherwise I'd volunteer to have folks come by - and I'd follow along for sure.
    Not sure how popular a tiny little tank on the tour would be though...

    Tiny little tanks are awesome, we will all be jealous of your self control.

    I don't think any tank is too small to be interesting.

    Our tank is definitely not the nicest tank in this group considering we've moved it three times in a year (and it's hard!) but we'd be happy to show it and our crazy dexters laboratory were we are building FishBit. (In Presidio Park.)
