    Update 11-7-2014

    Addresses sent out in PM. Please confirm if you did not get anything from me. Wilfred I think you get PM too since your id came up in my list, but let me know and I can send it in email if you need. ( we still have open spots for folks but I need to know by Sat night)

    Please update food so we know what is coming. Looks good so far, but we can use a dessert or other drinks? - I like coke zero :)
    Only bring enough to feed like 8 people (not 14) otherwise we will have too much food and Kris gets leftovers. If there are any food allergies or constraints (vegetarians) let us all know too.

    If Carpools are needed post as well.

    See you all on Sunday!

    Schedule so far

    11am Kris's place -potluck
    1pm Mike's place
    2pm Justin's Place
    3pm Wilfred's Place
    4pm Lucky Ocean store visit
    4:30pm Arnold's place

    Still need updates from folks.. I think it will be a small group this year. About dozen or so folks.

    Update 11/2-2014 - Please let me know if you are bring any guest. We need a headcount for food.

    Updated 10-31-2014 - still some room to rsvp. I guess it won't be sold out this year : )
    Tour day details will come out on Monday ( I will send out in PM again), but its will be 11am to 4pm or so. Also please update me for question or potluck items.

    Thanks Arnold

    Hello Club,

    Updated Sunday Nov 9th confirmed. Only a few weeks away. Seems like the best day since the holidays are coming. I think we have at least 4 to 5 tanks lined up so far, but I guess this year JAR can't host. Kris has offered to host the potluck at his house. Anyways sign up now and let me know if you are bring guests.

    I am probably going to try to add Lucky Ocean as a stop again and working on a BAR discount.

    Also if folks on the tour are interested in a cleanup crew group buy or Coral group buy lmk. I have done a coral buy where folks put in some money we drew coral (sps mini colonies) from a box for like $20 a draw depending on the cost of the box or corals. Just some ideas to make it more fun.

    Its been a year since I did one of these, but I think its time. I am thinking early November (Sunday the 9th?)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 http://www.bareefers.org/forum/index.php?threads/7th-sf-area-tank-tour-sept-25th.12150/for old pics and info. ( I think the pics are gone since we moved forums) or http://www.bareefers.org/forum/threads/8th-sf-tank-tour-2013-sunday-nov-3rd.15761/

    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 2014 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 : )

    Hey Dan, you can still signup...but "Priority" will be given for paid members. ( or you can show your tank and be Priority for that too) That is all so If you are free sign up.

    Nov. 9th is good. I have three different reef biotopes to show. One with ORA Blue Hypnea macro algae. If it's a pot luck, My other half can make
    a dish.
