    BBQ Meetup
    Date: December 1st, 2007
    Time: 11:30am
    Place: Johara Chapman's House in Alameda, CA (exact address will be pm'd)
    Cost: Please bring $3 to cover for BBQ and other costs! Thanks guys.
    Description:
    This will be a very informal for fun get together. It will hopefully feature a few great barbeque masters and a lot of good food. We would like to tie this together with any coral trading and propagation, and some mini informal workshops. Throughout the day we will be hopefully be playing Blue Planet or some other related or unrelated movie / series. A few of us will organize some little informal workshop sessions. We'd like everyone to either bring some food (sign up) or pitch in with some money to cover costs of what is being cooked.

    Videos
    Blue Planet - Anybody have this who can bring it to the BBQ?
    Planet Earth - Very cool video also from BBC. I can bring this series, it has interesting ocean episodes.

    Workshops

    Photography - Bring your photo equipment and questions! We're not pros nor experts, but we can give a few tips and pointers. We'll probably briefly go over how to shoot Full Tank Shots, fish, and coral with a different array of cameras. Best to bring yours so we can try it out on Johara's tank.

    Fragging - We may do a quick frag session, but I'll need a volunteer to organize and coordinate this. I can bring a dremel with diamond wheel, more would be better.

    Is there any fee to defer some of the costs (food has got to cost something...)?

    I've got a copy of Blue Planet that I can bring along (should look fine if it's not being played on a HDTV). I'll bring the camera equipment and some fragging stuff along (Dremel, diamond wheels, scalpels, etc.).

    Hey Eric,

    If you're not planning on bringing food, we should definitely try to help cover the cost of the food brought. I'll be organizing that as soon as we have a menu on hand ;) I'll probably get that rolling later, unless someone wants to take charge of food?

    Awesome, thanks for bringing blue planet =)

    You can help run the photography workshop thing too! I was hoping you could come and help out =)

    I would like to come if anyone wants to share a ride from South San Jose.
    I could drive if you drive me to next BAR meeting ;-)

    I'll be there.

    Tentatively bringing ribs, and maybe a grilled turkey :D

    If people need help fragging big stuff, I'll bring a diamond tile saw.

    Ah, missed the part about the pot luck. Very similar to the tank tour then.

    Change your schedule, Ian. :D

    Oooh fun! Maybe I'll finally learn to get some decent shots of my tank! It's a 155 bowfront - a photography challenge. I'll try hard to avoid a crash between now and then.

    eric: No worries about the HDTV - I don't have one.

    Norman - pm me if you want to discuss coordinating BBQ

    I'll have povidine iodine on hand for dips if needed.

    iani: I think we're planning to hang out until 5:00 or so if interest lasts.

    If anyone knows how to catch nocturnal hairy crabs living in acropora colonies please bring your knowhow and crab-catching equipment!!!

    Yes, avoiding a crash would be ideal ;) Bowfront should be fun. I used to have a bowfront and took fine shots through it, just have to be careful of angles.

    I may be able to bring a projector and screen... would that be something we'd be interested in?

    Cool I would like to see what your 155g bowfront has so I can get some ideas for the one at work.

    Art - I'm in for the potluck
