    Sorry to be PITA but what is the reason for changing location on such a short notice?

    I know the official message said "due to weather and logistical" but you would expect weather to be cold and swap is not outside in the rain.

    Were you at Max's when we had the meeting with the coral breeder? That room was a damn icebox, it wasn't inside the store itself where there's thousands of gallons of water at 80 degrees to keep things warm. It's much too large, much too tall for space heaters to be of use, and corals sitting out on tables most likely would become a little too cold for survival.

    Due to some technical challenges, there would have been an outside component. The situation would be different from any past meeting/event at Max's. THe decision did not come lightly. If there wasn't a major concern, we wouldn't not have made major programmatic changes :)

    I see a glaring flaw Mike... Max had suggested not using that room but rather doing it in the store :) I suggested next door which could be heated as well.

    FWIW the owner of the building has access to 100 or so 10 x 10 canopies so water shouldn't have been an issue. Chabot is a great spot though :)

    Strange, I was just at my local Stop and Rob and saw them, why I noticed them I dunno, why this thread went in that direction I don't know...

    It was nice meeting you as well...Its kinda crazy when you know people by their handles and you come up with this pseudoimpression of each one, then when you finally meet them, you find out you were way off...(yours by the way was your avatar)
