    In a similar vain as Paradox's vacation buddies, I think it would be awesome to have a few people in the club, maybe at least one from each geographic area, that could be available for tank help. It would be valuable to some of us less experienced reefers. I'm sure it could be an additional source of income for people. I would be willing to pay for help. And there was a thread a while back about a guy in SF wanting to get help. What do you guys think?

    I think it's good idea, I dunno about $$, I think it's in the clubs best interest to help each other advance their reefing skills.

    Someone (I believe it was Rich), mentioned the members map (frappr.com) posted here in the new members section. I think that would be a good guide to who can help that is local, plus you can see how far away Narnia is.

    There are good handful of BAR members I would trust with being in my house and not doing strange things with my underwear drawer, but that being said, I think the last time this came up (maybe when I came back from vacation??) something that was mentioned was at the very least a phone number someone who you do trust can call for assistance in case something goes wrong, that's to say someone with a little more knowledge of reefness.
