    I think it would be neat to have one or more speakers talking about controllers/dosing pumps/anything else tech/electronic. I for one am not super knowledgeable about what is out there an how it works and how expensive things are and how necessary some of these things are. Maybe even just club members that use different controllers could go through why they chose the equipment the did and what else they looked at, etc... I definitely learned a lot when Jake Adams talked about LEDs, maybe someone could do the same for electronics and gadgets,etc...

    I like it :) There are a bunch of members that knowledgeable in this area. This could also be an after hours event at Green Marine or an off month for BAR :)

    FYI I'm heavy into this from an industrial automation perspective... I don't use "typical" stuff you tend to see on tanks. I'll hold the microphone for a few minutes. Just tell me when it's my turn.

    +1. BAR has a lot of knowledgeable people about controllers, automation equipment & techniques and remote monitoring. I'd find this useful.

    All I see is annoying posts. Grow up before you get the ban hammer.
