First topic message reminder :

I'm thrilled to announce the next CVAS meeting scheduled for March 16th at 2:00 PM will be held at KG Tropicals, in King George!  Owners John and Lisa have graciously offered to host our March meeting in their awesome shop, and anyone who attended last year's meeting there knows what a treat it is to visit.



Please visit their website, KG Tropicals and check it out! Plan on browsing the selections and bring a cooler to carry home any livestock - you KNOW you'll want to! We'll also have an opportunity to meet and get to know some of their regular customers, other aquarium hobbyists, who will be attending.

Liz will drive and can accommodate several passengers, so anyone who wants to tag along can carpool. Everyone is invited to bring a snack or soft drink (water will be provided).

Please REPLY here and let us know you'll be joining us!

I will be attending and would probably be buying some fish too. Ron said I may be able to car pool from Richmond area. What are the details and the directions? I would be coming from Charlottsville area and can meet. Thanks in advance. Steve

Steve, you can ride with us in my Expedition. I'll PM you the directions to my house, which is very close to 295 and Staples Mill (Rt 33) so a pretty straight shot from C-ville.

imthere REMINDER:

 swimmy The meeting will last about 2 hours (I failed to include that on the original post) so we'll be heading home around 4, give or take.

 swimmy Bring a little cash along for the 50/50 raffle, which involves buying raffle tickets for $1 each, and if your ticket is drawn you split the pot with the club.  

 swimmy Don't forget to bring a snack of some kind! Water will be provided.


I look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones!

Lotta fun today, great to see everyone.

Really happy to have meet Sarah, Steve, Anik, Lee and Joel...

Hadn't seen Dennis and his wife in a long time, so it's great they took the time to attend.

Thanks to John & Lisa for opening up the shop on their off day, they are "stand up" folks and it's always good to see them.

And many thanks to those at CVAS who put it altogether.

Okay - what did you pick up for your tanks at today's meet? Images?

Ditto to the above as well as thanks Deb and Liz for seeing that the meeting was scheduled and planned and a big thanks to Liz for graciously driving several of us there very safely and back. I had a great time going, being there, and returning.
Here's pic of what I picked up while at KGTROPICALS

Great meeting everyone! Thanks to Liz for driving (and the snails) and it was very nice to meet the other attendees and fellow aquarium keepers. My drive home was no problem but the timing was good - a little later and would have had much more snow.

At first I thought Tracey was wearing some sort of Washington Nationals Playboy promotional hat. Then I heard Jim Mora ranting about Playoffs in the back of my head and I was at ease.

I had to go back and look at the image and then I realized what you were saying - cracked me up Lane!!

But it does sound good "Thegundog aka Tracey the Fish Keeping Playboy from Fredericksburg". I think my lovely wife Leslie will like my new nickname   Very Happy
