The next REEF NETWORK DINNER will be at 6:30 pm on March 18, 2009

Hosted by Callum (hockey nut):

The Big Ridge Brew Pub
15133 hwy #10.
Surrey, BC

Main intersection is Hwy 10 and Panorama Dr. by the YMCA. 1 block west of Hwy 10 and 152nd


As this is a very busy time for the restaurant we will require a response to this post to ensure enough seating.

We will have to close reservations on March 16 to give Callum the time to finalize the arrangements with the restaurant.

Thank Callum

Book me in tentatively! I am thinking I will also bring a goody bag of a couple Zoanthid frags and a Nano Frag Rack to do a little draw for those that show up.
Who thinks that is a good idea?

I can't make this concrete due to my busy day time job schedule; however, as it sits right now it looks pretty good.

I think that is a great idea...and I hope I win.

03-17-2009, 05:39 AM
I too like that idea.

03-17-2009, 06:22 PM
+5 I like the idea of a draw.
On another note, does anyone have any spare 20l or 5 gal pails to spare that you could bring to the dinner? I am going to be changing tanks soon and need a bunch. Thank you in advance.

Wow that was one of the best Dinner Meetings yet.

I would like to thank Callum (hockeynut) for organizing the event, and everyone who came out.
There were a number of very arousing discussions and everyone seemed to have a great time.

I want to thank Janet from OA for keeping the people at the south end of the table up to date on what's happing at OA.

I want to thank Ian from OceanicCorals for the door prizes and for keeping the people at the north end of the table up to date on what's happening at OceanicCorals.

You are always welcome to our monthly Dinner Meetings.

Nice to meet everyone in person. I appreciate the warm welcome!

Big thanks to everyone who came out last night for dinner. Very good turn out with lots of great conversation.

It was great to see Janet and Ian from some local fish stores attend this dinner. It's pretty cool to get their perspective about this hobby and get some great info.

Great door prizes too!

Hope to see you all next month. :)
