View Full Version : North Shore Reef Network

So it seems that there is a great interest in putting together a Reef Network over toward the North Shore/Vancouver area like the folks out toward Surrey way. I've always wanted to go out there and join in but is a heck of a trek, so I'm bringing the idea home.

I am not limiting this to North Shore people. Anyone can come on out; as they say "The more, the merrier!".

If you are interested in this please either PM me or give a +1 here on the page and I'll PM you. I'll organize something for the very near future.

Game on!

This is cool! I've got well over 20 people signed up. Dinner and tank tours are on the way! I am planning the first dinner for next week. If you have not yet done so, or are interested in coming, please go to the following link and check off when you are available.

Once I have a day for dinner I can go about organizing tank tours. See you all soon!

It would probably take me no longer time to get to N. Vanc as it does to get down to the bottom of Surrey. I would probably come.

Hey everyone! Looks like we're going to do the first North Shore reef Network Dinner on January 20th, 2010 at 7pm. We will meet at Boston Pizza on Marine Drive. We will discuss a weekend for tank tours at the dinner. I hope to see everyone there!

It's great to see another Dinner being set up in a different part of the lower mainland. Maybe next month I'll be able to attend the north shore dinner depending on the date.

Have a great night. :peace:

If you are refering to The Big Ridge, only one side of it is a pub...... and that is not the side we have our monthly meeting / dinners. We hold our reef network dinner on the restaurant side.:mrgreen:

Bummer! That makes two of us under the weather (Who'd have thought scuba diving in the winter would get you sick?). Get better and we'll catch you next time.

So sorry, but work trumped my desire to come out to dinner to meet everyone. --- which really sucks, because I was REALLY looking forward to meeting everyone. Man; I hate owning a business sometimes!!!!!

Hope everyone had a great time tonight & not sure what the plan for a tank tour is,... or when,... but I would like to offer to host everyone at my place to make up for missing tonight. Anyway hopefully we'll catch you next time.

Regards,

Scott.

Same here. Work emergency struck at the wrong time again. Why these almost never happen during the regular business hours? Must be Murphy's law at work :cry: Anyway, I hope dinner was a success and there will be more to come.

Cheers!

Thanks for organizing the dinner.

Felicia, Richard, Sherry, & I had a great time. Good to meet everyone. Wish we were sitting a big round table though, so it would be easier to talk with more people.

Hi everyone;

Just thought it a good idea to touch base with everyone.... After what sounds like a very successful dinner ( I couldn't come due to work) I would like to suggest a tank tour. Obviously we won't be able to get to everyone's tank in one evening, so I suggest we select three or four, and maybe have dinner afterwards. Maybe people could even bring a few frags or equipment to sell/trade/give away should others be interested. If anyone is interested in doing a tank tour please reply to this thread & I'll take care of the organizing.... BTW: Big "Thanks" to ScubaSteve for organizing the last outing. This one will be my pleasure to organize.

Regards,

Scott.

I'd be interested, sooner rather than later though and on a week end would be nice!:D

Hi all,

Just noticed this thread, and I'm interested. I'm in the process of setting up my first marine tank (I hope to have it wet by spring/summer).

Hi all,

Raf and I would be up for hosting. We have 4 tanks:

220 FOWLR
90 Reef
32 Paludarium
32 Amazonian

Weekends work best. Also, people & kids attending must love dogs... we have 3. :)

Ya guys! It'd be good to take another crack at this but I cannot, unfortunately, spearhead this anymore as I am simply too busy. I'd love to participate!

7 year old thread.... and I'm not sure this group exists.

Might be time for another social meet.

I also heard Acepumping wanted to host a frag swap.
