Was the time confirmed? When I was at the shop Jamie said the time on the website was incorrect. When is a good time to show up?
The 3pm is accurate. I plan on being totally finished by 7pm though. I think the website says 9pm. Im figuring presention lasting at most until 5pm, but probably sooner. Then the raffle for an hour or two. Just too many factors like people being late, how many pieces of coral people bring to donate, how many people want to help out, etc.

OK, I probably won't make it then. I gotta be home by 6PM at the lastest.
How far from there are you? Ideally I wouldn't mind being totally done by 6pm. I will say that the last time that we did it it took us a total of 3 hours. I do plan on pre-fragging most of the coral. No one needs to watch me cut up the dozen colonies of Torches, Frogspawns and Hammers one or two intact colonies for demonstration is fine. That combined with us doing it in a residential yard/patio makes me want to keep it as short as possible but still educational. I wouldn't be surprised if we were dine by 5pm, but need to alot enough time to allow for variables.

Would anyone be interested in a spotted hawk fish? He is currently hanging out in my sump and would like a new display tank. I will only bring if someone wants him. FREE - but wouldn’t say not to a frag!!

Ideally I would like to be home by 6P at the latest and I'm coming back to Industry(past Beaver).

I have 2 hunks of bonsai and should be able to get 4-5 frags. I also have a blue chalice that needs trimmed and can get a bunch of frags off and still leave me a nice piece.

I think I talked my wife into taking the kids to give me time to come to this. It's an hour drive from Bethel Park so we'll see. Hopefully see you there.

Looks like the weather is going to be perfect to be able to do this outside on my patio Sunday. I have my 40 cube (hosptital tank) re-setup with new water,skimmer, wave pump and air stone. Also have 25 gallons of new saltwater made up in my mixing station with a pump in that to keep it moving. WIll also have 20 gallons of RODI in case we run out of saltwater. So we should have plenty of good fresh salt water to keep corals/frags healthy during and after the workshop.

I'm coming from Scott Township and I will have to go to Zelienople before and probably after. Our membership guy lives 20 minutes south of Washington in Mariana. Our Secretary is down in Venitia. Our VP Is down in Elizabeth. Our raffle guy is in West Virginia. It will be more than worth the drive. I look forward to seeing you there.
