So the marine hobbyist meeting that was held in Corvallis went rather well.A few people were unable to attend and the meet was of short notice but there was still a number of poeple who attended myself included...It was my house after all cheers
We had a 40 Gallon breeder tank I filled up with salt,added a hang on filter,one of my favorite maxi jets for circulation,and then hung some LEDs up,it made a half way decent holding tank for the corals.

At first there was just a few people and there coral companions.

then some more people showed up,and some more frags.

And by the time the last of the folks showed up the 40 breeder was getting a little crowded monkey

If everyone showed It would have been wild.

I know I got at least 3 NEW corals form the trades.I gotta snap some pics here soon.It was also good getting to see
the faces to the screen names...
badxgillen,badguitarist,hamstern,shutterfish,invertsrock,beasilybub,mischiefmorgan,kelicruz,"ricordea"Vince,Higa, were all there, I had to trade for redskull,auscase,firegouramiman11, and lisa as they could not attend Sad maybe next time.
It was really nice of inverts rock and lisa to donate some frags for the beginner hobbyists that did not make it as well.
Some nice green stars,mushrooms,and tons of lobo soft coral to get to there tanks,I mean you gotta start some where and test the waters.
Thanks to everyone who made it and sparked the social flare.

Ah yes the coral meeting I think went great. Despite the fact most of my coral frags up for trading was commonly orange monticap, a little galaxea, a bit of green catus coral and some zoas. Yet I still walked away with lots of blue digitata, a fragment of a nice blue chalice, 3 new rhodactus shrooms, one green shroom, a lobo, purple monticap, birds nest, and purple cactus coral, along with more coral. I don't mean to brag, but I am trying to get my point across that even with my crappy selection I walked away with quite a bit! This meeting also benefited everyone else, who all had a wealth of new acans and brain corals. As Badxgillen said it was nice to meet the faces behind the screennames on this forum. I have to thank everyone who came for making to meeting bigger and better.

Thanks.....
mischiefmorgan and Vince for the Green Rhodactus and Discosoma
shutterfish for the digitata and purple cactus coral
beaslybub for the acropora, birdsnest, encrusting coral, and chalice
badguitarist for the 2 fuzzy shrooms, and purple monticap
invertsrock for the lobo
Badxgiilen for hosting the meeting at his house and serving lots of good food

I can't wait for the next meeting....next time I hope to have better corals like digitatas and better monticaps
