I know there is SFBAAPS, a legit site, group, club. I have talked to member OVT, and we talked about starting a little group out here in the East East Bay, basically east of the Caldecott Tunnel. I am thinking Orinda to Antioch areas. Anyone outside of that area is welcome, we just were talking and we don't have the time to travel to the South Bay, SF, and the like. I just want to start something more localized and OVT is on board.

If you are interested, please PM me with your full name, email, and phone.

We want a group that just likes to have fun. I am hesitant to put this out but I am thinking 21 and up, at least 18 and up. I don't want to disclude anyone but, as of now, we would have meet ups at my home or OVT's home and just want to feel comfortable with out guests.

Please let me know if you are interested. Rather than a club, I am thinking of a "meet up group", nothing formal, you just show up if you want to. Let me know.

My goal is a group that loves what we do, have a place to hang out, exchange some plants and get rid of old equipment we know someone else needs (free or fee on that).

The age is mostly to make some of our activities semi-legal. The highlight of the meets is chugging vodka from my high-clarity Finnex 4g. If you expect tank fishing, a valid CA fishing license is required and I do enforce size limits. If you plan to play with the dog, up-to-date rabies vacination is checked at the door.

Haha, you said it well. I think we are going for the hang out spot more than the educational open house. It's not that I want the wildest aquatic plant group in the nation, I just don't mind if we do:icon_evil:).

Really though, I just want some chill people to congregate, share ideas, and get outside the net.

We already have one interested customer who will remain nameless unless he would like to chime in. Unfortunately we don't charge anything.

That must have been an oversight...

$40 charge per year for anyone who owns a dog larger than a 6ft1in, semi fat adult male.

Happy?

I'm not in the East East bay but I've driven to OVT's place and its only about a half an hour drive from Livermore so count me in!

I joined just so I can be part of this

talontsiawd 09-10-2013 04:44 PM

Looks like we are getting some interest. I have told a few, I want to get something going soon but it will be at least 2 weekends from today. If OVT is hosting, I should probably run that by him. Again, please PM or email me your full name, email address and phone number.

For everyone out of the area who is interested, that is no problem. We probably want to make our meet ups to stay around this area, I don't mind going out of my way every now and them but many people I have talked always say they wish they had something closer so that's why I am thinking this area for now. That may change over time.

I'm in when this gets started!

caliherp 09-14-2013 04:05 PM

I would be down to join. Im close enough(Livermore). Ill donate the first bottle of vodka to the cause. I'm new to planted tanks, but I have plenty of terrestrial and epithetic plants I can give away/trade.

Regards, Patrick

I like this idea!

s3rca 09-14-2013 11:47 PM

I'm in the Tracy area (Lathrop) but consider me in.

I'm a member of SFBAAPS but some of those meets are a little too far for me.

So, I am sorry I haven't been on top of this. Just got married this weekend, leaving town tomorrow. After Thursday I can get on top of things. I will contact OVT and see if his spot is when his availability is. We can do my house as well but OVT's spot is much more interesting. I am hoping we all can get together sooner than later. I will update this as I get more together.

talontsiawd 09-21-2013 07:15 PM

Curious what people's availability is next weekend. I haven't talked to OVT to see if his house is open but if there is enough interest, I can do my house. I don't have much going on tank wise right now so my spot isn't the most interesting. I will be out of town again 2 weekends from now so I won't be around then. Just want to get this started.

I'm working the Giants game next Sunday but I can be available Sunday evening. Saturday works for me though.
