I am off to a "Potluck" with Tom Barr and the GSAS crowd in just a few minutes. Tom is speaking at GSAS on Tuesday night; I am betting Standing Room Only!

I'm looking forward to it! Thanks for the reminder to get there early, I'm almost always about 15 minutes late and have been sorry.

GSAS had a great Potluck with Tom Barr last night! We feasted on wild salmon, chicken, meatballs, side dishes, and homemade pies. Tom shared some of his views on substrates, CO2 levels, and lighting limited planted aquariums during a question and answer period.

I am really looking forward to learning more at the presentation on Tuesday night...TWO DAYS AND COUNTING!

Hi Chasintrades,

You are absolutely welcome to join us! Did you find the information on the GSAS website as to where we meet on the Seattle Pacific University campus? (It is a few miles north of the Downtown core.)

Also, relatively close to downtown is "The Fish Store" on Roosevelt if you are looking for a LFS to visit, there are also a couple in the area of the airport.

Oh, and can I give away plants at the mini-auction? Not like sell them but give them to GSAS as a donation?
