Looking To Organize Salem/Mid-Valley/Eugene "Meet and Greets"

Recommended Posts

Back in January, I brought to the club the idea of a "Meet and Greet" for members and participants of PNWMAS to join together as hobbyists and get to know one another once a month.

 

One of the things that I hope to accomplish in doing this is to get a good sense of the hobby myself as I am new; and bring new participants into our club. I would like to open this interest back up as I have received a very positive interest from so many; and I am still being contacted with great interest. Our PNWMAS VP Mr. John Manrow, (JManrow) is currently conducting a “Meet and Greet” in the Tigard Area; and is leading the way for the northern area of the state. I live near Corvallis; therefore I would like to get as many participants in other areas together that are willing to attend.

 

With the price of gas these days it makes it hard to be actively involved in our club. So I would like to invite you to get to know club participants in your area that you have never met; or this could be a time to hang out with a few old saltwater hobbyist friends.

 

I am mainly looking for places that we could fit a group into; so please keep that in mind.

I believe that I-5 friendly locations would be best and it could be anyplace that would spark your interest. If you would like to become more involved or meet saltwater friendly people, please contact me via PM with your interests and idea of locations so that I might contact them.

 

I look forward to your ideas; and remember, this "can be" a family event as children are welcome.

 

Thank you in advance for your interest,

 

Kevin

This sounds like a great idea. I'm just starting/finishing my first major tank project and have a friend that's even newer than I am to the hobby. It'd be great to meet a few more people that aren't trying to sell me stuff and know what they are talking about (no offense to the fish stores I frequent, but I tend to hear 3 different theories every time I learn something new).

Welcome neighbor, yes, we are planning our next local "MEET and GREET" in our area, place and location will be announced this weekend after meeting with a few of our PNWMAS Board Members. We are looking at next weekend so gather your friends in the mean time.

 

In the past we have met on a Sunday morning at a local resturant for brunch that last about 2 hours or so. Last time we met at Elmer's Resturant near Albertsons in Albany. We could meet there again, or another place that is clean and tasty.

 

We have had people come from Salem and Corvallis and it was a nice time bragging about our tanks. I would like to do this again, and this time focus on how to build a stronger club for our hobby.

 

I am here to support our local members and to offer help with your tank when needed. It is my mission to build this club to be strong locally as well as for anyone that is willing to participate in our club as a whole.

 

Thanks

 

Kevin
