badxgillen posted a topic in Meetings and EventsThe April 2016 meeting as you may know was a behind the scenes tour collaborated by the PNWMAS, MHSC, and the Oregon Coast Aquarium. Large portions of these facilities were closed off exclusively for our team to get the most out of our visit and giving us the VIP treatment. All the amazing animals, impressive machines & equipment, made for some incredible setups. I was impressed on a number of occasions at each stop of our tour.But first I should back up some as we all had to meet up at the coast on one of the most beautiful days we could have chosen. When we arrived at the initial destination we were greeted by some familiar smiling faces, everyone seemed happy to see each other. JMan and Flashy Fins beat us to Hatfield but as long as we were not late for the tour I didn't mind. Kireek and Eclipse were along for the tour and looking back at this picture I must admit the first hour there was a little cold form the wind but that subsided rather quickly and gave way to shirt and shorts weather. Reefing Madness and Dominique made the trip and were some good company, good to see you there. There was enough of a crowd that we had to take tours in separate groups on one occasion, at first I was not too sure about how they would pull it off but they had another person at each facility to accommodate the extra number of people. Leading the tour of the first two facilities was our good friend Sid, IntoTheMystic. He is a specialist of many things in the Marine Biology field and it was a privilege to have him spearheading the tours. I am sure Tim Morgan is proud to have you on board and on his team, you do a wonderful job . Thank You Sid.
