September Meet and Greet at Molokos

Recommended Posts

What do we have for September gatherings you ask? Well, it has been a while since we made it up to North Mississippi  to visit our friends at Moloko's so we decided to have a casual meet and greet at this sponsors awesome reef themed pub. If you have not been there you are missing out on a very unique establishment. This will be a perfect mingling opportunity prior to next months upcoming big Frag Fest event. We can chill out, relax, and talk salt or just get to know each other more... A far cry from the hustle and bustle of the Expos.

 Being a meet and greet situation I think it would make sense to get a frag swap going on, I know many of us have some corals to trim and being two weeks away it makes for an ideal heal time on any of those fresh cuts. And since the shindig doesn't start until 4 it will give us a chance to shop at some of the Portland area saltwater stores prior, so bring a small cooler.

The address is-- 3967 N Mississippi Ave, Portland, OR 97227

Starts at 4:00PM until 6:00PM or whenever you want to go home on Saturday the 29th, they have a full service bar as well as some nice panini sandwiches amongst other edibles to choose from.

Ah. I just saw there's another post about the swap!

Anyway. We're stoked to be having all our aquarium friends coming over! We also have classic Nintendo & Super Nintendo available for your enjoyment, which might be a new addition since your last visit. It's a real game-changer. :)

See you Saturday!

Believe it or not, that awful pun about the Nintendo being a "game-changer" was totally unintentional.

Those are always the best!  Bummed that I will miss this one since we will be out of town.  Always love stopping in to check on the tanks when we are down on Mississippi but have never seen the basement setup that runs it all.

Yikes!!! The meeting is in less than 24 hours! I gotta get my coolers, bags, and rubberbands together to pack up some corals in the morning, gotta leave Corvallis before noon to make all the stops and meetings in Portland, it will be worth it though. Molokos with the right friends makes for a great night, see you all there.

Sorry I will miss you Bert - would have enjoyed hanging out and talking some shop with everyone.

It was great to see all of you who showed up for this meet and greet, it was a nice time. I have never been to Moloko's so this was a kewl place to hang out and just relax for a bit. Thank you Christian for opening your bar for us to have our meeting! Thanks again to all of those that made this meeting happen and all those involved your efforts don't go unnoticed thank you 😊

I was laughing to myself about what non-aquarists who came into the bar must have been thinking as you guys were trading and/or buying bags of white powder. 😂

And just to set the record straight they were not small bags either, they were 1 pound bags.  But they were clearly marked with potassium chloride 😂

      It is time again to mark the 2020 calendar, we will be having a PNWMAS club meeting at the new Premium Aquarium store at the end of the month!

       Not too long ago the TPA made a transition into a new building in south Salem that seems to be a great fit for their establishment, nice open spaces and rows and rows of coral and fish tanks, not to mention a wide selection of dry goods.

      As usual the club will provide some food and beverages for those who attend as well as a raffle to partake in. I am also getting some confirmation on  a coral group buy in for a nice colony or two brought in by the TPA. Once we have more details on that we will post them up here so just stay tuned.
      When - Saturday February 29th 1:PM
      Where - The Premium Aquarium 4071 Liberty Rd S, Salem, Oregon 97302
      What - Sales, Raffles, Food, Friends, and a coral group buy.

      Well folks, it is getting closer to the end of the 2019 year and you know what that means for the PNWMAS club don't you!?
      The December Holiday Party!!!
      Where - Walery's Premium Pizza 1555 Edgewater St NW, Salem, OR 97304
      When - December 14th Saturday from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM. 
      What - Meet and Greet, Gift Exchange, Raffle, Food, and Fun!
      As usual, the club will order a few pizzas and pitchers to get the festivities started off with, but with the counter to the pizzeria just 15 feet away you should be able to get whatever you need conveniently. Being a pizza fan I like finding what a friend likes and going in on a pizza to share, variety is the spice of life right?
      And for those who are new to the annual event know that we will have a White elephant gift exchange to get in on! To participate we recommend bringing a wrapped item someone might appreciate of a $10-$15 value. We will draw numbers to dictate the order of handing out the gifts, and allow for one optional "theft" of a previous opened present per person. If you have not participated in a white elephant gift exchange before, this may all sound funny, but I assure you it is a riot of a game where everybody has a good time and walks away with something to remember.
      In addition to the gift exchange and all around festivities we will have some amazing prizes from our awesome sponsors and our PNWMAS club, you know we never disappoint. So make sure to grab some extra raffle tickets and win it big!
      Stay tuned for more updates and additions to the raffle prize roster, you all know the PNWMAS December party is always a Hoot!

      For our August meeting, we’re doing something a little different.  @SuncrestReef, our resident Apex guru and newest board member, is opening up his house for a tour of his highly automated reef tank and a backyard BBQ.
      This will be chance to see some cool high-tech gear in action:  Automated water changes, automated skimmer neck cleaner and smart skimmate locker, emergency backup battery power and generator, and of course the Trident!  As an added bonus, @danlu_gt will present a demo of his amazing ReeFi DUO LED light fixtures, with a side-by-side comparison against SuncrestReef’s Radion XR30 Pro.
      As always there will be some cool raffle prizes, and tasty food.
      When:  Saturday, August 24 at 1:00pm - 4:00pm
      Where:  19194 SW Suncrest Lane, Beaverton, OR 97007     View on map
      Parking:  Driveway and on-street parking

      There’s only one rule:  Cooper, the overly-friendly black lab, is on a very strict diet due to food allergies.  Please don’t feed Cooper anything, no matter how much he acts like he’s starving.  He’s had enough emergency vet visits and doesn’t need another one.

      Where does the time go? It is February already, and that means there is another upcoming PNWMAS meet. This time we have something special for you, our comedic and ingenuitive member PDXMonkeyboy has been gracious enough to host a full blown frag swap at his home in Portland Oregon! In addition to the free for all coral exchanging we will have a tank onsite to float frags and a coral sale to benefit the Tanks For Teachers program.
      This means there will be corals of all sorts, from all over, at one place! for trade, for sale, and even maybe just for free if you get that winning raffle ticket. This also means you all might want to get ready for the event by seeing what you may have to offer up and what you may be looking for to fill that empty spot in your home aquarium. I will post up one of those ever so popular Frag Trading threads here
      http://www.pnwmas.org/forums/topic/44400-frag-swap-thread-february-2019/
      so we can keep this thread to our regular banter and various updates as they come through.
      When- February 24th 1:00 PM.
      Where-
      Parking:  There is a long looping driveway and a parking area next to the house.  You can park in the street or anywhere in the driveway.  There will likely just be shuffling when its time to go.
      Our PNWMAS club will provide some refreshments and some delectable local pizza for those who attend.  

      So get those frag racks out and filled up then stay tuned, this is gonna be a good one!
