    potluck tank charity / community service

    I was posting in the potluck thread and got an idea. I was wondering if as a community, maybe in conjunction with a willing vendor or two, find some worthy causes -schools, youth programs, old folk homes, shelters whatever to maybe have a club event (maybe even in the location) and set up a 'potluck' tank. We all bring some stuff, work up a tank, give them instructions - maybe even set up a forum thread where they can ask questions.

    There are a lot worthy causes and there is a lot of skill here.

    We've done this for store displays in the past.

    Regardless of location, the challenge is maintenance...

    I imagine so that's why I wondered if a forum support category where we can walk them through what they have to do, but they'd have to take ownership. It might be possible to teach someone the basics, leave them a checklist, then tell them to join a specific SCAPE support forumif needed would be enough if some care was taken in selecting candidates for the tank. Anyway, just an idea not sure how practical it is or isn't.

    I mean there was this guy on reddit who had to evacuate due to the fires and his temp dropped. His ram died and so did the rest of his tank. I'm giving him some free peppered cories in the future when he gets his power back up and stuff. If you want to donate anything to that cause you can bring it to the next meet and I'll make sure it gets to him. https://imgur.com/gallery/H09GSM5
