    Photography for sure! But honestly, I'd love to hear anything that anyone has to offer.

    For me it doesnt matter what is the topic about, we always can learn something new, but what about if for the next meeting the speaker uses a microphone? In that way everybody could hear....

    I was thinking it would be interesting to have a SCAPING contest during part of the meeting. Possibly have different plants donated for the contest and 5 or so small tanks (five or ten gallon) for the contestants or teams to use. Something similar to the "Iron Chef" tv show. Give like a 30 minute time limit. I think it would be beneficial for some of those new to the hobby to see some of our seasoned SCAPER's in action. It's a funny hobby when a club has a meeting and the actual hobby isn't taking place. Just my .02

    Great idea Dan, but this would have to be a stand alone event/contest/new sport as it would cut too much into our meeting to allow both to coexists.

    Definitely something to plant in the future though.

    Good ideas and comments from everyone so far, keep them coming

    At the moment it looks like the topic will be photography and the SCAPE Demo/Speaker Liaison (DSL) is contacting a potential speaker. We will update on developments as they happen.

    Let's see what the speaker want's to do and go from there. If there are levels/points not covered then for sure we can have future speakers cover them.

    ummm...You're thinking P n' S (point and shoot) vs. (D)SLR ([digital] single lens reflex).

    Pretty sure all common cameras have lenses nowadays.

    Glass blowing 101 =D Lily pipes are way expensive!

    Diy group projects - Co2 setups, reactors. Pre-made packaged set of materials members will buy ie. pvc, hoses, tubes, connectors, silicone, etc. And at the meeting we'll all put it together.

    I like the DIY group project idea. Sounds like fun.

    This is interesting if we have a qualified volunteer and it fits the meeting criteria (enough interest and safety...).

    Diy group projects - Co2 setups, reactors. Pre-made packaged set of materials members will buy ie. pvc, hoses, tubes, connectors, silicone, etc. And at the meeting we'll all put it together.
    John Ciotti did a great job with his presentation on this subject at the January meeting. Since this is such a big part of our hobby we can always do it again and mix it up (different speakers/components)

    If we have another meet at my house, I can do a demo on setting up a 2x2 10 gallon rack. I'll provide materials... But I'll keep it as well...
