Meetings / GWAPA December 2005

Many of us felt the need to get together and recharge batteries for another 12 months or so before another AGA Convention. It was a pleasure to re-visit my good friend's house - Ghazanfar Ghori. I would like to thank him and his wife for hospitality and GWAPA for organizing another great get-together.

GWAPA broke attendance record at the December 2005 meeting. Ghazanfar graciously opened his home to some 30+ people, wowing all of them with his hospitality (and his tanks!). New BOD was officially announced: Aaron Talbot, president, Nathan Freedenberg, vice-president, Sean Murphy, treasurer, Cristy Keister, corresponding secretary, and Aaron Parker, recording secretary.

We also heard from new LFS store owner, Andrew Blumhagen, about the upcoming opening of his store Scales in Silver Spring, MD. GWAPA hopes to aquascape two 46G tanks in his shop.

Following business related topics, Ghazanfar gave a brief talk describing plumbing and problems/solutions he encountered during metal halide setup.

Meeting ended with HUGE auction !
