I thought I would start.  Mark Peterson made a great request.  Lets see if we could use some of our money a ask GARF for a tour of their facility.  I for one would bring along extra for gas, frags, etc...  What do you say.  Adam can you give them a call?

I have said it in other threads but I'll say it here as well - Yes please!  I would love to take a trip up there.

In the past the club/members were going to carpool up to GARF.  However, last I heard they had halted all tours, even those for the express purpose of purchasing.  I for one would like to go, but don't know that the folks at GARF are willing to ablige.  I visited there about 3 years ago, and yes they have some fantastic tanks.  And one or two not so fantastic.  However, the interesting/beautiful tanks far outnumbered the poor ones.

Also note that the Idaho Reef Club (www.idahoreefs.org) is doing a Reef Tour on April 19th, with raffles and the whole nine yards.  I don't know if GARF will be on that tour since I haven't seen their poster yet.  Later....

Me too.  Last year just standing on their porch, I felt like I was walking on holy ground. 
Keep your hands and arms inside the tank and enjoy the ride!

Tell you what.  I will call Sally Jo tomorrow.  I for one am in support of a trip to Boise, even if it is just for their Reef Tour.  But I will do my best to work out something for a GARF visit.  Some of us are too involved in this hobby.... or lifestyle..... or occupation..... or whatever this is to me.
