I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who participated in Reef Tour this year. 

I love this event, people open their homes and share their passion with the public.  I have been a tour host twice now and I know how much work you hosts put in, so really appreciate everything you did and the time you gave to share your homes and tanks with us.  Big thanks from myself and the rest of the presidency and club.  I loved hearing stories about having people come in without tanks but an interest in the hobby and saw the sign.  I met one family that didn't have a tank but wanted to go out and check it out.  Great to see that, you hosts may have brought someone into the hobby today :D

Thanks to the tour goers, many of you went great distances today. 

Thanks to Camille and Bob for your help on organizing, this is a big job to pull off and your help went a long way in making this a successful event. 

What I am curious is what did you learn today?  Anything you saw that you want to try or add to your tank?

For us my wife wanted the big hairy mushrooms (bigger ones) that we saw in about 5 tanks.

Duncans - I want a large duncan colony again.

Angels - I miss my Angels and want more!

Durso drain, Jeff reviewed that with us.

Passion!  Loved seeing the passion everyone had for this hobby we love!

Thanks again!

Anthias school was awesome.  Tiny Chevron Tang.  Super White Sand.  Dion's stands.  Peaceful inhabitants.  Acros out of the water.  Big Wrasse.

Stop 8 - Fred Nessen - untaimed6

Stop 9 - Geoff Sorensen - 1stupidpunk

Stop 10 - Jeff Stephenson - Krazie4Acans

First time my wife and I were able to do all Reef Tour stops, even then we ran over time and were thankful for Geoff and Jeff allowing us to visit past the tour time.  Was awesome to share this feat with Bob as well.

 I do know David and Theresa White made it to at least 7 stops as well (as we ran into them in a few places). 

I would love to see more photos - please post them here!

Thanks Jon for all the awesome pics!

Then as it was, then again it will be
An' though the course may change sometimes
Rivers always reach the sea
