Seachem tour

Any news if the club is planning another seachem tour or if they do any tours at their facility?

I'm not completely sure. But, we can certainly try and work something out with them. Our monthly meeting schedule is set for the rest of the year so we can see if we can get rolling on a date in January or February.

I highly recommend this. I've been to Seachem a few times. I am Seachem Platinum Certified, I took their course back in 2008, I think. Spent 2 days of intensive classroom time and a tour.

The Club went there too, sometime after that, but I don't quite recall when. Jim and Doug are amazing hosts, and it's a nice facility and it's really neat to see where it all happens.

I'd definitely be down for another trip out to Madison

^^^^^ +1 on what Jenn stated above. My daughter and I was part of the ARC crew that went on the tour about 3 years ago. I became a Fan after the tour; Seachem has a very special place. There are salt and fresh water tanks in all of the offices and in other areas as well. Very knowledgeable people whom are "focused" on providing the best products lines to all of their customers. I have to admit that after my visit; I have recommended Seachem products to others since my visit.

I believe ARC will have to set it up for a limited amount of folks; since the conference room has limited space. Maybe set up a couple tours at different times of the day. If you get a chance to visit Seachem; I highly recommend going if you can. You could always stop off at the Pizza place in Madison on the way back home. Great pizza and beer if that is your interests.

^^^^^ +1 on "great suggestion". If this is finalized for early next year; you'll want to put this on your calendar of "things to do". Sign up early because there probably will be a limited amount of seats. A great company is my perspective; focused on providing the best products available.

SeaChem is looking over their January schedule. It looks like we'll be able to make it happen.

You don't want to miss this one!!

Stop by in Madison for some pizza on the way home. That's what we did the last time ARC went to Seachem some years ago.

Allright we are all setup for a tour of their facility on Friday, January 20th at 1:30 PM. Unfortunately, they are closed during the weekend. I figured a Friday afternoon would be the easiest for those who can take off work early and can make it.

Can't wait! I'll take a 1/2 day off so see their operation. I've used their stuff for years but have never been on the tour.
