When is the next ARC monthly meeting?

Anyone have any knowledge of when the next ARC meeting? Date? Place? It's been a few months without an ARC meeting and I'm now having withdrawal symptoms? I need a fix quickly!

Any way of having a demo on drilling a bottom 40 gallon breeder tank? Then a follow up within the same ARC meeting with attaching an internal overflow to the 40 gallon breeder tank. What other ideas are being discussed for the fall ARC meetings?

Anxiously awaiting for more info please!

It's a piece of cake. If I had the tank and a bit I would do it. Need lots of running water though so location would be key.

I could supply the pail of water as long as you don't call me Jack or Jill . Don't forget the followup on attaching the overflow setup. Of course, the 4 holes will be drilled in the bottom of the tank. We could have Pico as The Main Speaker if he is available to get off work.

I could offer a second tank to be drilled. How about you have your tank drilled on the backside; while I'll have my tank drilled on the bottom side? Then, someone will demonstrate how to attach the overflow kits for the two different types of drilled tanks. How does that sound?

as long as the glass isn't tempered, the hardest part of drilling tanks is that first time you make contact with the glass. If you have some plumbers putty you don't even need a bunch of running water. Just remember not to put pressure on the tank and just let the drill do the work.

The next ARC meeting is gonna be stellar?

I've seen a couple of posts asking about when the next ARC meeting will happen to include this post. We haven't seen no replies from the crew yet. They (the crew) must be planning an out of this world event; maybe a round trip to the moon and back.

It's gonna be great because all of the anticipation up to now for information on the next ARC meeting. It's certainty gonna be a Stellar event.

Holding on,

Wannabee
