Hi everyone, I hope you made it to FS 2016 yesterday.
IN the past I thought there had been some threads on
I also thought there had been some threads on feedback to help it continue to be a
really cool, productive gathering of reef enthusiansts.
I really haven't seen anything yet, so I'd thought I'd start one- MOds- you have my permission
to remove this thread if you feel it's not appropriate, etc. It's meant to be a positive productive thread.
Forgot what it's called, encrusting...
And a green candy cane- I had grown these neon green CC's for over 5 years, trading and giving many away.
Now I have a starter frag to grow it again!
- These came from Dan and Dons table- thanks guys- was great to see you again too.
And another flat valve so my my newest sump for the FT/QT now has it's own auto DIY ATO.
As far as feedback- FS is and always has been a well run, great event.
Now without criticizing anyone-
I heard from a few people, how little if any info/promotion was available b/f the event.
I mentioned it and was referred to the FB page, etc.
I have heard in the past that this is not a WRS event, or something like that- but it could still
be pushed a bit better on the WRS website, w/o damaging the Space/Time continuum.
The only thread I really saw about it was the volunteer/WRS table- Which I was happy to have volunteered some time.
AND- believe it or not- one person I was talking to OUTSIDE over a beer, a new member with
a lot of great ideas and excellent addition to the Group, with a really nice build thread-
mentioned how it would be nice to have some nametags to to write your name and screen name on-
IF you wanted to.
When I brought this up before- it got way blown out of proportion, and ended in
the Members getting their own laminated nametag, in a holder, etc.
Great for members I guess- but what about non memeber newbies trying to
get to know others- and only know a screen name.
* As a tangent- I heard from at least a few peeps yesterday how
I was the first 'reefer' they met/communicated with, etc. when they started.
(I know- poor people having met me
I now think I remember that someone thought it was a good idea to have
the generic/sticky/one day only name tags like so many conventions/events have;
So IF YOU CARE TO- you can write your first name and your WRX screen Name -
IF YOU WANTED TO- so that people using the WRS site- whether true members or site users
could put a face with a screen name- start up conversations, exchange info if they desired etc.
I also think I now remember that someone said- OK Todd
get the sticky name tags and a few Felt tip markers/colors next time for those that want to
Sorry, I forgot and dropped the ball on that one then.
Again, well run, well organized as always!!
A big thanks to everyone who makes it happen
Despite what I have mentioned, I didn't hear any negative feedback about the event, vendors, etc.
Looked like everyone had a good time!
