    I wonder whether the Vietnamese will put in another strong performance. The Polish may well be the top guys from outside the Orient. Still, if my World Cup predictions are anything to go by.... Dave.

    Hallowe’en UKAPS Meeting

    I am about to invest in some pretty spooky clobber. Is everybody else going to dress up, as I don`t want to look a clown all on my lonesome? Dave.

    Hallowe’en UKAPS Meeting

    Congratualtions, Sam and Biz. :clap: This is going to be very adjacent to my house move, but will still give it my all to be there and make sure the red wine doesn`t have a chance to go off. My 240l should have been taken down by then, so I may have some plants to bring along, all being well...

    UKaps BBQ 2009

    I`m off to sunny Spain for the weekend, so have a great time guys and gals. I fully expect to come back to stories of a thorough debagging for Dan. :lol: Tonser, sorry mate. Neither Stu nor Graeme are going to the BBQ, so I won`t be able to get that lens to you. Dave.

    UKaps BBQ 2009

    I hear you serve beer in plastic pint pots, and I insist on glass. :lol: Unfortunately, I have to take my camera on holiday that weekend, otherwise I would get trousered and make a complete idiot of myself. Have fun guys. Dave.

    The UKAPS FoF Photo Thread

    :lol: That`s a quality name, John. I remember my former station manager who had a stutter. We called him Mickey two times. Dave.

    Visiting The Green Machine.

    Just a little update. The shop opens at 10:00, which is when I intend on getting there. There will be light refreshments, plus a little booze for non drivers and an aquascaping tutorial using a 120cm tank. I reckon there will be enough meeting, greeting and general chat to make a whole day of...

    Regarding what time to get there, I`ll have a word with jim, but the sooner the earlier is my guess. Secondly, I would like to get an idea of how many are coming from UKAPS. So far, I have: Me George Graeme Dan + `er indoors Sam Tom Lisa Chrisi Garuf TDI Wilson Peter6bee John Starkey Let me...

    Visiting The Green Machine.

    He is a local artist, apparently. Iam hoping to get a look at his stuff some time, but he seems to shun the publicity of a forum a bit. It will be interesting to see how good he is. Dave.

    Jim is workoing towards the 5th April, so I would say that this is the date everyone plans for. Hope you can make it, Bob. Dave.

    The 5th is good for me, too. The girlfriend reckons she could put up one or two people. Dave.

    Visiting The Green Machine.

    I have opened this thread so that the one in the plants forum doesn`t become too bogged down. I have a few ideas going around my head, which I have proposed to Jim. He seems quite keen on something along the lines of a practical demo on setting up a planted tank. We should be able to rustle up...

    I suppose I ought to go, seeing as I started the thread :lol:......work permitting, of course. Dave.

    Alcohol Tasting in NW England and N Wales.

    tgc has just mentioned possibly meeting at The Blue Planet on another thread, which sounds like a great idea, and I can`t imagine why I never thought of suggesting it. Anybody up for this, with a possible drink after? Dave.

    BBQ at Sam's

    It was me, and you are out of your league, Sam. Apparently, short, fat and balding is the new look. Dave.

    BBQ at Sam's

    It was great to meet you all for the first time and rub shoulders with the greats of the UK aquatic plant scene. :roll: It was an excellent day, and freebies are always welcome. Anyway, here are some piccies, untouched by Photoshop. Substrate was a layer of Tropica, followed by Unipac black...

    BBQ at Sam's

    Shouldn`t we make some kind of thank you gesture for Sam`s missus for putting up with us? A bunch of flowers, chewing tobacco......whatever she would prefer. :lol: Dave.

    BBQ at Sam's

    Sounds like a good meeting place to me. I can bring along a ton of rocks of all sizes from a local quarry, if anyone is interested. I will also bring something that may be of interest to the photographers among us. As for sleeping over, I don`t mind kipping on the floor, provided there are...

    BBQ at Sam's

    Make sure he does it before he gets trousered. Come to think of it, the room will be filled with drunken experts....you could end up with a real monstrosity. :lol: Dave. P.S. Has the boat sailed on my lap dancer yet?

    BBQ at Sam's

    I`ve got a few CO2 freebies to give away/swap....needle valves, connectors etc. Dave.

    PMd you Sam, but I don`t think my control panel works. I am definitely interested. Dave.

    SUPREME FESTIVAL OF FISHKEEPING

    Of course, I got the dates wrong and am typing this from work. I was a bit dubious about the journey, but it looks like it would have been worthwhile. Dan`s backdrop is excellent! Well done chaps. Dave.

    SUPREME FESTIVAL OF FISHKEEPING

    Sounds awesome George, and I would love to be able to get there. I don`t know if you have all the hardscape you require, but below are some pics of rocks I collected recently, that still need a little clean up. As a sense of scale, the Iwagumi is a 60cm tank. The above pic was a little...

    Alcohol Tasting in NW England and N Wales.

    Thanks for the interest guys. Sam, I was just thinking of an evening socialising, if you are still up for it. All we really need now is a little interest from people that actually live around here. :lol: Dave.

    It would be great to see you both there. Thanks for the interest chaps. Just need a few more replies from the local yokels to get things rolling. Dave.

    Alcohol Tasting in NW England and N Wales.

    Anybody in this area of the world feel like getting together some time for a chat. Some of us are keen on photography as well, so there should be plenty to talk about. We could also bring along various bits and bobs for swapping. What do you think? Dave.
