    Hi,

    i have been thinking of the following:
    Setting up a regular Jhb and Pta meetup for MASA users, before i get GMAA etc etc
    this is a monthly club meeting for all to discuss current threads etc locally and all things related to MASA not GMAA

    i am looking for a local kid friendly pizzeria etc where we can meet once a month etc
    I can use my local complex clubhouse and get take out pizza's and coolies, then everyone would chip in R50 and we can have a good 3hr meeting.

    Kind of a last wed night of the month. i am very keen to get this moving and have some nice ideas and sponsors waiting... also maybe like a frag fest they have in USA etc

    let me know

    Count me in!

    2 good places.

    Dros in randburg / jolly roger in parkhurst.

    I think for the PTA guys we do something in centurion. makes it in the middle of both.

    I will never eat at a cape town fish market again. I think the complex idea at a club house is cool.

    Yeah the mid week thing is awesome, weekends get too hectic too quickly. The only thing missing from the meet will be a tank, but I know I can't host 30 peeps in my little shoe box so a neutral venue is perfect.

    its more that about looking at tanks, its about meeting reefers so when !@#$% hits the fan or need a tank minder etc everyone knows each other

    and its a good excuse to chat fish etc
