Cheers, all

Update! By popular demand, we have changed the deal to Reef Crystals. The price will be $45.00 for the 200 gallon case.

Elmer's Aquarium has offered PMASI a discounted price on Instant Ocean sea salt. We (PMASI admins) are appreciative and looking forward to more special offers from Elmer's and other supporters.

The deal is a 200 gall box (four 50gall bag mixes) for 39.99. We will be pooling our orders until we can make a single pickup (Elmer's will be ordering a pallet specially for us...it can arrive any given Wednesday with notice by the previous Monday morning).

We expect to do this in the coming weeks (at least one meeting announcement, next Saturday when Mark Vera comes to present to our club). Look for an announcement the following week in this thread for arrival of the group order (tentatively the beginning of March).

Several PMASI members (myself included) are looking for larger quantities...there is no limit here. Please just post with your requested qty and look for an email contact from us with details.

kindly, Anth-

was there a decision as to what kind of salt will be available for the group buy? IO or reef crystals?

Hi all,

I spoke with Anne at Elmer's yesterday and by popular demand, we are modifying the offer to be for Reef Crystals. The price will be $45.00 for the 200 gallon box.

Elmer's prefers that we pick up the salt in bulk, so please post how many you want and I will bring them to the next meeting. They don't want us trickling in and picking it up box by box.

You can pay by cash, check (made out to the club) or paypal to the club.

Please post ASAP.

Hi all,

Some clarifications:

- Salt will be available at the March meeting.
- I will check this thread about noon on the day of the meeting, so you have until then to request your salt and still be able to pick it up at the meeting.
-If you are going to pay for your salt by paypal, please pay $48.15 ($5 + 7% sales tax, yes 7%. Allegheny County) per box via paypal in advance to save time at the meeting. Otherwise, please bring cash or a check.

03-16-2011, 09:21 PM
I could not find paypal either - im just bringing cash - and yes exact change :)

03-17-2011, 10:58 AM
Hi all,

Sorry. You can just send the correct amount of money to treasurer@PMASI.org

Cash or check at the meeting is fine. Exact change is appreciated (read: if you don't have change, you will be donating a fraction of a dollar to the club).

I am paid up but I am not going to be able to make it to the meeting to pick up my 2 boxes. Is there anyone that is close to Jeannette that would be willing to snatch them up and meet me some time so that I can get them off the clubs hands?

How are we going to receive the goods?

I wouldn't expect them to pack the things into the meeting, if so, let me know and I'll bring my hand dolly.


Are we making the exchange outside near a truck?

03-19-2011, 08:38 AM
will make the meeting tonight...to pay dues. please put me down for two boxes please. thank you, frank

Hi all,

The salt will be in Anthony's pickup. We will pass it out after the meeting.

If you want to pay for your salt by paypal/credit card, there is now a link on the main page that says "donate". If you follow that link, you can enter the amount and pay via paypal or a credit card. Credit cards will be processed through paypal, but a paypal account is NOT required.

Big Dog, I am sure your dolly will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks all!

Thanks to Anne from Elmer's really who went out of her way to contact Adam and PMAS and earn our business back. We have just 2 boxes out of 28 left, but we can get more if the club needs it.

Thanks to all that supported the buy.
