I'm going up with a friend of mine Friday night to tear the roof off Cleveland and staying at the Renaissance. I can meet up with you guys when u gEt to the swap.

03-09-2011, 01:14 PM
I am in - registered on Fragswapper, will be taking my truck- but also may have one kid for sure and maybe two kids with me. So, not much room for passengers. However, could help with transport of any dry-goods that anyone is selling or buying.

03-10-2011, 11:58 AM
Christie and I should be attending.

OK - definitely have room one one rider - it will have to be in the back seat of the extended cab truck though - unless your larger than my 15 y.o= 5'10 ' and 175 pounds - ya he is eating me out of "house and home". If your bigger than he is then we can gang up on him and kick him to the back- LOL . I will probably use an inverted for power to run an air pump/heater to a 20 gallon Rubbermade behind the drivers seat to keep frags healthy (both to the swap and back again) that the rider is welcome to use as well. Please contact me to work out details if you wish to ride with us. Is the meeting spot behind the Krispy Kreme?

03-17-2011, 10:13 AM
Yes Ted its next to / behind KK. Donuts..yummm

03-28-2011, 10:32 PM
hey everyone, just wanted to say i'm in for the trip on the 9th, i'll also have my boyfriend with me n i can drive too if need be.

03-29-2011, 08:16 AM
Thanks for posting.

It will be a fun day.

03-29-2011, 06:24 PM
Please add the wife and I to the fun trip list. I will be driving and can seat 3 adults comfortably and haul any over size or weight items.

Bill and Theresa

I'm in for the trip and will be driving myself. I don't need any money to drive but I do have a small request. I'm here in town from out of state and was hoping to find someone that would be able to house any frags that I purchase for a few weeks until I am able to bring them back with me. I'm setting up a new anemone and zoa tank just to give an idea of what I might be purchasing.



03-30-2011, 11:41 AM
We are going to have a good turnout for this one. I updated the attendee lists.

Please note that we will be filling larger cars first to a comfortable number of people and working down. If you offered to drive and can reply with how many people you can fit it will also help.

If you drive on your own you are not eligible for the reimbursement we cannot just reimburse you just for going (smile).

03-30-2011, 12:09 PM
I drive a Dodge Caliber and will gladly drive anyone that needs a ride. I can also pick up members close to me (Shadyside) if they do not have a ride to the designated meet-up spot in Cranberry TWP. I'm not really sure of the backseat leg room (rental), so just a heads up. Once again, I'm not looking for any reimbursement and will gladly drive just for the experience of shooting the breeze with other reefers.

03-30-2011, 12:14 PM
Thanks Mark. I have updated the first post with attendees. Going to be a nice group!

03-30-2011, 03:26 PM
It will be a nice group indeed! 13 signed up so far!

03-30-2011, 03:58 PM
We drive a F350 crew cab. Can handle 3 adults for sure or 4 if there are kids.


04-01-2011, 11:57 PM
I could bring a mini van, 6 adults would fit easily.

04-02-2011, 11:16 PM
I am in and will have a big cooler maybe a protein skimmer...I can drive if needed but only have a Jetta.

04-05-2011, 04:38 PM
sorry guys/gals- my sons wants "alone time" so - I will not be meeting up in cranberry with the rest of you after all. WE will be going together to the swap so will see everyone there, and maybe at each place- great plan- but when your teenager wants to be alone with you , you take the opportunity and don't question it.

04-05-2011, 05:42 PM
Selfish teenagers, how dare they think they can have u for a whole day lol. I think its cool that a father and son are into this hobby. Congrats to u ted, im sure we will see u around

I Agree with that!

04-07-2011, 03:02 PM
I know its last minute
I'll meet you and catch a ride from someone

04-07-2011, 04:15 PM
You have time! Thanks for joining..

04-08-2011, 10:02 AM
Hi all,

I added myself to the list. I have a small SUV and am willing to drive. I should also have plenty of cargo space for equipment that anyone wants to bring.


04-08-2011, 01:16 PM
I will bring an extra cooler (styro) box along with mine, some heat packs/cool packs.

Sounds like we will be good on cars.

If anyone has any issues fee free to call my direct line (412) 567-4894, it will ask you to identify yourself but will forward to my current location. If you are not going to make it, going to be late or other please let us know as soon as possible.

04-08-2011, 05:16 PM
Is this the address for the initial meet up location:

Kings Family Restaurants
20111 Route 19, Mars, PA

King's Jewelry
20111 Route 19, Cranberry Township, PA

I am from out of state and if these addresses are incorrect, could you please provide the correct address?

04-08-2011, 06:22 PM

Map King's restaurant zip code 16066.

Otherwise, if you get off the turnpike or 79 in cranberry, kings is a mile or less north on 19. It's across from get go and is next to long John silvers.


04-10-2011, 12:06 PM
Thanks to everyone that came out, we had 16 total I think.

I hope everyone had a great time

04-10-2011, 12:42 PM
I did! I did! Lol
