    May not make it. There's apparently a crash on the bridge that puts travel time at about 2 hours

    We had the bay bridge closed for about 27 minutes today due to demolition of old pier foundations this morning. This may have caused delays from San Francisco to Oakland

    Ahh so that's it. Google maps just flagged it as an "accident" .. or maybe there was an accident as well as the demo work, which would explain why it was saying ~ 2 hour drive times. That would be one ugly accident to do that.

    Thank you so much Dick and Linda for hosting and Asia for helping to organize!

    I had a great time chatting, enjoyed the tanks, learned a few things. The lunch was yummy and I won one of Mark and Peter’s Hollywood stunner chalices in the raffle!

    Thanks Dick and Linda for having us over.

    Nice meeting everyone, awesome tanks and great collection of fish. The Bristle tooth tang was my favorite!

    Dick and Family,
    Thanks for hosting such a wonderful get together! We had a great time, and the food was delicious. Peter is ready to head back over for another pulled pork sandwich.

    Thank you all for coming. Linda and I were pleased to meet everyone both old members and members that were new to us.
    It appears that there are more members here in the east bay than I thought, and I would like to know how many would like to participate in a tank tour in the future. I’m always interested in seeing what other’s are doing. Different fish, corals, etc,

    Thanks Dick and Linda for having us all over! You have some great tanks going!
    Also great to always meet people offline and chew the fat a bit.
