TOM BARR Visit 18th SEPT

Recommended Posts

Tom Barr is coming to Brisbane!! :):)

For those that don’t know him, Tom Barr is a world famous planted tank and aquatic plant “guru”.

If you haven’t seen his “Barr Report” you can see it here: http://www.barrreport.com/

Tom is a keynote speaker at the upcoming ANGFA Convention (in Sydney 12 – 13 September). Details of the convention can be found at http://convention.angfa.org.au/. If you haven’t booked yet, book now, as it will be an awesome event. And tickets are selling fast so don’t leave it to the last minute and find you have missed out!

But as an added incentive for Brisbanites, Tom is coming to Brisbane and this is your chance to hear it directly from the guru himself!

Details of his Brisbane appearances are:

Friday 18th Sept

7.30pm – planted tank demo. Tom will speak about tank design and demonstrate the techniques he uses for planting a tank.

This is your chance to hear directly from Tom and ask him questions.

At the end of the evening the tank that Tom builds will be raffled. How cool would it be to say that you owned a tank built personally by Tom Barr!!?

This talk is free to members of ANGFA QLD, and $5 for members of the general public.

The venue is expected to be the Bar Jai Hall in Clayfield (confirmed).

Saturday 19th Sep

11.00am – Q&A session

At Fishchick Aquatics.

Jodi-Lea Matheson is hosting Tom at Fishchick Aquatics at shop 17, 478 Ipswich Road in Annerley (Tel: 3848-9585). This is a Q&A session, your opportunity to ask all those tricky questions about substrate, lighting, algae, CO2, etc.

This will be followed by a BBQ lunch at 12.00pm (gold coin donation) where you can speak to Tom in person. Ring Jodi if you can help out with food for the BBQ. Jodi also stocks aquatic substrates, plants, a wide range of fish, and a fabulous selection of driftwood.

Please spread the word, as this is a rare opportunity to hear from a world renowned expert.

I've got the Green light from MrsJ for tomorrow nightm, so I'll be there. Sounds like it'll be worth taking some extra pocket money too. I got to have a sneak peak at some of the driftwood that Steve Baines is taking in for the ANGFA shop and there's some great pieces in there.

I'll be going. Straight from work probably.

Just the other side of Sandagate Rd, from where Aquariums R Us and Clayfield Aquarium are situated for those who get lost once they cross the river, like me.

Being a newbie to the hobby, I'll probably sit up the back of the hall and try to keep my mouth shut. And I'll probably fail miserably.
