I hope the people who have expressed an interest by putting their name on the list will get priority... Otherwise there wasn't much point in that.

I hope I'm not working on Sunday, better ser my alarm - no lie in for me! :lol:

Thanks again Tony for organising this for us all.

OK folks....in an effort to keep those "on the list" happy, I'll PM the link to the wood to the first 7 on the list on Thursday evening, the next 7 on Friday evening, and the final 7 on Saturday . The link will then be posted here on Sunday at 10am.

Hope that works for everyone :D If anyone who is going to the Oliver Knott demo day at TGM (13th Sept) can wait for their wood, then let me know which bits you want and I'll label it as yours and bring it up on the day.

Here is the final list, as made up from the previous threads, and in date order:

Glenn Eldridge - Post (Combined with SimonD - tbc)

It might be worth saving your shipping/collection requirements untill you've got your manzi reserved :) That way it'll be easier to collate shipping info, instead of hunting through this thread :) What I'll do though is edit the list of people and add a note to those who have already chosen how to get hold of their wood (ooerr!) :lol:

I think the best person to PM would be Tonser (Tony) - he seems to be the one organising everything. ;)

Just wanted to say thank you up front to Tony for arranging all of this, and thanks to Tom (if you are reading this post :D ) for taking the time to collect the wood, packing it all up and shipping it over.

Its just nice to know that there are good people in the world, that are willing to take the time and effort to help people out.

As queer as it may sound, I'm looking forward to seeing the bits of wood :lol:

Thanks again

Jack

There's more wood.
If folks prefer longer pieces, the box starts to get much smaller around.
I think I'll add some like that next time and then pack the void space with the smaller shorter pieces.

We can still add more weight, the real issue on my end is getting the most wood I can into a box that still has some nice character.

I can pack two types of boxes next time, one for smaller shorter pieces with branches etc, and another with lots of longer slender pieces that can stick out, for 120 Cm long tanks or larger.

Damn, I wish I could just drive over, dump a couple of truck loads over at Tony's and be done with it.
Even if it was a 2 hour drive etc.

It's what it's like at my place:)

I have a 60p ADA that I am building up with a Tek T5 light suspension, ADA stand, black sand flourite, Mazanita wood, and of course.........Zebra L046(F1's, 8 of them) and about 50 Crystal red shrimps.
Have not decided the plants etc. Really looking to do something new.

Must consult the Wood God.

Regards,
Tom Barr

Garuf, have a look back through the thread at my last response to your PM request - all is explained ;)

:wideyed: :wideyed: :wideyed: Erm.....thanks for the offer, but my garage is only so big :lol: Seriously though Tom, it would be great if we didnt have to do the shipping bit as thats the tricky, and expensive bit. Perhaps we could just play Pooh sticks with a truck load across the Atlantic !

Lets see what gets taken from this 1st batch, and then get an idea of what else people would like size wise. Thanks again.

Tony
