    Default CR Sponsor Tour - Sponsor Appreciation Month - May 2010

    sponsor tour lg - CR Sponsor Tour - Sponsor Appreciation Month - May 2010


    To show our appreciation for to the sponsors, the staff thought it would be nice to put together a "Sponsor Tour". A group of us will carpool/caravan to each of the "brick and mortar" sponsors in the southeast and central Michigan area. Because of the number of sponsors and wanting to give the most time possible at each shop, I have divided this between two days as follows (this won't be the driving order...we'll announce that soon

    Saturday - May 8, 2010
    Amazon Stingrays
    Aquarium Shine
    Choice Aquariums
    Reef Solutions
    The Fish Doctors
    Tropicorium

    Saturday - May 15, 2010
    Preuss Pets
    Reef Paradise

    Each of these sponsors will have special CR exclusive deals for us that week/weekend. You will not have to be part of the "caravan" to take advantage of the sale....so if you want to go on your own to one of the sponsors the sale will still be offered. (You may need to print something out to validate the sale...but I will leave the specifics to sponsors to communicate what they have in mind for us.)

    Not to leave anyone out, for the members that cannot make the tour, if the sponsor has a website, they will likely honor the CR exclusive sale.

    For the web-based sponsors, CR will feature a different web-based sponsor each day. Each sponsor will likely offer special sales to CR members the day of their feature or possibly throughout the week. The tentative schedule is as follows:

    May 9 - Cherry Corals
    May 10- Coral Morphologic
    May 11 - Frag Frenzy
    May 12 - House of Corals
    May 13 - Lucid Propagation
    May 14 - Midwest Saltwater
    May 15 - (continuation of brick and mortar tour)
    May 16 -Rays Reef
    May 17 - Reef Filtration
    May 18 - Seaside Treasures
    May 19 - The Blue Glow
    May 20 - Wet Thumb Frags
    May 21 - Alterternative Reef
    May 22 - Reef Odyssey
    May 23 - Nano Customs

    After sorting it out with Tom, the caravan will go to the Ypsi Fish Doc location. I'd like to hit them all, but timing will be tight with all of our stops.

    I think this will be the order:

    My thought is this order:
    Fish Docs - Ypsilanti
    Tropicorium
    Choice
    Reef Solutions
    Amazon Stingrays
    Aquarium Shine

    Fish Docs has already indicated that they would provide coffee and donuts as the first stop. I'm sure as we get closer sponsors will be announcing their sales and treats.

    I need to plan out the time frames a little more, we will need to be at Fish Docs right when they open...10 am...need to verify that for sure. We will probably try to plan on spending at least an hour for each stop....time flies when your staring at livestock.

    This order is subject to change if I find out a shop closes earlier in the day. But from a driving perspective, I think it makes sense.

    All the Fish Docs open at 11. You might want to check that time with Tom
