Our next meeting will be Friday, August 1st, where Juan Damelines will speak about plecos. There will be a betta bowl show and an auction. Members are welcome to bring fish, corals, plants, etc to the auction. The club does not keep any of the auction winning bid or charge a fee to enter items. What people bid is what you get!
As a special event, we will also be raffling away a copy of Amazonas magazine. All who attend will receive a free raffle ticket.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Is there a member fee for joining the club, attending the meetings, etc?
A: No, it's free to come to meetings. We won't ask you for money, it's free and always will be.
Q: What's a meeting like?
A: People show up around 7:30 and start setting up and browsing through auction goods. From 8-9, we all listen to the month's speaker. At 9, we have a betta bowl show. Around 9:15 we start the auction.
Q: Auction? What are the auction rules?
A: People are welcome to bring any aquarium related item (fish fry, filters, reptile heating lamps, flake food, anything). They set their item's starting bid. The auctioneer bounces bids back and forth among people, until the highest bid is determined. That person gives cash to the seller. The club doesn't keep any of the sale price. What people bid is what the seller gets.
