Our Christmas Celebration and Sevrum Growth Competition Judging!
These will both be held during our December monthly meeting at our usual time and place; Dec 8th, 2017 beginning at 8:00pm at Ritchie Memorial Shelter House.
For the Sevrum Growth Competition..
Bring in your biggest Sevrum that you received from us back in our April meeting, to be judged in the Growth Competition! Just have a short log of the care you have given these guys over the last 8 months so you can share your wisdom with the rest of us in case you’re the winner!
The winner will receive a $25 Cash Award and a one year extension to their club membership.
And remember to still hang on to these guys so you can participate in the upcoming multi club Growth Competition at our next Ultra Aqua Show in June of 2018!
The Christmas Celebration!
The Christmas party is another fun event, where instead of having a Speaker or Presentation, the club focuses on providing it’s members and attendees with a wonderful Holiday Dinner as well as Special, High Value, Ticket Raffles, that include a bounty of Fish, Plants, Equipment, etc!
Remember the more club meetings and activities that you’ve participated in throughout the year, the more tickets and chances for items you will get! So be sure to always sign in at our meetings and events!
All BAP and HAP items turned in this month will also be placed among the prize table.
We would like to ask everyone to bring in some nice fish or plants, in the spirit of giving, to add to our prize table to be distributed as well!
So bring a dish of your choosing and be prepared to have a great time. Remember to bring those coolers, you will need them!
The Greater Akron Aquarium Society is now offering LARIATS for sell!
Purchase yours for $2 at our Monthly Meetings or Events, or $5 Shipped!
They make great key chains!
Tonight “Bowl Show Bob” Rob Williams did a fantastic presentation titled “What about Bettas“. This was his first time speaking for a club and he nailed it! The presentation of course had tons of information about everything “betta” including breeding as well as introducing us to some of the less commonly found bettas.
Bob has recorded and uploaded his presentation on Youtube, So click the link below if you would like to watch it for yourself.

Tonight was also an important night for our club as we held our annual Board Member Position Elections. Our board members have remained the same, however we will be merging our “Publicity” position into our “Webmaster” duties as well.
Tonight’s Bowl Show went to Dave Williamson Winning 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the AO Livebearers as well as 1st in AO Catfish. Come on people, bring those entries in and give this man some competition!
Congratulations to Bill on winning the RMS Gift Certificate door prize.
Elsie Swanson and Dave Williamson each took home a BAP Certificate tonight and we had several spawns turned in by several members and auctioned off by Will White.
Cheese, meat, and cracker platters as well as 4 varieties of cupcakes graced our Refreshment Table thanks to Elsie, and as usual our Raffle table was packed full!
It was another enjoyable evening at the GAAS and we hope to see you at the next one!

We had another successful Fall AUCTION this year!
First off we would like to thank everyone who showed up and participated, and to all of you who volunteered their time…
Runners, Auctioneers, Our Staff, and Setup Crew
Without your help, these events couldn’t happen!
If you weren’t there, you should have been! There was an awesome selection of fish, plants, and hard goods that were brought in.
Our Tables were simply loaded with items for sale, 1,014 to be exact, and the auction went well into the evening, finally wrapping up at 8pm!
We had some really great Centerpieces for our Membership sign-up or Renewal Raffle, as well as some very nice Purchased Ticket Raffle Items.
We also had more of our New G.A.A.S. T-Shirts for sale.
and of course the kitchen had plenty of food and drinks available.
This year our 50/50 Raffle went to a great cause….
Dominick Cox, a fellow local hobbyist, was involved in a horrific motorcycle accident. He is facing a long and difficult road to recovery and we are proud to say, we were able to raise $205 from the Raffle to help.
So we would like to say a Special Thank You to everyone who participated in the 50/50 Raffle for a cause.
