Member Appreciation Fish Swap and Picnic.
Our annual Member Appreciation Fish Swap and Picnic Is held during our August Club meeting on the second Friday of the Month, 8PM at the Ritchie Memorial Shelter.
This is another month in which instead of having a Speaker or Presentation during our meeting, we instead, focus on showing our appreciation by having a great dinner, getting loads of new fish, as well as socializing to celebrate another successful Ultra Aqua Show Event (that we all have worked hard for!)
This is more of a Pot-Luck Style Dinner where we provide the main course and everyone pitches in and brings a dish of their choosing.
After we all have a great dinner, we draw tickets for the Fish Swap! The Club provides some nice high value fish and plants for the swap as well as everyone else brings in their own nice fish or plants to contribute and earn their tickets! Then as your ticket is called, you get to chose your prize from the loaded tables full of goodies that everyone has brought in! We all usually leave with our arms and bellies quite full! If you don’t already, this is a good time to remember to bring those coolers with you 😉
