2017 Fall Auction Summary

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

THANK YOU!

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.
