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!

This month we had our annual Ultra Aqua Show and auction!
We had another successful show this year!
Our G.A.A.S. team is having a Sevrum Growth Competition, and hosting a Multi-Club Competition!
Thanks to a local breeder, YATFS member Brian Strickland who had over 500 Gold Sevrum Fry to re-home, we were able to obtain and distribute over 100 of these guys to our members.
We have used this opportunity and these 100 fry to start a club growth competition! Anyone who came to our April meeting, 2017 and wished to participate was provided with a bag of 8 gold sevrum fry, free of charge.
The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate and a one year extension to their club membership.
The competition rules are simple.
Take your fry home, care for them, feed and maintain your fish however you normally do, but keep some records (tank size, water changes, feeding etc.) This will allow the winner to pass along to other members what worked for them.
For judging just bring in your largest individual at the December Christmas party meeting.
We will also be participating in a Multi-Club competition hosted at our ULTRA AQUA SHOW!
We will be competing against neighboring local club members from Y.A.T.F.S. who also received sevrums from the same stock for their own home club competition.
The Multi-Club Competition will be held next year during our 2018 ULTRA AQUA SHOW!
Winning Prizes and any specific rules for this one will be announced at a later date.
GOOD LUCK to all the participants!
