Board Member Meetings are held at the volunteering host’s house, at 7:00pm, on the Thursday following our club meeting.


Our meeting agenda is simple and informal.

The meeting will begin at approximately 8:00 p.m. with a short business meeting as we hear from our board members. Immediately following is the program for the evening. Our programs consist of a speaker, a slide program, a movie, or perhaps a panel discussion – always on a particular subject related to the hobby or various species of fish. Following the program is a short refreshment break, after which the winners of the Bowl Show are announced, the Breeder’s Award Program fish are auctioned, our Door Prize winner is announced and tickets are drawn for the Equipment and Book Raffles.

 
Speaker and Presentations last approximately 45 minutes and will vary each month with various topics, all relating to the hobby.
 
Bowl Show Entries Each month members can bring in fish for specific classes to compete for first, second, and third place.  The charge for each entry is only $ .25.   Members compete for annual awards by accumulating these points throughout the year. (see below for category schedule)
 
Refreshments available generally include water and pop selections along with various snack and finger foods such as Chips and Dip, Brownies, Cookies, Veggies, etc.
 
BAP & HAP turn-ins are auctioned off during the meeting as donations to the club.
 
Membership Door Prize is randomly drawn from our sign-in sheet, and is typically a gift card for various local fish stores or a fish related magazine subscription etc.
