Meetings

Meetings are held on the 2nd Friday of every month at
Ritchie Memorial Shelter House at 109 West Avenue in Tallmadge, Ohio 44278 
8:00pm start time.

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


Our meeting agenda is simple and informal.

The meeting will begin at approximately 8:00 p.m. We begin with a short Club News/ Business announcement 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, workshop, 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 BAP Fish & HAP Plants are auctioned, our Door Prize winner is announced and tickets are drawn for the Equipment and Item Raffles.

 
Speaker and Presentations last approximately 45 minutes and will differ each month with various topics, all relating to the hobby. (Click for our  Speakers page)
 
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. (Click Here for more info)
 
Refreshments are always free of charge and 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. This is a great way to get quality fish at a low cost. (Click BAP or HAP for more information)
