Club Meeting – September 19th 7:00 PM – Wild and Wild-Type Live-Bearers

As always in the TOM BROWN ARENA 2ND FLOOR

Join us for our September meeting on September 19th.

Our presentation will be by Gary Elson of Montreal who was slated to present to us in May of this year. His talk will be focused on live-bearers.

Here is Gary’s Bio:

Gary has had fish for 49 years, since he was 8. He has written 3 books on aquariums in the Barron’s Series, and has well over 100 articles published in English, and translated into French, Polish, Italian, Mandarin, Japanese and now German (He has one coming in the European Amazonas). Gary was a monthly columnist for Tropical Fish Hobbyist for 6 years, and was a longtime Contributing Editor to that mag. Gary has been a member of the two Montreal clubs since 1992.

We will be serving drinks and snacks.

Rob and the other members of the Executive hope to see you all!

Garage Sale Season Opener! September 17th 2016

Preceding our first meeting this year we like to invite you to our annual Garage Sale Season Opener!

Hello all!

The garage sale takes place the Saturday before our first meeting this year: on September 17th from 10am to 12pm at Tom Brown Arena.

It’s a great chance to get meet up with fellow fishy friends, clean out the fishroom of unused stuff, thin out the fry that showed up unexpectedly over the summer, de-weed that planted tank, … You get the idea! :)

Also, bring $20.00 to renew/buy your new membership for this year if you have not done it yet.

Looking forward to seeing everyone out!
