June 9: Cory McElroy - Ponds

This month's talk is Mini Ponds, Fun for the Whole Family, presented by our own Cory McElroy. Cory, in addition to his full-time job running Aquarium Co-Op, has been active in multiple roles with GSAS for many years, the most impactful of which was the resuscitation of the BAP program (see photo). He was also the lead tech behind our tank revamp-turned reality show a few years ago.

Cory describes himself thusly: Since being diagnosed with Multiple Tank Syndrome, Cory McElroy has worked in the fish trade for seven years. After opening his own fish store a couple years back, the Multiple Tank Syndrome subsided...only to be replaced with an addiction to Koi and outdoor ponds. Cory can be found playing in many ponds from ten to one thousand gallons in his spare time.

We also have our monthly auction and bowl show (aquaponics themed for the latter), plus elections!

2015 Auction - Thanks!

A massive thanks to all the attendees and volunteers at our 2015 Big General Auction -- we sold a record number of items, and will be able to keep GSAS running quite healthily for the next year, including some speakers from across the country and the ocean...

A special thanks to all the local stores and national companies that provided us with the huge variety of donations this year!
