Hello GSAS Fish Lovers,

It’s almost time for our annual Holiday Potluck meeting on Tuesday, December 15th. This is the 3rd Tuesday of the month due to SPU’s schedule. The doors open at 7pm, come early and help set up!! We will be holding the party in the Student Union Building Gazebo, same place as last year. See Map to the meeting, and Google Directions.

We will have a potluck dinner, for which the club provides ham, rotisserie chicken and bean stew (vegetarian), drinks, paper plates and plastic utensils. PLEASE bring a dish to share, sweet or savory …. Your choice. If you would like to participate in the White Elephant gift exchange, bring a gift wrapped, fish themed item and see what you can take home. (Value ~$10-$15) We’ll also play FISH-O … a roaring game of fishy themed bingo where you can win great prizes. Carol, our BAP/CARES chairperson, will award prizes to the top fish breeders in the club. We hope to see you there, and bring the family!! If you could drop me a line at to let me know you are coming and how many will be in your party, that would be very much appreciated! We want to make sure to have enough utensils, drinks and ham/chicken/beans for all!

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!
