Hello GSAS members,

It is time for our annual Holiday Party, mark your calendars for December 14th. The doors will open at 6.30pm, feel free to come a little early and help us set up. Please provide proof of vaccination and wear a mask when not eating.

We will be holding the party in the same building as the last few years (Student Union Building) but in a different room. Due to some recent tree damage we will be in the Fireside Room, next to the Gazebo.

We will have a potluck dinner, for which the club provides ham, rotisserie chickens and bean stew (vegetarian/vegan), 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. This year it will be a hybrid version, so even if you decide to stay home you can join us for that part via Zoom -- look for instructions and a link in your inbox the day of the party.

Leslie, our BAP chairpersons, will award prizes to the top fish breeders in the club. Roy, our HAP chairperson, will award prizes to the most accomplished plant geeks.

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!

2022 Home Show Registration is Open!

Home Show 2022 is a "Go!" Registration opened on September 16th, and will be open until January 8th, 2022, to all current members on our website. We are shooting for in-person visits in March (TBD), hoping that going a little later in the year will give a more "normalcy". The presentation will be in May of 2022.

Upcoming Fall Schedule

GSAS is cautiously returning to in-person meetings and auctions this fall! We will be requiring proof of vaccination at all in-person events to help keep everyone as safe as possible. Members will be able to watch all presentations online eventually, so we will try to accommodate folks who are sick, unvaccinated or not comfortable with with in-person events yet. And of course, everything is subject to changes in pandemic state, state and local laws, as well as Seattle Pacific University's outside events policy.

Here is the upcoming tentative schedule:

Club T-shirts available, now in blue!

We ran out of small and medium sizes of our 2019 shirt, and rather than just reprint more in gray again, we did a run with a new color - blue! Same great design by Ryan Henry Ward of Seattle mural fame, but now with a beautiful aqua-background. Because we can't meet in person, we'll ship you one for a few bucks extra. Go to to order.
