General Auction - Saturday November 9th!

TL;DR: Saturday November 9th, 10AM, White Center Eagles. Plants, Fish, Drygoods, Local Store Donations!

We held it off from April, but it's finally here! The GSAS 2019 General Auction! Lots of awesome aquarium stuff being sold by GSAS members, donations from local stores, and more!

Like last year's expanded plant auction, we will be holding our general auction at the White Center Fraternal Order of Eagles, 10452 15th Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98146. It's super easy to get to from 99/509, and fairly close to I5 as well. Tons of parking right in the lots there, and no stairs. Lots of lunch options close (though we will have pizza slices available).

Bidding starts at 10 AM, preview and setup at 9. We go until everything's gone (likely mid-afternoon). Please read the auction guidelines for more information. If you are a member, please pre-register your items.

Will there be more giant logs like the one sold last year? Who knows! Check Airstone and our Facebook page through weeks leading up to see some of the items we're pulling from the donation vault!

Non-members are always welcome -- spread the news, print and hang the amazing poster from Amit! Volunteer to be a runner or recorder for a stretch.

Hope to see our entire membership there on the 9th!

Home Show 2020 Registration Open

The 2016 crew at Dean’s fishroom (click for full view!)

Home Show 2020 is now open for registration at gsas.org/homeshowform.php.

It's simple: Six of us, a videographer, photographer, Chair, and three judges, come to your house for about 30-45 minutes on the weekend (not the Super Bowl). You show off your tanks and we ask questions. The GSAS Home Show is open to all members, from I've just got one, to I have a fishroom. Everyone, including you! Results are shown at a meeting in the spring.

Did you participate in one of the workshops at last May's AGA Convention? Or did you win a tank in the auction or raffle? We would like to come visit!

If you'd like an idea of how much fun it is, see previous years here.
