GSAS Plant Auction November 13th

TL;DR: Saturday, November 13th, 11AM - 4PM. Seattle Pacific University, Demaray Hall 150. Proof of vaccination required for entry, face masks must be worn inside. Cards only, no cash accepted.

GSAS welcomes you back to our annual plant (and animal) auction! That's right, an entire day of nothing but fish, plants, shrimp and inverts for your bidding pleasure! Non-members are welcome to bid (we hold driver's licenses for non-members until checkout).

We've had to adapt a little: "Normal" locations like gyms are generally not rentable, but we've been able to secure the location of our past two in-person meetings, Demaray Hall at SPU. We've also gone "cashless" to ease the strain on check-out. Finally, you must present proof of vaccination on entry, and masks must be worn at all times while inside the building.

Parking is available in the nearby lots and on the streets. However, as this is likely an unfamiliar area to many, leave some extra time.

GSAS members may bring up to ten lots to sell (15 if you pre-register them. No more than three lots of the same item, live aquarium inhabitants only, no tanks or other drygoods please. No prohibited items. Please read our auction guidelines for more specifics. If you are selling, try to arrive in in the 10 AM hour while we're setting up. Hope to see you there!

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.
