February 11th Meeting: Lawrence Kent

Our February speaker is Lawrence Kent who will share with us the presentation he made last summer as the keynote speaker at the American Cichlid Association's annual convention -- "Holy Grail Cichlids, Friends, and Other Fish:Two West African Stories."

The presentation will cover his recent trip to the Islamic Republic of Mauritania and other forays into the wild world of Nigeria. He found some interesting fish in both of these strange and rarely visited countries, and not just cichlids but also characins, mormyrids, and catfish. If you like African fish or just funny stories, please come!

Lawrence has been a grateful member of GSAS for 13 years. He has made fish presentations in twenty cities, collected fish in 23 countries, and published two dozen articles in Tropical Fish Hobbyist, Cichlid News, Buntbarsche Bulletin, and very recently the German magazine DATZ. He currently serves as an Associate Editor of Amazonas magazine. Lawrence keeps 27 tanks at home filled with African cichlids, Southeast Asian labyrinths, and self-collected native fish.

Thank you to our 2019 Auction Donors

Thanks so much to all the folks who bought and sold at our 2019 General Auction. The auctions are the club's primary funding, so your bidding is helping us bring more big speakers, fund the huge home show coming up in February, and pay for the BAP and HAP awards coming up this month.

A special shout-out to our local stores who donated product, even with the weird fall schedule we had this year. Please let them know by visiting and purchasing from them this holiday season and the upcoming year.
