What's going on with the GSLAS ?
Now meeting at the garden center building at 1602 e 2100 s in Salt Lake. Regular meeting have been moved to the fourth Thursday of the month. The building is on the north-east corner of Sugarhouse Park. Head east on 2100 south and turn right into the parking lot on the corner of the park(just before Highland High School). Doors open at 6:30 and meetings start at 7:00 unless listed otherwise.
January 25 Our next meeting is January 25th at 7:00pm
We will have three speakers and fish for sale. Stephen Carlilest will speak on Xiphophorus Platies and Swordtails - The wild Ones. Come and find out where all our colorful platies and swordtails came from and their easy to keep wild relatives.
Fish he will bring include: Xiphophorus montezumae, X. nezahualcoyotl, X. helleri "guntheri" Golden Stream, and some others. These are hard to find fish from wild stock, and they can sell for big money to collectors.
Bob Allen will speak on lamprichthys tanganicanus and possibly another favorite. He will be bringing fish for sale.
Mike Dennis will speak on keeping and breeding nothobranchius and other small peat spawning killifish. He will be bringing some fish.
Also, we have found several other clubs have small auctions after meetings, so we are going to give it a try. You can bring a maximum of five items to sell, for 1.00 per item contribution to the club. The option to donate items to the club is also available.
February 22 meeting topic?
March 10 Spring auction- get some fish ready to sell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
April 26 Chad Hill- His adventures in the Amazon!
May 24 Mike Hellweg- wild type bettas.
The October auction brought in just enough money to pay for the 2018 building rental and we have enough in the bank to cover 2-3 speakers for next year. We will look forward to a productive March auction for future funding. Also, show your support by paying $20.00 for membership (that's less than a nice dinner with a partner). I welcome your imput on how the club can serve you as a hobbiest. We will be trying some new meeting formats so come and participate. If you have a fish you are breeding, and you are willing to share your knowledge, let me know.
We also want to thank Nic and his family for their support by letting us use their nice meeting room in the past. Their facility is top notch so if your company needs a quality spot for meeting or presentations call them At the Ibarra-Brito Centre.
Thanks for supporting your club. Your help and ideas are always encouraged.
I have set up a facebook page under The Great Salt Lake Aquarium Society(can anyone help me figure out how to tag it so people can search GSLAS and have it come up?). Like the site and post fish stuff and possitive club suggestions.
