Big Fish Deal Marketplace Tables Still Available


Hey Everyone! I know that many of you have fish to sell, or need to clean out your gently-used aquarium equipment. We still have Sunday Marketplace tables available for the Big Fish Deal - happening next month!


For those that haven't been to the Sunday Marketplace before, we turn the ballroom of the hotel into a flea market of aquarium-related items. Tables are only $30, and you keep everything you make at the table (the club does not take a cut of your profits). You can sign up for a table here: https://capitalcichlids.org/bigfishdeal/events/sunday-marketplace-registration/


Don't have enough to fill a table? You can always split one with someone else.

  • First a big shout out to Raychel Upright for a job well done filling in for your absent Treasurer. She erred on the side of caution in deciding to not make any payouts. To her credit, on Friday, we verified that she entered everything correctly in MyGroupAuctions. Plus the cash box cash count worked out to the penny. Envelopes are in the cash box for distribution to those owed money. The following should see the Treasurer at a future meeting for their November Mini-Auction payouts: Skanda Abeyesekere Andrew Blumhagen Matt Chambers Patchin Curtis Cristy Keister Jae Mitchell Jason Robinson David Snell Brianna Yeager Additionally, there are envelopes in the cash box from past mini-auctions for: Melissa Aragon Mark Hartnett* Jose Jordan* The following individuals should check with the Treasurer in regard to other matters: Kathleen Culbertson Matt Guinn Tom Hall Jackie Hutcherson Sherry Patrick Tracey Pender Susan Peterson Mark Rohrbaugh Matt Woods Any questions please send an email to PVASTreasurer@gmail.com. *mini-auction proceeds not collected in six months devolve to PVAS.
  • That was a great November meeting! Congratulations to our officers and directors. Four more years! Thanks to Raychel Upright for a strong presentation on living wills for your aquatic pets. And many thanks to Scott Fellman for a fantastic presentation on the use of botanicals in the aquarium. Scott is extremely knowledgeable, passionate, and energetic. I love the talks where I come home with a list of new things to try in my aquariums. Finally, that was another fine mini-auction. Very impressive to have so many cool items after the all day auction in October. Thanks to David Snell for being auctioneer.
