President's Message for November 2015
Lest we forget,
I hope everybody has had a chance to take in some of the Fall Auctions and Shows. The competition in the shows has been exciting. The Kitchener, Waterloo Aquarium Society had their show at the end of October. The turn out was alright but all in all there was some great fish. The Auction was well attended as well as lots of great bargains for all. The Peel Auction will be next then St Catharine's . Lots of miles and lots of great deals. Then it is time to get ready for the cold and crappy weather and with all the new species to breed over the winter this is one of the exciting things about our hobby.
The London Aquaria Society executive has got the raffle tickets for a chance to win your convention ticket. They are five dollars each and with every twenty tickets sold, a draw will take place and the winner will get their convention ticket for free. Good luck to all.
I would still like to see a few more faces at the CAOAC Meeting in Waterdown , As this is a great way to increase the communication between the clubs and find out what everybody is doing to help their club work and maybe get some fresh ideas to bring back to your own club. We had a few new faces at the last meeting but there were still a lot of empty chairs around the table. Remember an empty chair makes no noise and there are a lot of great ideas that are not being shared. It is very discouraging when you hear grumbling from the clubs that don’t make an appearance at the meetings. When you hear this stuff from somebody who was not there it has no bearing on those that were. We had a great discussion from those in attendance at the last meeting and lots of great ideas came out. For those who don’t care to show up I guess you will have to put up with the your same ideas . Once again, Remember a empty chair makes no noise.
Also if there are interested people we need some committee people to fill some empty spots. We will be having our 50/50 Draw and the ever popular draw table so we can all either donate or buy some tickets for a chance to win what is on the tables. So come one all.
If there are any clubs out there that have changes in executive please get the new information to us so we can update our records.
The chill is in the air, Time to enjoy the fall,
Ron Bishop, President, CAOAC
