President's Message for October 2015


Happy Thanksgiving

Don‘t eat too much Turkey,

I have noticed that the attendance for the general meeting has been kind olf light over the past few months. We can get a lot more done when we have representation from all the clubs and then this will stop the scuttlebutt of we never hear anything from CAOAC. Your club representative should be in attendance either by filling a chair or by using Skype to have your clubs voice heard. There are lots of things going on in all the member clubs, that would be wonderful if everybody knows, from Dinners and Guest Speakers and a whole bunch of other events, from the west coast to the east coast. So come out and join us and have your voice be heard.

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 London Aquaria Society had their show at the end of September. The turnout was down but all in all there were some great fish. The Auction was well attended as well as lots of great bargains for all. Hamilton Auction will soon be past and then Kitchener and then St Catharine's then to Peel. Lots of miles and lots of great deals. It is always nice to see old friends and meet new ones, this is one of the exciting things about our hobby.

The London Aquaria Society has gotten a full slate of speakers for the 2016 CAOAC Convention and the raffle tickets are being sold for a chance to win your convention ticket. They are five dollars each and with every twenty that are sold then a draw will take place and the winner will get their convention ticket. Good luck to all. . 

 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.

The shows and auctions are back,

Time to enjoy the fall,

Ron Bishop
President, CAOAC
