    Ya sure hoping for a good turn out, the club needs some people to help keep it going. I'm moving otherwise I would stay involved. If nobody steps up to help it could be the end of the VAHS auctions.

    The VAHS is a local "club" for all types of aquarists to meet together, ask questions, discuss successes or failures, and even buy some nice plants, fish, equipment at the meetings. We have members with literally 4 decades or more of fish-keeping experience who enjoy sharing their knowledge and experience with others. We have people keeping African & S.A. cichlids, planted community, brackish, sw fish-only, reefers, breeders, etc.

    The biggest events are the Spring & Fall Auction held in North Van at ST. Pius X church, with several hundred items sold between 10 and 3-4pm, with a lunch break in between. Doors open around 9am to allow people to register (those who haven't preregistered) and to look at all the goodies they might want to bid on.

    The meetings used to be monthly with a break in the summer but are now held every couple of months. The meetings are usually held at Bonsor Community Centre at start at 7:30pm but doors open at 7. Sometimes I host the meetings at my place.

    There is now an annual VAHS bbq, which I host in my backyard in South Burnaby and it's usually in August, but that may change. Members eat and drink for free (annual membership is $20) but non-members are welcome to join and eat for a nominal fee.

    Hope that answers your questions.

    Well said Anthony, I think you hit all the highlights of the club, now all we need is some folks to join in and help out to keep the club going strong for years to come.

    I would suggest putting ads on Craigslist & Kijiji, especially for the auctions.
