    DefaultAnybody know of a suitable open VENUE for Spring Auction???

    Heard that the club is having difficulty booking a venue for the upcoming planned Spring Auction because the church gym that we always use is fully booked for different school events.

    So if anybody knows of a decent sized venue for a reasonable rental rate (preferably on a Saturday in early May I believe), please let us know.

    Thanks,

    Anthony

    The Ocean Park Community Hall or the Elgin Hall in White Rock/South Surrey are likely available.

    I realize they aren't located very centrally, but from what I remember size is relatively comparable.

    I am on the search as well ... texted Dave yesterday to say that I would put out feelers for other venue options. FYI: VAHS is looking for:

    • May 5 - preferred date
    • Kitchen Access
    • 20 tables
    • 150 - 200 chairs
    Small fish room, 24 tanks - various sizes. Inside the house (1) 40 - Breeder + 2 show tank 1 Fluval Venezia 190 L & Fluval Venezia 350 L

    Fish Room Album

    I keep most of my breeding groups in biotope tanks. I move pairs or breeding groups to special tanks to spawn and raise fry. I also take full advantage of Ziss & Marina water circulating breeder boxes. African Cichlids are what I breed mostly but have gotten more interested in catfish - corys & BN plecos in the past 12 months.

    to date there is no auction , its not just venue but also who is availabe for those who organize it.
    Previously several members who are involved live in north vancouver, surrey and whiterock are not good options unless there are people who live out there are willing to organize it.
    VAHS is looking for a new person to look after membership as our membership person is now moving out of town.
    we may set up a june meeting date at bonsor community center will let everyone know if this is going to happen.
    Regards michael

    Thanks Mike for the update, I'm hoping some fellow aquarist's will step up and help with the organizing of the yearly auctions and join the steering committee to help out with the ongoing business of the club to keep it going for years to come. Since I moved to the okanagan last summer I am sadly unable to participate as I did when lived in Langley . It would sure be a sad day to see VAHS go by the wayside because of lack of help.
