May 12th Meeting

The May meeting was quite the surprise.  We had 28 people enjoy themselves on Mother's Day.  The turnout was unexpected but it was also wonderful!  And we had two new members and one renewal.  Welcome Judy and Amit and welcome back Char.

Thanks to all who came and enjoyed Dave Padgett's presentation on setting up a saltwater aquarium.  Dave made it fun and entertaining and he referenced Bob Goemans several time.  Bob, it is great to have a knowledgeable resource like you in the club.

We gave out $130 in gift certificates in our Members' Only and two of our new members--Judy and Amit--won.  They basically recouped their membership fee in the first meeting.  Others winning were DJ, Alan, Dan, Liz Chris, Dave Scott, Sarela, and Char.  Remember also that all members will be receiving a new T-shirt with the new logo at the December Holiday Party.

We had a typical raffle with lot's of plants, some angelfish, and blue, red, and yellow shrimp.  Lauri and Mahlon are doing a great job in breeding the shrimp and so kind to share their extra shrimp with all of us.  The sharing of what we breed is one of benefits of having a club.  We have some expert breeders--plant, fish, and invertebrates.

Our club continues to grow with 32 memberships--18 family memberships and 14 single memberships.   

If you are in the Tucson area , come to a meeting.  It is the 2nd Sunday of each month.  Hope to see you there.
