Presidents Message

CAOAC Convention coming soon! (May 18-20)

For our May meeting we will have a presentation from Annette and myself with a talk about our experience setting up a Biotope. Special thanks to Sharon for her computer knowledge to get everything working. It is a lot of fun going out finding the fish and rocks and plants to do our best in copying Mother Nature. We get our fresh air and we get some great fish. It was interesting doing the talk for the first time with a few bumps along the way.
Club elections are coming, so if anyone of the members would like to try for a position on the executive, all positions are open. Let somebody on your present executive know your intentions. We will be having some openings come up this year. I am not running for the Presidents position this year. Its time for some new thoughts and ideas. I have had great time in that position for the London Aquaria Society and enjoyed all the changes we have gone thru to make our club as much fun as it is to belong to. A very special thanks to all of the executive members that have been thru the good and bad times. Anybody that takes over will have a great executive to be there for them on their way. Anybody that joins the executive will have a really easy transition. Thank you for everything and your support along the way.
The convention is ready for the big show to begin. The ticket sales have been good and we will have a great turnout. So if you are sitting on the fence and waiting to decide is it now or never. If you only want to hear a special speaker, we have decided to charge $20 for that option. Anybody that has some time to give to the convention and you would like to help, please feel free to do so. With the set up and the auction there will be many things to do, so if you can it would be wonderful.

The fish show for May will be the class of My Favourite Fish. This is any fish that you have as your favourite and it is going to be judged by all in attendance. The only rule is it has to be a fish. As well as the Open Class and the Open Class for Plants. Also this month we will have a Pairs Class. The auction will be there as usual.
