      One week from today is February 14th which is not only Valentine’s Day.....it is GSAS Annual Plant Auction Day! Imagine how excited your special someone will be when you come home with a large bouquet of Java Fern or a an Amazon Sword or bunch of Cryptocoryne in full bloom! Or better yet, bring them with you and let them buy you that special species that you have coveted for the last 6 months! Don’t forget that we are in the Falcon Lounge across the street from our regular building on the SPU campus. I hope to see you there!

Erios, Pogostemon helferi (Downei), various Microsorum pteropus (Java Fern) including 'Trident', 'Narrow', and 'Needle', Anubias (various including nana 'Petite'), E. vesuvius, Swords (various species including some larger specimen plants), and many others that you may or may not find in our LFS!

        I hope to see you there!

          Hi All,

          We had an excellent auction! Since the Annual Plant Auction is one of the two annual events (along with our Big General Auction in April) that we utilize to to raise funds our club it is important that it do well. Otherwise we cannot continue to afford the free presentations from world class speakers and the Philanthropy programs that we offer to the public to help promote our hobby.

          Last night (Valentine's Day night no less!) we had over 115 attendees bidding on over 500 lots of plants and fish! There were steals, deals, and squeals all night long. I saw some rare plants like Erios (three varieties) and Pogostemons sell very inexpensively and some common crypts go for $$$. There were some 'new to the market' mosses from Aqua Forest Amano, unusual fish including F1 Apistos, shrimp (Rilli), and invertebrates and some carnivorous plants from Chuck Rambo! Tom Barr sent some plant unusual specimens that our members truly appreciated!

          If you missed out don't be too hard on yourself; there are always plenty of fish, plants, and supplies available at our Big Annual Auction in April....watch for the announcement about it and the new location for the event! (The auction has become so popular that we have outgrown the location we have used the last several years.)

          GSAS is moving the Annual Plant Auction to the fall so all of our auctions events don't happen just in the late winter / early spring. Later this year we will have our first fall Annual Plant Auction, I believe it will be scheduled for November.

          Next month, back by popular demand.....Dick Au from San Francisco! He will doing a presentation on "Raising Fish for Fun and Profit" for our meeting that is open to the public and a second presentation on another subject for GSAS members only.

          I hope to see you there!
          -Roy
