Fish Draw

Starting in October and tied in with our Breeders Draw a new initiative to help spread around those rarer fish, even while we’re locked down.

It costs you nothing to participate. The winner will be drawn at the end of the month and the fish sent to you by courier.

For our first monthly fish draw, the prizes on offer are:

Thanks to both Lothar and Lachlan for donating them.

If you want to be in the free draw to win either of these great fish prizes (both of which appear on the Breeders Draw list), you must be a current member and OPT IN by replying directly to me no later than 1st October when your name will be entered into the draw. The winners will be pulled from the hat on 31st October, first out gets the pick.

If you don’t respond, you won’t be included in the draw – that will ensure we don’t send fish to anyone that doesn’t want them.

The fish will be sent directly to you by courier at the clubs expense.

Obviously, only available to members residing within Australia.

Next Meeting

Due to the ongoing NSW restrictions on gatherings, the October meeting and November Super Auction will NOT be going ahead.

However, we WILL be meeting on Saturday 11th December Midday – 4pm at the 1st Boronia Scout Hall, 21c Farnell Street, Hunters Hill for our AGM followed by an auction and BBQ.

Due to COVID restrictions on numbers, this meeting will be limited to MEMBERS ONLY, sorry!

Competition Prizes

At the March Committee Meeting, we reviewed our prizes and decided upon a few changes, based upon member uptake.

The Members Draw will continue to be a $25 e-voucher, but can now be either spent on goods from the trade table, online shop or used during meeting auctions.

The draw will take place at general meetings, in front of the members going forward.

New Poster

If you attended the last National Convention in Melbourne, you may have seen a new rainbowfish poster put together by Greg Wallis with photos taken by Gunther Schmida.
We now have a stock of these amazing posters that can be bought with or without membership. Head over to the Shop page to order or grab one at the next meeting.

ANGFA NSW Inc recently lodged an objection to a DA proposal for a seniors home near the site and has thankfully resulted in the application being refused…some breathing space until the next attempt!
