Boston Aquarium Meeting Monday 7/15/2013 8 pm - PIZZA PARTY!

Hey, MA tpt!

Again it's my monthly reminder for everyone to come to the Boston Aquarium society meeting! And this time, YOU SHOULDN'T MISS THIS MEEETING!

Next monday, its BAS's annual Buck a bag auction and yearly elections. Even if you are not a member, feel free to go! There will be PIZZA!

For those of you that isn't familar with the buck a bag auction. How it works is that in normal meetings, if you bring in one item, and your item sells for $18 bucks. You get 9 bucks, club gets 9 bucks. Its a 50/50 split.

For the buck a bag, if your item sells for $18, you get $17, the club gets $1. No matter how much you sell it for, the club will only take 1 dollar.

So, bring all your trimmings, useless decorations, tanks (BRING some 2.5 gallon tansk! I NEED 2), shrimps (victor should bring your yellows! =D), fishes, etc, etc.

Also if you are looking to buy, there will likely be lots of things in auction, because everyone will be bringing things. There will be more items being auctioned than people bidding, so everything will go pretty cheap.

It will also be a great time for us MA tpt-ers to hang out! =D and talk about how algae is taking over my HC carpet.

I'm hoping to get there this month, assuming I have time to get home, bag fish, and get there.

Does the auction stay open for awhile? I work 30 min away, but get out at 8pm. Then find parking, etc.

Do we have to be a member?

Multiple planted tanks 1.75g to 55g.
