The next event is slated for november 9th at the Brooklyn aquarium. The 50/50 auctioning is only for bas members but non members are allowed to bid. Their website hasn't been updated since sept so either then venue is still on or it has been postponed or relocated and it hasn't been reflected on the site yet.

actually I was thinking of that yesterday, just didn't get a chance to email the pres.
Will do so now before I forget, I'll let you guys know if there is still a meeting. The aquarium proper was destroyed, don't know about the trailer we meet in, I can't imagine it's still standing. My mother lives just a few blocks before the aquarium, the area was very hard hit.

just checked BAS on fb. The Education Hall is still standing. I'm really shocked,it's right on the board walk,practically on the beach. However they don't know if there's going to be a meeting. Joe is going to speak with the people at the aquarium this week and let us know. I'll keep you posted, or I'm sure everyone can find BAS on fb too. There are 2 fb pages for them, just go to the one with the cartoon like fish for the avatar.

Got an email last night, the meeting at BAS is called off. In fact the aquarium is closed till the spring because of all the damage done by the storm.

Anyone get to the Greater NY meeting last night? I'll try for their Dec. meeting if they have one.

I know, I'm going. Should be some good fish this time around. Were you at the last meeting? There were some really good deals, seemed like no one wanted to spend their money. I got mr.limpets spike tailed paradise fish for $5! 3 of them,I was the only bidder.
