GSAS B-I-G General Aquatic Auction

The Greater Seattle Aquarium Society (your local aquarium club since 1971) is having its B-I-G Annual Auction!!

There will be new and used equipment (plants/fish/substrate/lights/filters/tanks/ stands/etc) mostly freshwater but marine folk can score great deals too - we never know what will show up! Most of the plants and fish available will be locally grown: corys, killies, cichlids, shrimp, koi, common and rare aquatic plants (No plants off the “do not sell” list).

You must be a member to sell; everyone can buy: cash or personal checks preferred

Our auction will be held at a new, larger location this year. It will be at the West Seattle Christian Church Gymnasium, 4400 42nd Avenue Southwest, Seattle, WA. The church is conveniently located at the intersection of SW. Genesee St. and 42nd Ave. SW just 6 blocks from the West Seattle Bridge.

No admission charge, accessible, family friendly (but no furry/feathered pets please), lots of free parking

Saturday April 14th starts at 10:00 until ??; Registration and Check-in starts at 9:00; early check out available

The money raised at this auction helps GSAS bring world class speakers to our community for our free lecture series presented at our regular meetings on the second Tuesday of the month. In the last year we have offered presentations by Ad Konings, Karen Randall, Oliver Lucanus, Lawrence Kent, Chuck Rambo, Tom Barr, Gary Lange, and Dick Au just to name a few. Next September GSAS is pleased to sponsor a presentation by international speaker Christel Kasselmann who will be our lead off speaker for the 2012-13 season!

We are generously sponsored by many of the local fish stores and numerous aquarium supply manufacturers.

See our web page at GSAS.org for more information.

Saturday will work great. Even last night my wife gave me a hard time about taking her to our first auction on Valentine's Day. But she quickly said, "YES" when I asked her if she was going to go to April's with me.

Hi All,

Just a quick reminder that our GSAS B-I-G General Auction is tomorrow, April 14th at the West Seattle Christian Church gymnasium. The first 300 bidders in the door will receive a Foster and Smith gift bag with coupons, food, and a $20 F&S Gift Certificate.

In addition to all of the excellent corporate donations, our LFS Sponsor Stores have donated generously to our auction again this year. This is just some of what we will have:

For just a few of our GSAS Sponsor Stores


This too! 60" X 24" and 72" X 18" canopies and a 72" 3X MH 2X 96watt CFL fixture.

Hi All,

I just wanted to thank everyone that came out and supported our club yesterday. Our new, larger General Auction space worked out great and thanks to you we had record attendance, items sold, and revenue for our club! Thanks to you we will continue to be able to invite first class speakers to our meetings such as Dick Au, Ad Konings, Oliver Lucanus, Tom Barr, Karen Randall, and coming next September....Christel Kasselmann!
