TFSRI Fall Auction and Show


Sept 7-8, Cumberland RI

More details to come, but I've been told the auction is all day Sunday, and the show will include a planted tank category.

Any questions? Just ask, I can probably find the answer.

I got a couple questions:
Do you have to be a member?

Will it be worth a 2 hour drive?

Do you have to be a member? - No

Will it be worth a 2 hour drive? - That depends a lot on your idea of "worth it." I have no idea what people will be bringing to the auction, but I should know more after our next meeting.

Nice to hear about the planted tank catagory. I'll try to go unless there is a soccer game that day, had a blast at the spring auction. I drove up from south county and it was worth it for sure.

Shamelessly stolen from TFSRI.net (Sorry, no times yet.):

The annual TFSRI Show and Auction is scheduled for September 6th - 8th at St Joseph Church hall (located behind the church) in Cumberland, RI. "Same location as last year". You don't want to miss this one!
Come out an enjoy the weekend with friendly people, good food and lots of auction deals.

St. Josephs Parish Center 1303 Mendon Road (Route 122) Cumberland, RI 02864 (MAP)

I do believe that load in for show participants is as early as 3pm Friday.

Also all show entries can be made by members an non-members alike! Your first entry is $2 and all subsequent entries are $1. There are three prizes for each category 1st: $20; 2nd: $10; and 3rd: $5. Planted tanks are not eligible for best of show, but I believe there will be a people voice award for that category. There are a whole bunch of categories including inverts and the planted tank category! A flyer should be posted on tfsri.net shortly and I'll link to that once it's up.

I'd love to see folks enter the planted tank category so we can ensure the category next year!

I'm hoping to have some cherries to add to the auction, maybe some moss.. But I've got Val's, rotala nanjeshan, eichhornia diversifolia and pennywort I'm pretty sure will be auctioned off. Depending on the size of my juvie gudgeons some of them might be on the block.

No the Auction is only Sunday.

Load in for the show is Friday, Show viewing is open both Saturday and Sunday until noon (I believe, I'm not sure I left the flyer on the table last after the meeting last night.)

The show is just about 3wks away. I was wondering if anyone was planning on entering a planted tank. Also, tattooed - I know you work Sundays, but if there's something you know you want I can see if I can place some bids for you.

I don't know. I imagine not. I don't think many folks would want to be bagged up Saturday to hang out overnight and not get sold until sometime Sunday.
