***GSAS B-I-G Annual General Auction - 2018***

***GSAS B-I-G Annual General Auction - 2018***



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

This is no "small time auction", last year over 800 items were auctioned in a little over 5-1/2 hours, over 2 items per minute! 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 WA prohibited plants).

You must be a member to sell; everyone can buy: cash and credit cards are accepted; for GSAS members personal checks are also accepted

Our auction will be held at a new location this year! It will be at the Bitter Lake Community Center Gymnasium, 13035 Linden Ave N, Seattle, WA. The community center is conveniently located just off Aurora Ave N. at N. 130th St.

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

The auction is Saturday, April 21st; the auction starts at 10:00 until ??. Registration and Check-in starts at 9:00; item 'bumping' and early check-out are 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, Dick Au, Ted Judy, Christel Kasselmann, Mike Wise, Greg Sage, Ian Fuller, Rusty Wessel, Juan Asas, Dr. Paul Loiselle, Mark Duffill, and Barbie Fiorentino just to name a few. Please help us to continue to bring these world class speakers to the Seattle area!

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

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

Hi All,

Just a reminder that the GSAS Big Annual Auction is two weeks from today. Already we have 50 items pre-registered will be beat last year's record of 800 items......you will have to show up to find out!

Help GSAS continue to bring great speakers to the Northwest for all to enjoy - show up and support your local club! For instance, coming up in May and June are:

Ad Konings - African Cichlids - May 8th meeting
Gary Lange - Rainbowfish - June 12th meeting - Most recent collecting trip to Papua - Did he find new species again?

Just (re) joined the GSAS and very much looking forward to this, have two long idle tanks (40b and a random spare eclipse 12) that I'm looking to get started and the timing couldn't be better. As an added bonus, you happened to choose a location minutes from me for this one...

Hey DonJoe,

You will likely recognize several of our members, but the club has grown a lot in the last 10 years so there will be many new faces as well! At the auction just ask Christine or Deb at the check-in desk to point out Roy, I look forward to meeting you.

Hi All,

200 items registered and climbing quickly even with 3 days to go. Don't forget that the auction is this Saturday (it's going to be rainy so you can't do anything outside anyway) and I hope to see you there!

Come hang with fellow fish enthusiasts, have fun, find bargains, and support the club that brings great international speakers to the Northwest for all to enjoy including Ad Konings (May 8th) and Gary Lange (June 12th).

I know of a 120 gallon set up that will be auctioned along with donations from our very generous GSAS Sponsor Stores; here are some of the items you will see:
