December 9th, Speaker: Rob McLure: "An Overview of Spawning, Husbandry & Raising of Corydoradinae fish"
Rob will try to update you with the latest Corydoras news, let you know what Corydoras big and small like to eat, and show you breeding tips and tricks that have worked. The talk will show even the most dedicated aquarists something new about the Corydoradinae group and challenge you with Cory trivia!
BIO: Currently lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He has managed to breed nearly 40 species in the Corydoradinae group to date, many of those multiple times. Rob was introduced to Corydoras when his father bought a few "Julii catfish" at a local pet shop for his younger sister "Julie". After a spawning spree of breeding 25 different fish in one year, out of all the fish spawned that year, the Corydoras paleatus were by far the most fun. Three years later he has more than 80 types of Corydoradinae fish in his home and likely qualifies as an addict of some sort!
Our Holiday Party is Saturday January 14th from Noon - 4:00pm. Please RSVP to Scott Graner

HOLIDAY PARTY EVENTS.
Rules for fish raffle;
1. Tickets are $1 per ticket
2. We ask that it be a bag of fish with a value of at least $10. A key here is to remember that if it would be something you'd be willing to spend at least $10 on the bag at a normal auction.
3. If you donate an item you will receive 10 free tickets for the raffle (minimum suggested value for your donation)

January 2017 GPASI Meeting
Friday January 27th, 2017
ELECTIONS for 2017 Board of Directors
After the elections, we will have our regular monthly auction, raffle, membership drawing, 50/50 and refreshments as normal.
The auction is normally a little larger at this meeting as it will be couple months since anyone had been able to thin out their tanks....so bring some extra cash!
In addition to some special announcements, Eric will give a run down on what the speaker line up is looking like for 2016.
You may also hear from our BAP and AHAP chairs as well.
January Buck-A-Bag Auction
Here is your chance to make some good money at a monthly meeting! Rather than the usual 70/30 split, the club will only keep $1 for each item sold in the auction, the seller keeps the rest! (Example: An item sells for $30, the club keeps $1 and the seller gets $29). All the standard rules of our Spring, Fall and Monthly Meeting Auctions apply, (name, sellers code, contact info, etc.) With one exception; there is a 10 item limit, per paid membership number, that you can auction off.
