December General Meeting - Holiday Party and Awards

Downtown Aquarium

Event Open to Members and Their Guests

CAS Holiday Party and Awards

A T T E N T I O N CAS MEMBERS

December Meeting: Holiday Party, Awards, and Gift Exchange

The Holiday Party is open to members and their guests.

Our Holiday Party for December will be held:
Date: December 7, 2013 Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Downtown Aquarium
Map: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Downtown+Aquarium&hl=en&cid=5731122937697157734&gl=US&t=m&z=16&iwloc=A
Cost: $15.00 per person
Menu: Your choice of-
Grilled Atlantic Salmon
Broiled Crab Stuffed Shrimp
Key Lime Chicken
Top Sirloin & Shrimp
All meals will come with rice (except sirloin which will have mashed potatoes), salad, bread and coffee, tea or soda and chef's dessert.
Reservations are required!
We have 60 seats available. Half have already been filled. Reserve by calling Larry and Keann at 303.659.8084. Reservations MUST be made by Thanksgiving!
Also available is a reduced entry ($13.95) to the aquarium itself that can be purchased at the door.
Anyone who would like to participate in our ‘White Shark’ gift exchange should bring an un-wrapped fish related gift in a paper bag (preferably brown paper bag). These gifts are very fun and while there is not any limits on price range, they usually value between $5 and $20 and are in some way fish related, though they do not need to be aquarium supplies. The unlabeled and un-wrapped gifts are placed on a table and numbers are drawn to participate. When your number is called, you have the option to pick a new gift from the table or “steal” a gift from someone else. Once a gift has been held by the same person three times, they keep the gift and it can no longer be stolen. When all the gifts are taken from the table, each participating person will have a gift and the game is over. (It may sound complicated, but it is really easy when you see it in action, and is a really fun time.)
Also, CAS awards will be announced and given out during the party.
For More Information Contact CAS.

Bowl Show:
The Championship Bowl Show will be held in January.
DO NOT BRING FISH to the December Holiday Party.

RMCA Fall Auction

First Plymouth Congregational Church
3501 South Colorado Blvd
Englewood, CO 80123

Not a CAS Sponsored Event

Bring the fruits of your hard work so that others can reward you for it!

http://www.rmcichlid.org/

2013 Fall Auction: Saturday, November 2nd at the First Plymouth Congregational Church, 3501 South Colorado Blvd, Englewood, CO 80123. This is at the southwest corner of Colorado and Hampden. The auction will begin at 11:00 with the doors opening at 9:00 for sellers to register auction, “buy it now” and quick sale items. Viewing of auction items begins at 10:00. Please feel free to download, print and distribute the Auction Flyers: Full Size Auction Flyer, Postcard Auction Flyer.

The complete auction rules are available for download here.

Tips for first timers:

Plan for a long day. Many times our auctions will last into the early evening, with only a few short breaks. Styrofoam lined boxes are not provided by the club, so bringing your own is highly recommended. The space is not temperature controlled, and your purchases will be much more comfortable if you keep them in an insulated container. Many local fish stores will give you a styro-lined box if you ask, and standard coolers used for camping will work, too. We want you to be comfortable, have a lot of fun, and spend a lot of
money!!!
