President's Message


October 2017

Don‘t eat too much Turkey,

I have noticed that the attendance for the general meeting has been kind a light over the past few months. We can get a lot more done when we have representation from all the clubs and then this will stop the scuttlebutt of we never hear anything from CAOAC. Your club representative should be in attendance either by filling a chair or by using Skype to have your clubs voice heard. There are lots of things going on in all the member clubs that would wonderful if everybody knows, from Dinners and Guest Speakers and a whole bunch of other events, from the west coast to the east coast. So come out and join us and have your voice be heard.

The Pet Expo has come and gone and was a lot of hard work to those who looked after the booth. A special thank you to Grant Crossman, for his donation and all his work in the various hobbies and pet people in the industry.

I hope everybody has had a chance to take in some of the Fall Auctions and Shows. The competition in the shows has been exciting. The London Aquaria Society had their show at the end of September. The turnout was down but all in all there was some great fish. The Auction was well attended as well as lots of great bargains for all. Hamilton Auction was a lot of fun and then Kitchener and then St Catharines then to Peel. Plenty of miles, and lots of great deals. It is always nice to see old friends and meet new ones; this is one of the exciting things about our hobby.

The Executive has gotten a full slate of speakers for the 2018 CAOAC Convention and the raffle tickets are being sold for a chance to win your convention ticket. They are five dollars each and with every twenty that are sold then a draw will take place and the winner will get their convention ticket. Good luck to all. Annette has sold two complete sets of tickets and two raffles have been completed and the first winner was Bruce Hart and the second winner was Joe Prince from Hamilton. Congrats to both winners and I hope we have many more.

Also if there are interested people we need some committee people to fill some empty spots. We will be having our 50/50 Draw and the ever popular draw table so we can all either donate or buy some tickets for a chance to win what is on the tables. So come one all.

The shows and auctions are back,

Time to enjoy the fall,

Ron Bishop

President CAOAC
