President's Message


CAOAC Convention is coming quickly

Elections will soon be upon us so if anybody has a person they feel would make an addition to the present executive put their name or your name in the running. I have had an amazing time as President and have had the most helpful executive any President could ever have. They have made my job very easy. So if you are the person who feels he can make the change please step forward and add your name before the next CAOAC meeting or Contact Peter De Sousa, he is the person on the Steering Committee. Thanks to all. I know there are going to be a few openings on the present executive. Itís a lot of fun and you learn quite a bit from working on a great association to enhance making our hobby bigger and better for the future hobbyists.

I am sorry for missing the Hamilton event as we were unavailable. The Hamilton show and auction was a lot of fun and got a few great messages from some of the people who were there. I heard some people got some great deals on some new fish for their fish room. They had a chance to meet with old friends and catch up with the good and the bad of the long winter. There is always lots of fun at whatever you are doing. There are lots of things going on please check the event calendar.

I would like to make a Presidents Challenge to the entire club Presidents to make a donation to the prize table at the convention. This has been done for a lot of years and it makes it more fun if some people win something. So if all the clubs make a donation we should have a nice prize table.

Thank you to Ed for another fantastic crock pot full of clam chowder . All that were there got a belly full. The draws have been a lot of fun and we will continue with them. It is always nice when you can win something to take home. Thank you to all that have donated.

If your club has not sent a rep to the meetings you are missing out on all the news and goings on in the association. It opens doors to many with ideas and experiences and we can learn from the expertise of others. The CAOAC website is constantly being upgraded with information about all that CAOAC has to offer all the member clubs.

The task of next yearís CAOAC Convention will again be done by the CAOAC Executive as no club made it known by the March CAOAC meeting. If you know your club is interested hosting the convention in 2020. This gives the club lots of time to prepare and plan the convention. Please get in touch with the executive and make it known. Or come to the CAOAC meeting and present your clubs bid. It is a lot of fun doing the planning and there is always lots of people to assist. So please take the time to consider putting on the show.

Hope you got your ticket and room booked it sounds like we are going to have a fun weekend

Take a chance

Ron Bishop
President CAOAC
