I was saying that the club isn't what it was, I don't know if you were here in the 90's but those classics were impressive, as were the auctions, the last classics just got smaller and less interesting, as for the hobby changing yes everything changes, but look as Ohio's extravaganza it looks like they might have the recipe....

I am pretty sure the club is not at the same level as its heyday, but neither is the hobby.

That being said

The GCCA had more BAP's last year than any other year as well getting the ACA award for Breeder of the year and wining the ACA award for the club with the most BAPs (Thanks Mario and Matt)

The club had an amazing Holiday Party and Picnic (some noted that the Holiday Party was the best ever)

The club ran the Aquatic Experience ACA Cichlid show where our very own Mario won $500 for first place and where Cichlids were put on display for over 6000 attendees, more than every other Classic combined. It was a great show and a lot workers were given some nice donations.

The club has two members only Auctions that are extremely successful and are bigger than they have ever been.

The club has the most active fish classifieds system of any Cichlid club and potentially of any other club period, as well as a robust online presence and an active facebook group.

Last and certainly not least, the club has five swaps a year (which I believe may be the largest fish swaps in the United States ) and 10 meetings per year.

Thats an awful lot of accomplishments and events but hey, I am not bragging.

Sam - A Pig and a Chicken are walking down the road. The Chicken says, "Pig, I was thinking we should open a restaurant!". Pig replies, "What would we call it?". The Chicken responds, "How about ham-n-eggs?" The Pig thinks for a moment and says, No thanks. I'd be committed, but you'd only be involved.

Any time you want to step up and be a Pig let us know if not stop squawking :)

Cheers,
Jason

That's too bad seems like the club is a shell of what it was....

Well it was good while it lasted. Won't be planning any trips up unless there is a Greenwater event.

At this point the club is not going to put on the classic in 2017. You may not agree with the reasons but the cost was over $$$$$ and very few people attended.

We are focusing on the Fish Show at the Aquatic Experience and focusing our efforts on the meetings and swaps.
