Members-only Bag Exchange January 17th

Members-only Bag Swap

‍GCCA is holding a Bag Exchange in the heated garage of GCCA member Mike Helford in Glenview, IL.

Bring up to six bags of fish (no more than two bags per species) and receive a raffle ticket for each bag.

‍Raffle numbers will be called in random order. When your name is called, you can choose a bag from what is available!

‍This is a great way to move out some fish and bring home some new ones!

Bring your BAP fish, too!

NOTE: Attendees may not enter the home or use the restroom due to COVID.

Social Distance, Please!

GCCA insists that you wear a mask and maintain distance from other individuals. Please practice social distancing.

Staying Safe

Cold Precautions

Please use larger size bags which preserve heat better. Bring a heat pack for your fish to keep them warm on the ride. Do not put out your fish until instructed to do so by GCCA personnel.

  2. Only GCCA paid members may participate.
