Activities -

Information about our activities


Mini/Silent Auctions -

This is to benefit our members. Bring your fish for auction. We’ll have a place both in the forum and Facebook page where you can list the fish you are bringing.  There’s a sheet that sellers will need to bring with them.  You can download that sheet here - Auction Sellers Sheet.  This is for everyone to sell.  CAAS members get 100% of their profits from the auction. Non-paying members take a 70/30% split with the club.






Club Raffle -

Each month our sponsors and members and such donate fish or fish related items for raffle. The tickets then are for anyone to buy. The tickets are - $3.00 per single ticket. $20 for 10 tickets and $30 for 20 tickets.  This is to benefit the club, raise money for bringing in our speakers and such.






Swap Meets -

A few times a year, we will host a swap meet. This is described by a CAAS member as lots of tables with sellers, buyers and traders.  Oh sounds fun!!!






Christmas Party -

Each December CAAS hosts a Christmas party. It’s a potluck, so everyone brings a food related item.  We’ll have an RSVP each time so that the food is well covered and not all desserts! Then we have a white elephant gift exchange. Gifts shouldn’t cost more than $15. Catch, they need to be aquatic related!






Annual Auction -

These are our yearly big time auction. Clubs from all over the area come and bring things for dry good auction and of course our fish and plants. Club split is CAAS Members - 70/30% and Non-CAAS Members 60/40%  and yes, there will be food!
