ACA News August 09

Post by Mr.Firemouth » Thu Aug 13, 2009 2:42 pm

Hello Everyone!
The American Cichlid association has just finished up a great convention in Cincinnati this year and it was a great time too! There was hundreds of fish fanatics buying, selling, and showing their fish along with many great speakers!
For those of you that did not make it, check this video link...

The Annual BOT meeting lasted 6 1/2 hours this year! There was much discussed and from it will come more changes to the ACA website! Li of Monster Aquarium Networks is providing a server and helping with software changes! Keep an eye out for our new look!

There was so much going on that I won't be able to tell everything, but I will link you to some long threads! LOL
Here are some people that visited.... ... entry20494

Here are some fish that were on display...

You can find more pics at also.

The ACA Spawn of the Year challenge is a club challenge that you guys should try to win next year. This year's winner is Astatotilapia desfontainii by Greg Steeves of the Hill Country Aquarium Club.Hill Country Club took top honor last year also with Dave Hansen's Gobiocichla wonderi!

Each year the ACA members vote on the spawn of the year! Will your club win in 2010?

Pam Chin and her BABES raised $7,558.00 through all of the generous donations and purchases for the Guy Jordan fund, PVL Fund, and the Stuart Grant fund. What a great way to support the hobby!

Our next convention will be held in Milwaukee and I will keep everyone informed with updates! Speaking of conventions, the ACA is currently accepting bids for the 2011 convention! If your club is interested in hosting the 2011 convention please contact me so that I may get your club in touch with show chairman! It would be great to visit your club during the 2011 convention!

Club Liaison News.
Ted Judy is stepping down as Club Liaison and will be taking care of the 2010 convention! I will be working as the Interim Club Liaison until another person is chosen. You can contact me at [email protected] with any club questions or request. :)

Once again, thanks for all the support this club gives to the ACA!
