  14. At the QFAS meeting held last Wednesday night a new Auction rule was proposed and accepted. All Sellers MUST be on stage assisting while there items are being auctioned. There are a number of advantages with this new rule not just for the organizers but also for the buyers and sellers, here are just a few; Advantage number one - one less volunteer needed for the auction. Advantage number two - if a seller needs to lower the reserve then there is no need to go looking for them. Advantage number three - the auctioneer can tell the owner what problems there are with fish first hand ( sick, too small etc) Advantage number four - buyers can see who the seller / breeder is. Advantage number five - sellers can see if auctioneers are missing bid and point them out to the auctioneer. Advantage number six - the seller knows exactly what fish are passed in and can collect their boxes immediately. This rule will be introduced at the next QFAS Auction in November. At present QAH, QCG and GCAS have not discussed if they will introduce it for their auctions. As soon as I hear anything I will post it. Graeme

  16. Hi all who's going and what are you taking ?
  17. Hey guys, As you know the QFAS market day is coming up. having an event for those members down south Brisbane and Goldie this is fantastic location. I would like to seek feedback about the idea of having a joint QLDAF table. Obviously all the rules of the QFAs event would have to be followed. We would expect any involved members to be responsible for there own float (have money for change). Depending on how many members are interested we may need to limit number of lots to be sold to ensure all have a fair go. Please either indicate interest here or shoot me a PM. If we have sufficient interest QLDAF will fund the table. Regards, Steve
  18. Queensland Federation of Aquarium Societies Invites you to participate in the; “2nd Q.F.A.S. Great Treasure Hunt” Saturday 21st JUNE 2014. The “Great Treasure Hunt” is all about having fun and enjoying the company of other aquarium enthusiasts. You will be travelling to a number of different aquariums shops, both north and south of the city. For lunch there will be a sausage sizzle in a park where there will also be some activities. Finishing off the day everyone will meet at a final destination for BBQ dinner and presentation of prizes. PRIZES ? Yes there will be prizes, lots of them, last year we had over $1000.00 worth. There will be prizes awarded for all sorts of things including; the person with most Treasure’s collected off the list, the most correct answers and heaps of others. Each of the shops you will visit has kindly donated at least one prize. There will be two groups, those starting on the north side of Brisbane and those starting on the south side of Brisbane. Each group will start at the location furthest out and work their way in to a central location for lunch. After lunch each group will swap sides of town and travel to the furthest location out, then work their way back to a different location for the presentation and dinner. At every location you will be asked to complete an activity to obtain your next clue envelope. Each envelope contains directions to follow that will tell you how to get to your next location. You should read these carefully before setting off to the next location. This is a Treasure hunt and you will need to collect some Treasure’s along the way. The list of Treasure’s you need to collect is enclosed in the first clue envelope. This can be obtained after completing the activity at the first location. There will be at least one Treasure, you need to collect, at every location you visit. Make sure you have a digital camera (most mobile phones now have built in cameras) as you will require one to collect some of the treasures. Yes they are photos. You can travel by yourself but it is recommended to work as a group of at least two (2), it is up to you. Along the way your instructions will contain some simple questions, which you will need to record on an answer sheet, so read the questions carefully and watch out for the answers While travelling around we have allowed enough time for you to spend at least 30 minutes at each shop so take your time and have a good look around. You never know you may find that bargin (Treasure) you have been looking for. Travelling time between each location will vary from 15 minutes to just over 30 minutes. At no stage will you asked to travel on any toll roads, or tunnels. The starting time is up to you but if you start any later than 10:00am you will not be able to spend time having a good look in each shop and you may miss lunch which will only be available between 11.30am and 1.30pm in the park. The BBQ dinner will start at 5.00pm and be followed by the prize presentations. If you are interested and wish to participate just email gday@firstclassaccounts.com before 11.00pm on the Wednesday 18th June 2014, giving your name and your suburb and how many will be in your group for catering purposes. You will receive your first set on instructions by return email on Friday night 20th June 2014.
