Program:
John Boylan-- Collecting in Panama


Business:
1) The next show on the calendar is the big one--the AKA Convention. And this year it's just up the road in Portland, Oregon. With airline fares and gas prices coming down it makes spending the Memorial Day weekend in Portland even that more inviting. I know a number of people from BAKA are planning to attend what should be a fantastic event. Hope to see you all there.

Auction: Tentative list. There will be additional entries from the SAKE show last weekend.

If you are planning to bring fish to the auction, please contact info@sfbaka.net

BAKA July 19, 2008 Meeting
Posted by sfbaka on 2008/7/1 0:49:45 (2909 reads)


Fundulopanchax amieti

Our next meeting will be a daytime picnic in the park.

When: Saturday, July 19, 2008. From 12 Nooon to 4:30 PM.

Where:
Sulphur Creek Park
1801 D Street
Hayward, CA


View Larger Map



Activities:
There will be no formal program. This is a potluck picnic. As we get closer to the meeting, we can figure out the details for food & drinks.

We'll socialize and talk fish as usual and we'll have an auction around 3pm.

Here are some websites about the park:
http://www.lilaguide.com/reviews/sulphur-creek-nature-center-496545.aspx
http://local.thenestbaby.com/ListingView.aspx?lid=496545&scid=9635455
http://parents.berkeley.edu/recommend/places/sulphurcreek.html

The park hours are from 10 am to 4:30 pm, hence the reason for us to meet earlier.

Sulfur creek only reserves picnic areas for birthday parties that include animal
programs, so we won't be able to have reserved tables.

We'll have to show up early and grab the non-reserved tables. The naturalist
who talked to Doug said that we should send somebody down to look at the site and
determine what we should bring along, but there should be plenty of room for us,
but on a non-reserved area.

Doug also suggested that we should plan to bring our own barbecue grill just in
case there is not one available. (I'm planning to bring pre-cooked foods myself)
We can also bring a few of our own tables and chairs, or just big blankets that
we can sit on.

If someone local to the East Bay can check out the site before July 19th, it'd
be great.

Auction:

Aplocheilus kirchmayeri "P-03"

Aphyosemion bivittatum "CI 06"
Aphyosemion elberti "Bafoussam"

Archiaphyosemion petersi "Banco Park"

Epiplathys annulatus "CI Sierra Leone 08"

Fundulopanchax gardneri "Jos Plateau"
Fundulopanchax spoorenbergi

Scriptaphyosemion etzeli "Bundulai SL89"
