What about my "celebrity" auction off, of a prize I picked off the raffle table (using my boss's ticket) and donated the proceeds toward the Cichlid Preservation Fund?

 

$5 and some shrapnel. I haven't caught your names yet, but thank you for your generosity.

 

 And I can honestly say and I know it will go to Mattia's head, that it was one of the best talks (both PCS and ANGFA WA) I've attended. I bet he was nervous too.

 

Great work to all the PCS committee too.

Would have to agree, one of the best presentations I've seen in a long time. It reminded me of the Spencer Jack talk a few years back.
A little comedy and a heap of info, great stuff Mattia & PCS.

Also would like to say there seems like a change in the air, everyone on the Committee looked happy and fresh.
Awesome to see some old regulars and some new faces too.
I might have to show my face more often.

Thanks again guys, great job. Keep it up.

A word on the Stuart Grant fund, for those who don't know who he is. Stuart was one of the first exporters of cichlids out of Africa and has had a fish farm in Malawi for many years, he also has found a lot of new species and has a few named after him ( Aulonocara stuartgranti) Unfortunately he passed away a few years back :(
If it wasn't for Stuart's efforts and dedication for the hobby you certainly wouldn't see the cichlids we have today in the hobby.
Please try to donate as much a you can.

We didn't film it sorry. I guess that means it would be a PCS Meeting exclusive B) .

 

Maybe Mattia might post some of it up for you guys.

Mattia, :welldone: :goodjob: and :ThanxSmiley:  you da man.

 

Yes i second what Az said , i feel the PCS has finally found it's purpose in life with the Stuart Grant foundation and i urge everyone that truely cares about cichlids to get behind it with 100% support. A truely worthy cause and a great way to say thankyou Stuart Grant for bringing these lovely cichlids into our lives. I'd also like to say thankyou to Aquotix for there support to the hobby and the PCS, it was nice to see most of the shop in attendance. You indeed have some wonderful and passionate staff working for you and it's a credit to you. Some of the Best and informative talks have been given by your staff ( Rovik, Mattia ) :welldone: :goodjob:  and :ThanxSmiley:
