Hi Gang,

We will be holding our regular May 2016 James River Aquarium Society Monthly Meeting Wednesday,
May 25th at 7:00 PM at the Department of Game and Inland fisheries (DGIF’s) facility located at 7870 Villa Park Drive, Henrico, VA 23228. DGIF is in Suite 400 and the DGIF Board Room’s after hours’ entry door is easily visible from the parking lot in the front of the building. Any questions contact Dennis Bragg, Cell/Text: (804) 690-2152.

About our May 25th Program: "Tropical Fish and Aquatic Plant Jeopardy!”

Jeopardy! is an American television game show created by Merv Griffin. The show features a quiz competition in which contestants are presented with general knowledge clues in the form of answers, and must phrase their responses in the form of questions. We, and many other aquatic societies, use a team variant of Jeopardy. The central “theme,” but not entirety of this Jeopardy event, will be “tiny fish.” Bring your thinking caps as we will be playing an aquatic Jeopardy-style game involving freshwater and saltwater aquarium topics.

About This Month’s Meeting
As usual, there will be a prize drawing at this meeting for our members. See Chuck McClung, Membership Chair, for details. The JRAS Membership Committee is usually at our meeting a few minutes early for those who want to pay their dues for a 2016 Membership and be eligible for the prize drawing at this meeting.

JRAS Monthly Pre-Meeting Dinner Gathering at Frida’s Mexican Restaurant
As usual, we will again be inviting all our members to dine with us at 5:30 pm just before our Wednesday Monthly Membership Meeting. We always have a group of JRAS attendees / hungry diners between 5:30 and 6 pm to socialize / eat, and share aquatic information. Frida’s Mexican Restaurant is located very near our meeting site at 910 East Parham Road, Richmond, VA23228. Join us if you can -- we always have fun, and the food is inexpensive and very good! For more than a few of us it is the only way that we can eat before arriving at our 7 pm meeting as many of us are coming directly from work or would rather not go home before coming to the meeting.

JRAS Future Monthly Meeting Programs:
Note: Usually our monthly meetings start at 7:00 PM and almost all are held at the Department of Game and Inland fisheries’ (DGIF’s) facility located at 7870 Villa Park Drive, Henrico, VA 23228. DGIF is in Suite 400. The DGIF Board Room’s after hour’s entry door is easily visible from the parking lot in the front of the building.

Future Monthly Meeting Programs / Looking Ahead:
We have a renowned speaker for our October meeting due to his being in Northern Virginia for a major catfish convention and Michael Barber’s (PVAS Treasurer) help. See Ian’s bio below as a “teaser” for our October meeting. This meeting will, necessarily however, be held on the second Wednesday of October due to Ian’s being in the US for the All-Aquarium Catfish Convention being held in Herndon, VA from October 13-16 (https://www.facebook.com/catfishcon). We rarely move meetings from the 4th Wednesday, but thought it justified in this case.

Our upcoming 2016 and one 2017 meeting(s):

June 22nd
July 27th
August 24th
Sept 28th
October* 12th                     (the 2nd Wednesday in October) due to speaker availability
Nov* 16thth                    (the 3rd Wednesday of November) due to Thanksgiving)
Decr* 10th                             Annual Holiday Party (the 2nd Saturday, due to Christmas holidays).
January 25, 2017           Michael Barber “Catching Killifish in Peru”          

Mark your remaining 2016 calendar for our monthly meetings!

The following program topics, among others, are planned over the following 12 months: “All about Corydoras” (Ian Fuller), “New World Cichlids,” “Rare Cryptocorynes,” “Ecology of the Planted Aquarium” (Diana Walstad!), “Fish Aggression,” “Coralline Propagation, “Collecting Killifish in Peru” (January 2017).

Most of our monthly meetings take place at our usual meeting site at The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries’ 7870 Villa Park Drive, Henrico, VA 23228. (*Note exceptions below.)

Should you know of any other topics, or willing saltwater, freshwater, or natural conservation speakers, please let us know about them as we are always on the lookout for great program topics and speakers!
