What a great auction!

I got to meet some of the regulars here (always great to put faces to names), bought some really cool fish and invertebrates, and got advice from informed hobbyists. JRAS put on a very good event and those who were able to attend appreciate it.

The second annual JRAS All-Day Auction was a big success!  

There were literally hundreds of items up for bidding, or so it seemed, and many of them were unusual plants.  As the day went along even more people showed up to see what was on offer, and then stayed to bid.  Very few items did not sell, and at the end of the day we had only a few tag sale items left over.  

Working the auction didn't leave me a lot of time to bid on anything, but I got a couple of chances here and there. Sadly, I didn't get the shrimp I was after, but there will be other chances! In the end I bought a very nice 48" T-5 twin tube fixture, a slimline model in excellent shape for $15. You can't beat that.  

It was great to see the very familiar club members that I see often, and also great to meet some new folks traveling from PVAS and RAS. Two members of GWAPA (Greater Washington Aquatic Plants Association) arrived early, with all sorts of plants to donate. I had met them previously at one of their meetings, so it was fun to see them again and to pick their brains about good choices of low-light carpet plants.

I hope everyone from here who attended had a good time! Very Happy

I'd like to, @gerald, but it's my birthday and my husband has planned a trip for us.sunny
The JRAS event had a nice contingent from RAS, more than I would have thought.  We all appreciate the effort that they made to make the trip. Hope they had a good time; I talked to one guy who bought some red hooks in the tag sale, and he seemed to be having fun. Wink
