  3. Chuckie added a post in a topic: Notice of resignation of presidency   

    Hi guys! I have emailed the Society's members already about this, but thought I should post this here as well for anyone who is not yet a member of the Society but who attends our meetings and supports the club via raffle participation and other fundraising.

    As you know, the Society’s AGM is being held this weekend at Lidcombe. At that time, I shall be resigning as president of the Society, and seeking nominations for the role of president going forward.

    I have really enjoyed my time as president of the Society since its inception 3 years ago, setting up the club and getting it up and running. However, I no longer own any fish, and a number of competing priorities have arisen for me over the last couple of years. I now need to pass the mantle onto someone with the time and enthusiasm to take the Society into the future.

    So, please give some consideration to who you would like to see as president of the Society for 2012/2013, and - if you're a member - come along on Saturday ready to vote!

    If you are interested in nominating yourself for the role of president, or accepting a nomination, please be aware that because the club is an incorporated association, committee members have legal obligations and reporting responsibilities. You will also need to be willing to execute the paperwork necessary to become the club’s Public Officer, who is legally responsible for the activities of the club.

    I look forward to seeing as many of you on Saturday as are able to attend, and finding out who our new president will be!

    You're welcome to just bring yourself, and maybe a snack or drink to share, Bwidjaja1.

    @ Sarah, the last AGM was 16.10.11! Time flies

    At the AGM, members are able to vote for the committee for next year. After several years' great service, Nick, our treasurer, will be stepping down, and we thank him very kindly. As we will need a new treasurer, please consider nominating for the role!! It largely entails keeping track of incoming and outgoing funds, and preparing a profit and loss report for the annual AGM.

    I have edited the initial post to reflect the new start time of 12pm.

    Hello Everyone! The SSS AGM will be on 6.10.12 at 12pm.

    Stay tuned for details!

    If anyone would like to spread the word online, please go for it!

    If you have a topic you'd like to do a brief presentation on, please do!

    I will bring beanie boxes so we can have another table show.

    Was that my tank that leaked Alysha? If so I'm so sorry, I never would have sold it if I thought it leaked. I will refund what you paid for it, of course!

    Thanks everyone for your kind words, I had a great time and it was good to see old friends and meet new ones!

    Paul, I hope you can make it in October. The meeting will be at David's, and his fish room is amazing!

    Btw my name's Lisa and my forum name is Lilli. If you call me either, I don't mind :)

    I took some extremely quick and grainy shots today, just to give people an idea of what things looked like. None of the photos of the bettas do them justice. Hopefully someone had a chance to take some better photos. We had a pretty tight timeframe, which didn't permit much photography.

    The album is here. The photos are captioned as to which fish won what. You can also view it as a slideshow:

    That will be cool . We decided to leave the judging of the grooming comp fish til you could be there. Paige couldn't bring hers so it made sense to wait.

    I have some photos, will hopefully be able to post them soon.

    Sure. It's not a formal show, everyone, just an informal table show. So bring your fish to show off and it's just a bit of fun :)

    Thank you for all the lovely birthday messages, here and by phone :-), and for helping me celebrate. What's great about having friends and relatives in the northern hemisphere is that I feel like I get 2 birthdays! I have had a fantastic birthday weekend so far, and today I'm catching up with family for a nice lunch. I am very lucky to know all of you!

    I rather like the swirl effects I have been getting lately in the soap! Does anyone have any suggestions for colour combinations I could add to my list?

    1. gulp

      Yellow and purple?

      Mint green and a pale purple look nice together, so does pale creamy orange and ice blue.

    Hello Lilli, I was recommended to you by Celeste84. Ur from the Sydney Spendlens right? If so, I was looking for a CT breeder in Sydney. I didn't find any but got some CT at my LFS. I was told there is not one CT breeder in Sydney. Is this true? If so, when I get started I'll be the only one. Also, whens the next meeting coming up?? Thanks, from Sarah. :D
