JRAS will be holding its September 23rd meeting as a ZOOM MEETING, for our second virtual meeting during this pandemic.
When we mention David Snell, most of you think of Dave as our ever prominent Auctioneer. Dave has done a stellar job of being our official auctioneer during our larger events, so he is well known throughout the mid atlantic fish clubs. One of the other areas Dave has been very interested in is photographing his fish, tanks and documenting some of his various collecting trips. He spoke with the JRAS folks about 4 years ago, This may be a very good topic to embrace right now with the ever present heath issues and the fact that we are not able to show off our fish and aquariums as easily to others. Maybe we can embrace some of his ideas to show off our hobby to other members through our new website. In the forum section, you can post photos in the "GALLERY" link.
here is the ZOOM invite and link to attend the meeting:
