    Those Jehmco linear pumps are sweet. I've had one running for 20 years.

        ....a true cinematic gem--Groundhog Day. However, not quite as good as that all-time classic: Caddyshack. I have a great (and this time true) story about Punxsutawney, PA and Phil. Ask me about it sometime. Some would also say that groundhog is another name for sausage. In either case, the swap is on groundhog day. I'm not sure how i let that go unnoticed for so long. we could have had a lot of fun with that one. Thanks to our "calendar boy" Glen for bringing it to our attention.

        In more important news, thanks for gettin your list out there. The spoils of the swap skirmish will go to those that fire first and fire often. Git your table and then get your list on!! I think I'm gonna put an L in front of the names of all my fish--i think they go for more money then.

        Mr. Jerry Beagle--thanks for the plug for the pump. Given your reputation in the club for knowin your stuff, i suspect i will be able to sell it for more than i paid for it--cuz its been slightly broken in. don't tell us we gotten nuttin to do. we got a swap to blow out.

                ...ya know how you can tell its a piece of Glen's Malaysian the (you guessed it) ...bark. Somebody was asking a few weeks ago whether there was going to be any rainbows at this swap. I think the last several posts indicate that you should be able to find a lot of quality rainbows. For you buyers, these (and many of the other sellers) are very experienced hobbyists. An advantage of the swap is that you can find great quality and have an informative conversation with the breeder of the fish you are considering buying. Sometimes the advice is worth as much as the fish.

                this is a kid friendly event--great chance for them to learn a lot too!! we love the next generation in the hobby.

                did somebody say there were still a couple of indoor tables left?? yes, why yes, i think they did. come on now--let's pack that room to the gills. 3 hrs is gone in a blink and cash jumping into your pocket will set you up for the March auction. Its amazing how this can work. We just keep the fish money circulating within the hobby--the more the better. I think the economists amongst us would recognize this as part of the velocity of money theory.

                i'm sensing a bit of a dog theme emerging for this swap (please leave them at home, unless they resemble the minature ponies of several posts back).

                supposed to snow tomorrow--what better thing to do than to look up your ol PayPal pal and buy a table. Also, more lists will get the crowd linin' up at the door.

                all for now--your stuck record,

                  Eric, what kind of water are the bosmani kept in? Apologies as I tried every way possible from my phone to send an IM and am running into difficulties.

                  Upgrades and sytem updates can be rough but this one seems to be exceptionally challenging to overcome.

                    Will the new venue have access to power? I know the old place had limited outlets inside.

                      Still limited, but more consistently available throughout the room.

              , Kravitz's comment on "consistent, but still limited" for electricity only applies to those of you table buyers that will be fortunate to have bought a table inside. the rest of you last minute table buyers might not have a long enough extension cord. of course if you plan on selling frozen tuna, haddock and the like--i guess warmth is not your friend. be a fair weather fan and git your table now. next year is a long way away.

                        a word to our buyers. that's a big parking lot at Miami U Hamilton Branch (same place as the auctions) but it could fill up fast. you might want to tailgate the night before. we thought about sellin' parkin' spots--those with indoor bathroom access would have gone for a premium--but the Board of this Esteemed Club (best in all the land, btw)--said if no birds, no reptiles, no rodents, no bovine, etc. then no selling parking places. not sure how they relate--but if you look at the average age of that board--you might get a hint. Next year, valet parking. With a kid with a grocery cart haulin your full boxes right up to the car parked just outside the door and you whisking your fish home before they could even think about getting cold and certainly well before you found your car out in that packed lot. RV and camping trailer pullers--please park on the very N or W sides of the lot--that will keep the wind off the rest of us.

                        the lists are starting to populate this thread (see above)--its just but a tease for all the other cool things to buy, sell and haggle over.

                        GCAS SWAP 2019 is headed your way.
