The Greater Akron Aquarium Society (GAAS) is proud to present its 43rd annual all-species show, ULTRA-AQUA 2014 to be held at the Tallmadge Community Center. This year we will be offering 65 classes and awarding cash prizes for first, second and third place. Winners of the individual classes then compete for Best of Division and Best of Show awards which will consist of a plaque and a cash prize. We will also be awarding the Great Lakes Catfish and Loach Championship as well as the North American Goldfish Championship (The Kobayashi Award). Both of these are high-point trophies awarded to the exhibitor who accumulates the most points in the respective categories.
We will again be offering a Saturday swap meet from noon until 5 pm during show set-up. Please contact our show committee or our website for table availability.
To provide plenty of time to swap “fish tales,” we will be having a Saturday night party with a program presented by well known cichlid hobbyist Rusty Wessel. There will also be plenty of time to talk fish. The party will be free of charge for show entrants or $5.00 for those who just want to join us for the party.
We have made every effort to make this show as easy as possible for the entrant. No pre-registration is required; just come and bring in your entries. The set-up and registration hours are as lenient as possible for a weekend show
