How the Group Meets

“It’s all about being a part of something in the community, socializing with people who share interests and coming together to help improve the world we live in.” – Zach Braff

SAWGG‘s season runs from September through August and includes:

Monthly Group Meetings:

Held on Friday evenings or Sunday afternoons in central Morris County. Here is what to expect at a “SAWGGathering”:

Your first stop is our Welcome Table. Grab a name tag, BAP-GAP submission form, and perhaps a membership application. Grab some refreshments. An at-will donation jar is here to help fund our meetings. Make sure you fill out a door prize entry too.

Mingle with our Members, browse our tables with our door prizes, bowl show, and library. Partake or add to our F.R.E.E. table (Free-Reuse-Expunge-Enjoy. Aquatic or garden items only please). Our auction tables are the most popular destination. Here’s your chance to donate, sell, or buy fish, plants, inverts, equipment, food cultures, books – anything aquatic or garden hobby related. Click here for the SAWGG auction rules.

After about 30 minutes, have a seat while we do some brief club business, followed by group discussion and Q & A from the floor, and member show and tell (pics, videos, items). We’ll take a brief break, then announce our bowl show winners and end with our live auction. Meetings run about 2.5 hours, but Members and their guests are welcome to drop in or depart anytime.

Monthly Zoom Meetings:

Feature a brief catchup with everyone, follwed by a guest speaker with slide program, or member presentations. Group Q&A and discussion follow. Meetings last 1.0 – 1.5 hours.


Our Zoom meetings are recorded put on a Member-exclusive Google G:Drive for viewing or listening to like a podcast.
