“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 Saturday afternoons in Morris County. Here is what to expect at a SAWGG gathering:
Welcome Table is in the hallway for checking in. Here we have name tags, BAP-GAP forms, free samples, and Membership applications with information about the club. Make sure you fill out a door prize entry!
Find a seat at one of the tables. Then mingle, or browse our door prizes, auction items, bowl show, or library. Partake or add to our F.R.E.E. nook (Free-Reuse-Expunge-Enjoy). One hobbyist’s junk is another hobbyist’s treasure! Aquatic items only please.
Refreshment Table is nearby. Bring something edible/drinkable to share – or just bring yourself! An at-will donation jar is here to support the meeting.
Our Auction Table is the most popular destination. Here’s your chance to unload or acquire fish, plants, inverts, equipment, food cultures, books – anything hobby related. Donated items to support the club are most welcomed! Click here for the SAWGG auction rules.
After about 30 minutes, we have a seat and do some brief club business, followed by a questions or member show and tell. We then present a 30 minute (approx.) speaker or DVD program or moderated group discussion. We end the meeting with the live auction. Meetings run about 2 hours, but Members and their guests are welcome to drop in or depart at their liking.
* LIVE MEETINGS ARE POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Members are meeting and holding auctions exclusively online during this pandemic. Stay safe and protect your fellow citizens: Wear a mask. Social distance. Avoid indoor gatherings.
Monthly Zoom Meetings
Held on a Friday evening later in the month to chat with fellow members and share pictures and ideas, live online. 30-60 minutes.
