CAFÉ Meetings

CAFE typically has five bi-monthly meetings each year plus the Christmas/Holiday dinner. Each meeting will feature a guest speaker pertaining to a particular aspect of the aquatic hobby. There will also be a raffle, BAP/HAP submissions, and a mini auction at each meeting. Fellowship with other hobbyists is the norm as we maintain a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where novices and experts alike may exchange ideas and experiences.

You need not be a member to attend meetings and everyone is welcome to join CAFE.


When…

Meetings begin at 7:00 PM on the fourth Friday of even-numbered months (February, April, June, etc…) December is an exception. The club has a Christmas banquet which is generally announced sometime in November. (please note the banquet is limited to club members only). A club event or activity will be held on non-meeting months.

We encourage folks to arrive early as registration for the meeting auction will take place prior to the start of the meeting.

REMEMBER: The 4th Friday of the month is not always the last Friday of the month.
