There is no show, and hasn't been for a few years now. It was cancelled due to declining interest. There used to be several hundred show entries at one time. If the numbers from the hamilton show are correct, where there were only fourteen people showing, this supports the general lack of interest to show fish. kudos to those who are still willing to go through all the work required to show fish. The Vendors were Expo has worked out for the club, in it's place. It has allowed the club to make a few dollars, as has the entry fee. The various vendors, have added things that weren't in the auction as well as items that were (sometimes) cheaper than the auction, as well as allowing the vendors to showcase themselves.
While not everyone agrees with the format, it has helped the club financially while still allowing the buck a bag auction. DRAS has, and continues to donate to worthwhile conservation efforts, such as Madagascar endangered fishes. Making money on the annual event allows this to happen. Regardless, the buck a bag is good for sellers, although it usually makes for a large, and sometimes long auction. The entry fee, means the sellers no longer pay the auction entry fees, which basically subsidized the buyers. For those who can't stay for the duration, there is a bump option.

I am having trouble finding the rules etc. Of the auction on the dras website. The link above is not working for me either.
Hoping to bring some fish but would like to go over the regs. First.

Hey dude i'll try to get you the info for sure but it's 1 dollar per bag for sellers, the rest is profit. No minimum bids, and no reserve. I think that is pretty much all that you need to know. Also have them bagged well.
