August 2016 BAP Report

The July monthly meeting showed continued participation in the Breeder Award Program as two members donated three entries to the monthly auction.  Auction chairman Rich Poole entered two livebearers to move up in the standings and Dan Koenig entered a new world cichlid to move closer to the Advanced Breeder Award (300 points). Rich’s entries were red wag platies (Xiphophorus maculatus) and Endler’s livebearers (Poecilia wingei). Dan chipped in black convicts (Amatitlania nigrofasciata).  

In other BAP action, the officers of the club voted to name the “Breeder of the Year” award after our late president, Frank Montillo. Frank was an enthusiastic participant in the program and was the winner of the first BOY award in 2011. The award will be henceforth known as the “Frank Montillo Breeder of the Year” award.
