Even though I live in Florida now, I’ll always be a Minnesotan at heart! This will be my first fan meet-up that I’m hosting in my home state of MN and I’m so excited to meet a lot of you. I’ll be doing a short talk starting at 11am about how I got started in the goldfish hobby, then we’ll open it up to your questions with a Q&A, and after that we’ll have plenty of free time so I can chat and take pictures with all of you. The meet-up is taking place at Aqualand Aquarium Center in Minneapolis, a shop you’re probably already very familiar with if you live in the Twin Cities area. It’s one of the main aquarium stores I frequented back when I was first starting out with goldfish keeping and I’m excited to go back for my meet-up!
A FREE First Edition Solid Gold Logo Pin will be given to every attendee who has purchased a ticket to the event.
p.s. I wanted to make this a free event, but as it turns out I’m spending a lot out of pocket just to make this happen, so hopefully $5 admission seems reasonable. I’ll still be spending more than I’m making to do this event, but I’d like the chance to meet you guys so it’s well worth it. There is no charge for children 5 or younger.
DATE & TIME: Sunday, August 12th from 11am to 2pm
LOCATION: AquaLand Aquarium Center 5355 Chigaco Ave, Minneapolis MN 55417
We only have room for 100 people, so please purchase your ticket ahead of time to make sure you’ll be able to get in. As long as we don’t sell out before the event, tickets will still be available at the door, but buying your ticket in advance is the only way to guarantee you’ll be able to get in. You do not need to bring a physical ticket to the event. Once you purchase your ticket online, your name will be put on the attendee list; so just bring your ID to the event so we can verify that it’s you. 🙂
Goldfish Essentials Gift Baskets: Three winners will each receive one Goldfish Essentials gift basket! I’ve put together three gift baskets which include a few of my favorite goldfish products to give away at the event. Each one has a $83 value and includes a 25′ Python Water Changer, a 250ml bottle of Seachem Prime, and a 1lb. bag of Repashy Super Gold goldfish gel food. Everyone who purchases a ticket will automatically be entered into the giveaway and the three winners will be announced halfway through the event and must be present to win.
East Coast Ranchu Gift Certificate: One lucky winner will receive a $100 gift certificate towards the purchase of adorable ranchus courtesy of Cynthia from ECR! The winner will be announced halfway through the event and must be present to win.
I hope to see you there!
