PAKA picnic, 2011
The Annual PAKA "BYOS" (Bring Your Own Steak) Picnic will be held at Shene's place on Sunday, August 26th. If you need directions, contact Shene. As usual I will make some potato salad and all are welcome to bring a dish of their choice to add to the feast. The pool is open so hopefully it will be as nice a day for uor picnic as it was last year.
At our meeting this July, Roberto brought fish he got in from an order with Gary Greenwood. We decided to order bags but not BS eggs at this time. Scott and Tom are to contact some "local" new AKA members and Tom will check with NOKA members to see if there is any interest in PAKA since NOKA seems inactive since Jim and Liz dropped killies. Food was great as usual. Joe Doyle even brought me a birthday cake as it was my birthday. Even Guman showed up!

As a reminder, Scott is the current librarian and has some killi literature that belongs to the club and is available for loan to PAKA members between meetings. Members "sign out" these volumes and are responsible for their safe keeping until return at the next meeting.

I have scanned a listing that Jim Robinson gave me of annual killifish incubation times. It is primarily of SAS killies but does have a few Nothos. See: Jim Robinsons Incubation times
This site is intended to provide our members with information on meetings, and club news including club member fish and egg listings. we need to do a major update on species within the club Lets Discuss at the Picnic.
April 2005 PAKA fishlist This is a very old list and is much smaller currently. At least it will give some idea as to the experience within PAKA
