Betta auctions and shows?

School's almost over (just ten more school days) and I've decided that I really, really want to go see if there are any betta shows and auctions around Atlanta Georgia during the summer. Do any of you just so happen to know if or when there will be any in Georgia?

King betta: I love the fish in your avatar. Where'd you get him?

betta novice: Yes, there are, just like there are dog shows, cat shows, horse shows, etc. But, betta shows aren't that well known of.

JKfish.. Unfortunately you missed the show in GA. It was put on by Georgia Betta Breeders Association (GBBA) on May 1 in Perry, GA (a bit of a drive from Atlanta but worth it). It was the first betta show in GA ever!

I'm not sure if we'll be doing another show yet or not. If your at all interested I encourage you to join GBBA. We have meetings every other month at various member's homes around Atlanta. Our next meeting will be in July. To join go here: http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/GeorgiaBettaholics/ Click join and fill out the form. Our President Dick Houston will contact you to get your info . If you join you can be a part in deciding if we hold a show again next year :)

Just in case you were interested here are some pictures I took at the show.

D: Oh, that's too bad :P

I'm not sure I'd be able to join and do, expecially considering the fact my mom doesn't exactly support the hobby I'm getting into, and driving me to random places >.> But, it sounds really cool, and I think there should definately be another show next year.

And your pictures and bettas are awesome ^_^ . The betta your mom got is beautiful!

Haha.. I'm spawning him this June to the female I bought. If you want I can let you know when the fry are going to be available. My prices will be really low

Its too bad you can't join. But at the meeting I'll be sure to let everyone know that there are people who are interested in us having a show again next season!

That'd be awesome. The only problem is I still have to convince my mom to let me get my/my little brother's current betta fish out of the tiny 1/2 gallon tank he's in, and into a 20 gallon I plan on buying :P But, my goal is to get him a 20 gallon tank by the end of the summer, so if I succeed, I'll be really interested. :D

Sounds good. If everything goes according to plan the babies should be ready to go to new homes around mid-August.
