Our club, GAIC, was formed in the 1960′s to promote the guppy by selective breeding, passing information amongst club members and exhibiting our fish at IFGA-sanctioned shows. We currently hold meetings quarterly or on an “as needed” basis at members homes (wives and significant others are always welcome at our events). This provides members with an opportunity to learn new techniques and to incorporate any new ideas into their individual breeding programs. We typically discuss club business and follow up with a lecture/program on our hobby at our meetings. Members will often bring breeding stock to meetings to pass along to others.
While the “club hub” is in the Chicago suburban area, we have members in Indiana, Iowa and Wisconsin.
GAIC holds the all-time record for entries at a show and is the only club to surpass 1000 entries (an entry consists of a single male, single female, 2 matched males, 3 matched females or 5 matched males) and we did it twice.
