As it was an off meeting this week a more general discussion was had following on from last week regarding judging and the procedures as well as some questions about how the judges go about judging the fish and what to do in the event of a query regarding judging, members were advised that in the event of a query it is always best to speak to the judge privately on the night as it’s difficult to remember details the following weeks.
