This week was time for the xmas decorations and tree to go up so after president Colin welcomed members and mentioned the KAS meal on Saturday the club took the opportunity to present Jean with a card and a cake to celebrate her birthday many happy returns from all at KAS.
It was then time to see the new tree treasurer Jim had bought to replace the old one which sadly had to be put out of its misery due to it resembling the tree equivalent of an abandoned horse. The new tree looks very smart and is capable of flashing at speeds not seen since a 90’s rave.
Members then manned the ladders and put up the rest of the decorations while tucking into slices of Jean’s cake and cups of tea and coffee.
Next week is the KAS xmas night to which only fully paid up members can attend as no money will be handled on the evening.
President Colin welcomed members and again mentioned the KAS xmas meal and the sheet is still up for names to be added, it’s always a great evening which helps promote the social side of the hobby of fishkeeping.
Colin mentioned he was having an issue with a 5 part split tank where any fish added to one section were dieing members suggested a number of things to try Gordon, Ken and Laurie having some good suggestions which Colin intends to try and let us know how he gets on.
There were a total of 25 entries from 6 exhibitors including 2 new entrants Robert Dickson and Brian and Mel Stewart.
Best fish was a Corydoras Sychri shownby Gordon McLeod and the Judges were Ken Young and Eric Jones. Next week we will be putting the christmas decorations up in the clubroom. and the following week is the christmas night which only paid members can attend.
