This week was the KAS presentation night and after President Colin had welcomed everyone John Reid presented the laminated certificates to the winners and runners up from each of the classes the Jimmy Gilbert quaich was then presented to Gordon McLeod for his winning Ambastaia sidimunki.
This week saw the first table show of the year and President gave an update on the club meeting rooms with it being confirmed the club will not be able to return to our former premises at Junction Road. As yet the council aside from allowing the club to rent a room at Templehall Community Center have offered little in the way of a more secure long term meeting room. Brian suggested Colin speak to the local councilor in an attempt to get the council to actually do something with regards to a new club room, Colin has now done this and will keep members updated with any progress. Colin also mentioned the club shop and reminded people that asking club members to buy items from outside the club and bring them in really doesn’t benefit the club in anyway.
Once all the entries had been booked in the judges were given the nod to commence judging and members had the chance to have a chat on a number of subjects including Ernie’s fish shed and Brian’s new behemoth of a marine tank. Members also discussed the recent KAS meal night and the enjoyable food and high brow conversation had by all.
Best fish on the night was a Ambastaia sidthimunki bought in by Gordon McLeod and the judges were Ken Young and John Reid and our thanks go to them for judging and to those who showed. It was pleasing to again see entries in the junior category and it is hoped this continues.
The meeting then broke for refreshments and the drawing of the raffle.
