President Colin opened the meeting and welcomed everyone to the meeting as we had 2 new prospective members along this week a conversation started as to what they kept fish wise or what they were planning to keep.
Colin mentioned the meal night at the Wok’n’Spice in Glenrothes was now up and members could add their names if they wished to attend. As this week was an off meeting there was no formal topic and members could talk about anything they wanted. Eddie mentioned the hidden dangers of white spot in a surprising amount of foods and Joe mentioned how impressed he was with the self drain facility on his FX5.
Members also discussed what they had purchased the previous day at the Glenrothes auction with most people thinking it was a buyers auction in many respects with some fish reaching decent prices, Brian added to his Swordtail collection with 2 pairs of Milleri swords one of which dropped fry in the bag on the way home and the other pair have since also had fry as well as scooping a pair of Montezumae and 2 pairs of Guntheri Swords.
James Muir has had unfortunately had to stand down from assistant open show manager due to a change in his shift pattern the role is currently vacant and a sheet will go up next week to fill the position. Next week is a talk by Gordon McLeod on how to show your fish at shows.
