President Colin welcomed members to the meeting and gave an update on the prizes so far received for the forthcoming open show and auction with new Open Show Manager doing a great job in drumming up donations. In the next few weeks the board will be going up so that roles can be worked out and everyone going knows what they are doing on the day.
With no other business to take care of the meeting was handed over to Gordon McLeod who gave a very interesting talk on how to properly show fish at both table and open shows. Gordon covered a range of topics beginning with show jar selection and avoiding air bubbles as well as the best ways to tape a jar and the use of natural substrates. Gordon also had a number of handy tips on getting the best out of your fish in a show by considering some of the factors judges would be looking at.
The meeting then took a break for refreshments and raffle next week is an off meeting
