President Colin welcomed members to the meeting which despite being table show no 6 was a bit lower attendance wise than usual so a big thank you to the members who made the effort and are supporting the club at this time. Unfortunately table show regular Gordon was unable to make it due to vandalism of his car but there was still 25 entries from 5 exhibitors.
Colin mentioned the bus trip and that more confirmed names were needed another few seats were paid for on the night so there is still time to book your place. Joe said depending on numbers future years trips may need to be discussed.
While the judges carried out their work a enjoyable and light hearted chat was had covering everything from how Ken and Brian try not to let on about the cost of fish they have bought as well as Fish sheds in progress or planned and how members had decided to build theirs. The meeting then broke for the raffle.
Once the judges had completed their work the awards were handed out with best fish going to Brian and Mel for a well oversized Coletti Tetra (Moenkhausia Colletti) The judges were John Reid and Eric Jones and our thanks go to them for their efforts. And thanks also go to Jean Symington who helped me get my entries in on time despite my late arrival and lack of preparedness.
