Tonight was table show No 3 and after Brian and Jean had got all the entries booked in and the judges had began the judging chairman Colin opened the meeting by welcoming the members. The quotes for the bus trip have been received and there will be a committee meeting shortly to discuss these as it gets more expensive each year Gordon mentioned worth considering possibilities such as mini buses or car sharing. Tonight was the last week for names for table show manager and John Reid was elected unopposed. Members then discussed shops they had recently visited and the fish they had purchased. Colin spoke about his Festivums that he received from Brian again eating their fry and ways this could be prevented next time he also mentioned Brian’s latest flooding of the house in his RO making adventures and told a humorous story of crossed wires where they both ended up in their cars outside the others houses along with their partners after a mix up over who was visiting who.
The meeting then broke for refreshments and members had a chat amongst themselves while the judging completed there were a total of 31 entries from 6 exhibitors including an entry from a new member showing for the first time. After much deliberation the judges made their decisions and the awards were handed out. Best fish on the night was a cracking Barbus Anchoporus by Gordon McLeod with best junior going to Stuart Christie with a Phallocerus Cuadimaculatus the judges were Senior judge Ken Young assisted by Jill Dewar, Eric Young and Ernie Walters.
