Colin opened the meeting and thanked the members for attending. Brian handed in the open show schedules which due to running out of time were self assembly. As John Reid has returned to the Table Show manager role this means the Canteen Manager post is open and any eligible members are invited to put their names forward for the post. Jean kindly handed in a donation from Fair City club for the forthcoming KAS open show and auction as well as some pictures of former president Robert Paterson for members to have a look at which were then given to Brian so he could scan them and forward them on to Robert’s daughter who had recently been in touch.
As it was an off meeting this week Colin asked members of any issues they had been having and shared an unfortunate story of how he lost some of his newly acquired Ameca Splendens when his Corydoras Elegans released something into the water which killed the Ameca’s. Members discussed modifying tanks to be better suited for the spawning of Tetra’s. Laurie and Brian shared some stories of recent eyebrow raising things they have heard while working in the hobby. A lively discussion was then had on the number of fish or fish tank related programs currently on televison with James and some other members mentioning Robson Green’s extreme fishing was worth a look.
The meeting then broke for refreshments and the raffle with members taking the chance to catch up and have a blether. Next week is a quiz by our treasurer Jim with strong rumors of a large cash prize for the winner from club funds !
