Chairman Colin opened the meeting and welcomed members to the meeting before running through the current club business. Open show and auction preparations are going well with one of the better groups of donations received join recent years. Colin urged members to try where possible and arrive early on Sunday to assist with the setup of the hall for the open show and auction. Brian and Laurie got started on bagging up the first of the fish food being given out as open show prizes
The bus trip stops will be finalised this week and the list passed on to the bus companies for quotes.
As Monday was table show number 4 the judges were given the nod to commence the judging. It was something of a disappointment entries wise with only 20 entries from 2 entrants meaning Colin and Gordon effectively split the prizes between them. Best fish overall was a cracking Botia Sidthimunki owned by Gordon McLeod. Members are encouraged to enter fish in the next show even if they have never done so the judges are always happy to advise on sizes etc if asked.
Colin reminded members that the next meal out for KAS members will be held shortly and that the list of names is still up. Rumours of treasurer Jim footing the bar bill if more than 20 names go up are as yet unconfirmed. Joe reminded members that he is getting ready to order club polo shirts and that members who do not have their names down are running out of time.
The meeting broke for tea and the lottery and raffle to be drawn and the prizes were handed out.
