President Colin opened the meeting and welcomed a packed room to the nights meeting. Colin quickly ran through the current business mentioning that next week was an off meeting where we would discuss the recent USA open show and auction. The bus trip list is up and is filling fast don’t forget to put your name up and pay for your seat to avoid disappointment. Colin mentioned that this was the last week for nominations to the role of canteen manager and with no further names added Melanie Stewart was elected on to the committee to return to the role. A thankyou card has been received from Melanie and Brian thanking all at KAS for their wedding gift which was gratefully received.
As the club was lucky enough to have the well regarded Rainbowfish enthusiast Alex Carslaw giving a talk this week Colin handed the meeting over to Alex.
Alex gave a well received talk beginning with a look at the Rainbowfish family and where they came from as well as the different types showing members some cracking pictures as well as some background information on each one. Alex then moved on to covering subject such as feeding, breeding and the issues caused by hybridisation. Alex’s passion was evident and members greatly enjoyed listening to Alex who had time to answer members questions at the end.
KAS would like to thank Alex for taking the time to come to the club and give an insight into a family of fish much larger and varied than many of us previously thought.
Sunday is the WLAS auction at Livingston Rugby Club open from 10am to 5pm with the auction starting at 12 sharp till 5pm.
