President Colin welcomed members to the meeting and gave a quick update on the previous weeks club business. Colin reminded members that the list for the bus trip is up and that places are not guaranteed until paid. A minutes silence was then held for a former club member who had recently passed.
As this week was an off meeting a discussion was had on the 2 recent auctions firstly the USA open show and auction at the AK Bell library in Perth and more recently the West Lothian Aquarist Society auction at Livingston Rugby Club. Members enjoyed both shows and bought a variety of fish and got some good prices for the fish they had brought to the auctions. Members were asked about and then discussed the fish they had bought and their plans for trying to breed them. Jill gave the members an outline of the financial side of the USA Open Show and Auction.
Colin mentioned Brian was in the process of planning a new fish shed and a lively discussion was had with many members taking the time to share their experiences of building their own sheds and problems to watch out for.
The meeting then took a break for some refreshments and the drawing of the raffle. Next week is Table Show no 6 and members are encouraged to come along and bring some entries.
