President Colin welcomed the members to this weeks meeting which was also table show No 6. While the judges were getting setup Colin recapped the minutes of the recent committee meeting It was mentioned that there is a vacancy for an on meeting talk later in the year with members suggesting topics and speakers they would like to hear. The fish farms of South East Asia being a popular choice.
Sadly due to perhaps the recent heatwave and the starting of the fair fortnight Mondays table show had a fairly poor level of entries with all 8 entries coming from the same exhibitor this meant the judging portion of the evening was far quicker than usual. As judges give up their night to do the judging it would be nice if members could make that extra effort to bring entries in on a table show night.
While the judges were deliberating a lively conversation was had about a new method Mike had been using in spawning some species of Apistogramma which he seems to be having some success with. Discussion then moved to a variety of subjects such as the club’s Facebook page as well as the different fish people were attempting to breed currently.
With judging complete the awards were handed out with Colin scooping all of them unopposed the best fish on the night was a cracking Neolamprologus multifasciatus. The meeting then broke for refreshments and the raffle. Next weeks meeting will be an off meeting.
