President Colin welcomed members and as it was an on meeting gave a quick run through of club business reminding members about the bus trip as well as the next KAS meal out which will be held at the Jasmine Indian Restaurant in Glenrothes a sheet for names has been put up and all members are welcome to come and take a break from promoting the hobby of fish keeping and enjoy themselves
This week’s talk was on The British Killifish Association and more specifically how it runs its auctions. Laurie began by talking a little about how auctions tend to be run in Scotland before moving on to briefly describe Killifish and why he chooses to keep them. He then gave an in depth look at 2 recent BKA auctions he had travelled to and showed from the initial setting up of the hall all the way through to the fish being sold and prized awarded.
It was interesting to see the many differences in the way the BKA auctions are run compared to the auctions many members are used to and regardless of how they felt about the different methods they could all agree it was interesting to see a side of the hobby many members had not seen before.
The meeting then broke for the raffle and refreshments, next week is an off meeting
