President Colin welcomed members to this wees meeting which was table show no 7. Once judges Mike & Jill were ready Colin began recapping current club business again reminding members that the sheets for both the bus trip and the meal at the Jasmine Indian Restaurant in Glenrothes are up and filling up fast
A discussion was had about the closing down this weekend of A2B Aquatics and it was noted how sad it was that yet another fish shop had found it necessary to close, best wishes to Paul and Mick in their future endeavors
Ken mentioned that there is a F.S.A.S auction on the 8th September which more than a few members had forgotten about so this timely reminder was most welcome.
A in depth discussion was then had about Colin’s suggestion of trying to get Heiko Bleher to do a series of talks over a weekend along side other guest speakers and the feasibility and costs of doing so it was agreed to do further research into costings and discuss this again.
The meeting then broke for refreshments and the raffle and the handing out of the awards.There were 28 Entries in this table show from 4 exhibitors which while certainly better than in the previous table show is still some way down from previous shows – members are encouraged to enter fish into shows even if it is only a few fish and are reminded that any questions about the rules of showing , fish sizes etc will be answered only to happily by any of the judges (as long as they are not judging on the evening asked)
Best fish was an slightly over sized and extremely well presented cracker of a Botia Sidimunki entered by Gordon McLeod ad the Judges were Mike and Jill Dewar. The table show was handled by table show manager John Reid and his ever glamorous assistant Jean.
