President Colin welcomed members to the well attended meeting and reminded them that the bus trip seats needed to be paid this week for Sundays eagerly anticipated bus trip down the East Cost. Nomination sheets are now up for all the committee posts in advance of the AGM. The sheet for names for the KAS xmas meal is now up all members are welcome to get some Christmas spirit and come along and join in on what in past years has been a really good night.
With no further issues to be raised the meeting was handed over to our guest speaker the ever popular Mr Terry Scott to give a talk on reptiles. In a very interesting twist on previous talks Terry concentrated on the evolution of snakes and reptiles going back to pre-dinosaur times before later showing how many of them had adapted to mass extinction events to find new niche and survival methods and then over time evolved to become extremely effective within these niche.
It was a very engaging talk and it was clear Terry had the same enthusiasm and interest in snakes and reptiles as many of us do with our fish collections and it certainly gave members much to ponder especially Melanie who now really want’s Brian to get a bearded dragon ! Members then had the opportunity to handle some of the snakes Terry had with him and ask any questions they had.
KAS would like to pass it thanks on to Terry for a cracking talk once again and we look forward to having Terry back again in the future to share more of his knowledge. The meeting then took a break for refreshments before breaking up for the evening,
Next week is an off meeting where we will get a chance to discus the bus trip this Sunday coming and what people bought on it, as well as what people thought of the Glenrothes auction the previous Sunday
