Hello All,

     Our meetings seem to be getting better and better. I have never experienced a meeting with a dais of expert members on a particular fish. I thought angelfish would be a good subject because of all the steps it takes to raise them. It went quite well and it could have gone on longer, but we had move on to the other parts of the meeting. I truly thank the two Jeffs and Gene for being put on the spot up front and center. There are other subjects I would like to set up the same way and I would like your input on them at the next meeting.

     The fish show was another great success with a bunch of entries. Ray took third with one of his amazing guppies. Bob took second with a nice large black angelfish and Buzz took first with a killifish. As you all know the judging is done by you, a jury of peers. Bring in a fish and you never know.

     We had quite a large fish auction for a regular meeting with some show-class angelfish from the breeders on our dais. I thank all who bring fish into the auction to help the club. I also thank the people who buy them, knowing it not only helps the club but also helps our breeders sell fish. It would not be an auction without Ed. He makes the action fun, with lots of laughs the way it should be. Thank you, Ed.

     I will send out a mail next week about our next meeting. I have a presentation in the works from one of our newer members who has risen in the ranks very fast. It will be interesting and about one of the newest popular animals in our hobby.

Tom Keegan, President
