To the London Aquaria Society.
This is a letter I hoped I would never have to write, but due to unforeseen health issues I am handing in my resignation as the London Aquaria Society President.
It has been a great honor to work with all of the executive, from the beginning to the present. I have been putting this off for a few months now, but it is taking its toll on me. I am having stress issues. This decision I have thought long and hard about.
I will be participating in the club as always, just not in the position of President.
I will stand as President until after the executive meeting in February.
I hope you’re enjoying the snow.
We had an interesting meeting last month with Stephen Cheng doing a presentation on the ups and downs of a planted aquarium. The talk was very interesting and informative. I am glad he continued on with his project and was successful. I trust we all had a chance to learn from this meeting.
The guest speaker for February will be Frank Aquirre. He has been in the hobby for many years. His presentation will be both educational and entertaining.
The Shows and Auctions are just around the corner, so now is a good time to get your fish room ready for the new arrivals and to set your mind who should be traded to make the room.
The fish show for February will be in Gouramis and Paradise Fish, Bettas, the Open Class and the Open Class for Plants. We have also added the bowl beautiful to our jar show. For the bowl beautiful the only rule is it has to be all natural and the fish have to match the size of the bowl. The bowl has to have two flat sides (like the regular goldfish bowl.) This will be the first try at this. A prize will be given out for the first place winner, that the members vote on at the meeting. The auction will be there as usual.
Happy Valentines Day.
Be nice to your Honey.
