    A REPORT ON THE RYEDALE AQUARIST SOCIETY 25th ANNIVERSARY DAY

    Report by Dr. David Ford

    Held at the Old Malton Memorial Hall in Malton, North Yorkshire, on Sunday 11th July, the Ryedale Aquarist Society put on a special 25th Anniversary Day.

    This was more than an Open Show because the philosophy of Ryedale AS is ‘The little club with a big heart’. There were ‘Mini-Open Shows’ for special entries, such as Ladies Day (AV fish owned by a lady) and Dastardly & Mutley (unusual fishes, not normally seen on the show bench). There was also a craft competition with photographs and miniature models.

    The BCA (British Cichlid Association) had a Mini-Open Show with 4 classes. They also had an information stand at the Show. David Armitage of AAGB (Anabantoid Association of Great Britain) had a stand with aquarium fish on display and Fishphilosophy had a retail stand. David Marshall displayed the covers of, and posters about, Aquarium Gazette CD magazine but was too busy rushing around to have a proper stand on the day.

    Dr David Ford of Aquatic Services gave a talk on ‘How a Goldfish changed my Life’. He also helped judge the Open Show events, along with an FNAS ‘A’ Class Judge (John Cowan) and a YAAS ‘A’ Class Judge (Steven Grant) who pointed the 71 entries. Ian and Mary Fairweather judged the popular craft class. Steve Jones of the European Anabantoid Club then auctioned many items to an appreciative audience.

    The main fish competition was a special ‘Ryedale 25th Anniversary Championship’ which was won by an unusual fish: Electris vittatus which is actually a family pet called George, by the owner, Phil Blackburn of Sheaf Valley AS.

    In the BCA Mini-OS the highest pointed fish was a magnificent Neolamprologus daffodil, an African Cichlid owned by John Douthwaite of STAMPS (South Tyneside Aquatic Marine & Pondkeeper Society).

    Seriously Fish forums member, and Ryedale Events Secretary, David Marshall is to be congratulated on organizing a successful 25th Anniversary Day as are all of his fellow Ryedale members and their helpers on the day.
