    Dear Friends

    On Sunday 13th May the Ryedale Aquarist Society will be hosting a special ‘Fun Day’ to be held at the Pickering Memorial Hall, Potter Hill, Pickering, North Yorkshire. YO18 8AA.

    We have hired the main Ground Hall from 10.00a.m. to 4.00p.m. The idea for ‘FD’ is that we relax and have an enjoyable ‘day of fun’. Events for the day will run as follows:

    1. 10.00a.m. Welcoming tea and coffee. Benching of mini-show exhibits. Placement of sales table items.

    Rather than hold an auction we have decided to put on a sales table instead. Please bring along your spare fish and aquatic items to sell. Please name all fish and place a contact phone number onto any electrical items. 10% commission will be taken on all sales. Items on the table will go on sale from 10.40a.m.

    2 11.00a.m Talk on ‘A fishkeepers visit to Singapore Part 1’ by our special guests Mr. Kevin and Mrs. Christine Webb.

    3. 12.15p.m. approx. Shared ‘pot luck lunch’. Ryedale A.S. will provide the tea and coffee and we ask that you, please, bring along a savoury and/or sweet item to add to the lunch pot.

    4. 1.30p.m. approx. Talk on ‘A fishkeepers visit to Singapore Part 2’ by our special guests Mr. Kevin and Mrs. Christine Webb.

    5. Prize awards for both Sue Marshall’s ‘fun quiz’ and the mini-show. Drawing of raffle Early tea.
