President's Message for June 2015
Happy Father's Day
First of all I would like to say that Annette and I had a great time at the CAOAC convention put on by CAOAC Executive on the May 24th weekend, they had a great line up of guest speakers and lots of info was gathered by all those in attendance. It was nice meeting the Betta People who put on a great show for the first time in Canada. We spent some time with a lot of the people in the hobby who made this hobby of ours so interesting. A big round of applause, to Ken Boorman and Catherine Salmon and their gang for a job well done. We had a great time and the Holiday Inn staff was most helpful. Thanks to all the Presidents and their clubs who donated to the Presidents Draw at the dinner. Thanks to all who made this convention a success. I know when we got home a well deserved rest was due and we took full advantage of the extra day off.
We have a full slate of executives for the upcoming year. If anybody has an interest in any of the committees please let it be known. Whatever help can be offered will be a benefit to all.
The presidents BBQ will be held in Waterdown on the 28th of June after the Executive meeting with the general meeting also we are going to cover the results from the survey and see what steps can be used to make the association work better with communication and making our great country a little smaller to all the clubs. With the use of Skype and other resources I trust we can fulfill that problem. It would be a lot nicer if we had more seats filled around the table with whatever means that are available to us. After that we all have a chance to enjoy the pleasures of a pot luck dinner. There will be lots of food for all who attend. We will be having our 50/50 Draw and the ever popular draw table so we can all either donate or buy some tickets for a chance to win what is on the tables. So come and join us for a great day.
