David video recording all the winners at the NEGS 2012 OS
At the NGPS 2012 OS Bill received a special plaque from Sherridan with a message from members for his past services- it said:
‘Presented in 2012 to our President Bill Ramsden to mark his exceptional contribution to the World of Goldfish. With respect and affection from the members of the Northern Goldfish & Pondkeepers Society ‘
Sharon wins First, Second and Third in the Fancy Goldfish Class at the Bradford OS in November 2012
…and her daughter Chelsea won a First too, with Tom the Goldfish…
All this was at the 65th anniversary Open Show of the Bradford & District Aquarist Society on November 11th 2012
Member Sharon Hall is in Japan with her family for Christmas 2012 - she has posted lots of fascinating photos on Facebook, but here is one copy for the NGPS site - a Japanese ‘Goldfish’ bowl!
This is the Veiltail Sharon rescued as a poor, thin, fading pet that careful
feeding and good water quality has turned into a potential Show fish - or at least breeding stock.
This is the (potential)
Ming vase discovered
by David Roberts in a Yorkshire China shop - the décor is breeding Orandas….
David also brought this prewar goldfish bowl to our monthly meeting. It is made from moulded glass, and is still shiny and clear despite being at least 75 years old.
Sherridan’s ‘Black Goldfish’
shown at the July 2013
meeting…it is resting here,
but when active, the fins
are long and well-shaped.
However, no-one thought
it was a Goldfish. But what is it?
Sherridan’s Goldfish Bowl bought in a closing-down Chinese Shop (UK, not China) for only £20.
Wonder how much it is really worth?
Sharon Hall attended the 2013 Bradford OS
November 10th (we did not attend because
it clashed with our Llandudno meeting).
She managed a 2nd with this Goldfish….
This magnificent carving (18” high) is held by Bill Ramsden who won it at BAF back in the 90s for his furnished Coldwater Aquarium….
