Dear fellow Goldfish Enthusiasts,
#NOTICE OF CANCELLATION OF 7TH ANNUAL NATIONWIDE: FANCY GOLDFISH OPEN SHOW UK – SATURDAY 3RD OCTOBER 2020
This letter is to confirm that the above National Nationwide: Fancy Goldfish Open Show, originally scheduled for 3rd October 2020 in Coventry, England, has been cancelled due to the current Covid-19 Pandemic.
It is with much regret that we have had to announce this unfortunate decision after the difficult last 4 months of lockdown for so many of us. However, as there has been no effective universal treatment, vaccine or cure forthcoming, the risks and logistics of staging such a show has proved impracticable at this time.
Aware that all contributing Goldfish Societies within the UK have cancelled all society meetings for this year, 2020 has proved to be a disappointing year so far for all of us breeders and keepers alike. The monthly ‘Zoom’ meetings staged by BAS of late, have proved to be a welcome break from our enforced isolation and with the upcoming ‘virtual shows’ organised by BAS and NGPS (please check the internet or contact Bob Jones (BAS) on firstname.lastname@example.org or Sherridan Moores (NGPS) on email@example.com) there can be some limited social contact for those of us with the internet!
It is known that many breeders have spawned their fish this year and may well have surplus stock for sale in the next couple of months or so. Please check the various society websites or contact the society secretaries direct to find out what might be made available in your area.
Good fish keeping and stay safe,
Pat Davies, Chairman, Nationwide: Goldfish Societies UK
