oh mate, please don't think that, we're just having a giggle.
there will be beer at the bar but its not a smash up, its not very "UKaps" to have us all smashing it on the stand LOL. I need keeping in check every so often, Graeme does a great job of keeping me on the straight and narrow LOL. Last year we only had one beer at lunch time. Plenty afterwards at the propper bar then we just strolled off and sat by our stand talking fish and plants. It was fantastic! One of the best weekends ive ever had and there were only four of us, it'd be even better with all you guys there!
I completly understand if you wanna stay away from situations like that though.

Hey Guys, the dates are 11-12 of October and it's held at Mill Rythe Holiday Village, Hayling Island.



The UK Discus Association won't be there this year so numbers will be down so we need as many members to try and pop in to make sure that this festival keeps going in all it's glory.

UK Discus Association will be there again this year, we are working on some major players from Malaysia and the world being there with us !!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy days mate!
You can stay on site, we are. It's £95 for 2 nights, i don't have a price for just the one night. If you wanna call them it's 020 8847 3586 - Grace. I think the details would be on the FBAS website.

Hey guys,

I've been a bit quiet as I've been really busy in the past few months. However, the light is at the end of the tunnel!!

I'm trying to persuade my father to come down to this party as well. He's into his fish ponds, and me into planted tanks and gouramis... I'm sure we'll both find something to occupy us!

Its a monster trip for both of us, as I live in the north west, and he's in Belfast! Planning has already begun - I hope to see an exciting UKAPS stand watch the jaws drop of the 'old school' when they see what you can really do with a fish tank!

Hopefully see you guys/gals there

Simon

Nice one Joe, it'd be nice to put a face to the name. There is a wicked koi show there with some of the UK's best fish so that should keep your dad happy?!
