Dear friends and fellow aquarists,                                          Duplicate Entry Forms should be collected on arrival at the Show.

On behalf of the 2009 Show Committee and the members of HDAS,
I would like to offer you a warm welcome to our 46th Open Show.
HDAS will have their fish/equipment shop and food bar open
 throughout the Show.

Our venue is the same as usual, Hounslow Youth Centre, Kingsley Road
with free parking adjacent. Make sure you park by the Youth Centre,
inside the double gates. The car park before the gates is Pay and
Display, so if you do park outside, you will need to buy a ticket.

Hounslow Bus Garage and Hounslow East station are within walking
distance, as is Hounslow shopping area. Weather permitting, benching
facilities will again be outside the Centre as well as in the main hall.

We are pleased to have been given Classes D (Cichlids),J (Rasboras)
and V (Twin-tailed Goldfish) as this year’s FBAS Championship Trophy
Classes. There are also Tetra’s Best Pair and Best Breeder awards to be
won, and NEW THIS YEAR, two Classes for Juniors and our two
Special SHANGHAI Classes.

We all look forward to seeing you at our Open Show either as an exhibitor   H.D.A.S.meets at St. Stephen’s Church Hall, Parkside Road, Hounslow,

arrangement would be:

18” x 6” x 6” divided into:

(5” x 6 “ 6”), (5” x 6” x 6”) and
(8” x 6” x 6”)

As in FBAS Breeders’ teams Classes, Judges are likely to give preference to
entries constituting a single male fish, a sexable pair, and youngsters comprising
two males and two females.

In the Livebearer Class, any cultivated Livebearers entered must be of the same
obvious strain.

We are delighted to announce that these Special Classes have
               been sponsored by Spa Glass

Brian Chittenden has generously donated two ‘Shanghai Tanks’ to be awarded –
one to the winner of each Class.
