1st Meeting of 2017
This was the first meeting of 2017 and the first 2nd Tuesday of the month meeting for the BBS. It was a great turnout for the first meeting of 2017. For me it is a struggle to attend these evening meetings. Firstly the birds have to be checked fed and watered. Leaving little time for me to make the meeting but on this occassion it was well worth the effort.
Question & Answer session
Questions were submitted before the meeting began and thanks to the efforts of Bruce Greenway who acted as the question master. The questions were organised and presentented to the successful father and son partnership Alex and David Woan.The precise detailed answers only demonstrated the depth of knowledge these gentlemen process.
The Woans setups are not the largest in the hobby but it became clear they have a develop a routine that works and the success has come from there hard work and knowledge.
