Just a reminder that to get your entry in early.

NOTE: There are a number of 2ft, 3ft and 4ft, tanks available for competitors to use, these will be made available on a first come basis.

It makes it so much easier to enter a show when the tanks are provided.

There are approx 15 x 2ft, 6 x 3ft and 2 x 4ft tanks available, but if you don't get in quick you will miss out.
