Congrats to Menagerie!

By placing second in the overall standings of the Calgary Aquarium Society's 2005 jar show competition, she has won one of these (which she will get just as soon as I have her new address):

It was actually many fishes....each month at our meetings (except December) we have a jar show with 2-4 categories in which members can enter fish...points are awarded on placing in each category, year-end prizes are based on cumulative points....so Menagerie's placing is based on about 10-15 fish shown throughout the season. We award prizes for overall placings 1st through 5th.

We just had very few competitors that entered more than 4-5 entries each, all year long....so plenty of people in the 3rd through 15th placings.
