Re: [Killietalk] Box sales
First of all, nothing will chase away potential newbies that a caste
bidding system. And I can only imagine the politics behind designating
someone a master breeder. Then consider the logistics: all master RIV
breeders will get a brown paddle, all master notho breeders a red
paddle, etc. Egads!
Second, adopt the Jim Gaiser approach and watch for new faces. Befriend
and educate them, and steer them toward decent beginners fish rather
than let them bid on looks alone. The folks I've known in the AKA are
more than willing and generous with their time and knowledge. This
approach creates successful, long-term hobbyists.
Finally, the breeders of rare or difficult fish have most likely
distributed them to other breeders they know so there's little threat of
losing them from the hobby. If they are that rare and hard to breed he
or she is not likely to be bringing box loads of them to a show. If he
or she is that successful that there's excess inventory, then the fish
needs to be widely distributed along with his or her technique.
Eliminating box sales would force the breeder to sell out of their room
or car trunk. They would still likely enter the same number of show
fish. You wouldn't want then to enter 20 pairs of each species they
breed. The box sales provides an organized way to distribute excess
fish, add a few dollars to the club's bank account, and put a few
dollars in the breeder's pocket, until they start bidding on the fish
and spend it on show fish that is...
