What a great day. We've just had the visit by the delegation of people from the pacific nations at the shop here and it was a fantastic experience. Eleven people from a variety of countries and backgrounds, Samoa, Nauru, Tuvalu, Vanuatu, Solomon Island, Tonga, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, and a representative of the Australian trade commission.

They spent over 2 hours here looking over all the system, and judging from the comments they left behind in the visitors book they enjoyed themselves almost as much as we did.
Quote:
Am so excited about the opportunities that aquaponics could bring to my people.

Quote:
I'm sold, arrange the package cost.

Quote:
Have waited a long time to visit the facility, Exceeded all expectations, Absolutely blown away.

Quote:
I will own the first aquaponics operation in Samoa!! Thank you for sharing.

Quote:
Very impressive, and organic. Best wishes.

Quote:
An extremely interesting concept that will have excellent appeal in the Pacific.


Yes, there were some very excited people and they all left with a BYAP show bag pack which had all of the magazines, a DVD, and some other bits and pieces, one guy wanted to buy a BYAP shirt, so we handed a couple out. Then we decided as they were leaving that they should all have a BYAP cap, so as they were getting in the cars Faye raced out with the hats. Such a shame we didn't get a picture of the two vehicles driving off with them all beaming smiles, waving out the windows with BYAP caps on.

A very down to earth bunch of people that were genuinely interested in aquaponics and how it might transcribe to their circumstances in the own countries.

Oh and a special thanks to Faye and Laura (Fayes daughter), who made an assortment of sandwiches, jam and cream matchsticks in the shape of fish, and mini quiches. We weren't sure if they were going to want any food but figured we should be prepared just in case. Lucky thing because I think they didn't leave till after 1.30.. And they ate almost all the food that Faye made yet hardly touched the shop bought chocolate slice and biscuits we put out.. They weren't silly... :)

Apparently there was another official that was desperate to come today but he had to have lunch with the queen. He was very disappointed :dontknow:

Aaah all in a days work. But I didn't think to take photos as the early start had me on auto pilot getting ready first thing this morning. Might have to do it all again when we have the next get together! :lol:
