    Hi Duc, I will not be able to attend this great event but would like to become a ZNA member. I don't have any club I can join and attend meetings, but would like to join the fellowship and have access to materials. Can you point me in the right direction please? Thank you.

    Tim,

    Join the ZNA via ZNASKA. They have members from all over the southeast...including Atlanta area. Who knows, you might be able to attend a few meetings and their special events.

Quality Koi Co. is giving this koi away as a door prize on the Saturday of the ZNA Koi Enlightenment Event, April 17-19th. All you need to do is register and attend Saturday's Seminar. The lucky winner of this koi, will also receive free mud pond keeping for this coming summer at Quality Koi Co.
