    UMKC Show Photos

    We moved the show date to avoid some of the horrible heat that often is present during the month of August....go figure, that we'd still get some pretty warm days in mid-September!!! At least it didn't rain all weekend!!!

    We benched just over 100 fish including our "grow outs" supplied by Koi Acres. Marudo was our head judge together with Art Lembke and Bob Winkler!! THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR DEDICATION TO THIS HOBBY and sharing your knowledge with our members!!!

    We also completed the final of 4 shows competing in our 2009 Koi Trek Champion Award. Those shows participating were Louisville, Indy, Chicago and now Minneapolis. Those GC and RGS winners have been video taped and will be forwarded to the Christensens for final judging where one Champion will be crowned. We hope to have that announcement within the next month.

    Many hands go into pulling off a successful show and our membership came through and offered time, resources and donations!! Some computer glitzes on Saturday in prep for the Banquet presentation, but with help from a member we were back online by that afternoon with an abreviated version for the Banquet.

    We will be setting the date for next year within the next month. We hope you will put our show and that of the other midwest shows on your calendar for 2010!!! Once again will be offering the 2010 Koi Trek Champion Award. Some excellant suggestions to make this an even better event have come forward. Watch for details to come in the future.

    Now for our major winners:

    GC - Bill and Jan Doyle - Sanke
    GC B - Paul Korf - Shiro
    RGC - Harvey Filister - Tancho
    Baby Champion - Ray and Renee Helms - Showa
    Young Champ - Harvey Filister - Kohaku
    Mature Champ - Ron Sterbenz - Kujaku (Hikari Moyo)

    Thanks to all that came to support our third year!!!

    Now for some well deserved rest!!!

    Sue

    Yep, he serves as our translator!! He's back in Japan now working the farm. Will stay through the harvest and likely through the winter.

    Just a quick trip back to help with Koi wrangling & translating for the judges, he did squeeze an extra day off to spend with his brothers.

    They were glad to have you and the other judges over to share their place, it is a very unique place to visit.
