    Dinh,

    Please don't thank me. All thanks go to our friend Lee, who saw an opportunity to help with your fund raising for the new ZNA club by donating the Cayman Islands pins for this auction.

    I thought it would be nice to pass on to the bidders and Koi Bito Forum readers an explanation of the design of the pin. Lee and a graphic designer worked together to come up with a meaningful design for the Cayman Islands Koi Club Pin back in 2007. Looking at the photo of the pin you posted there is an image of the shape of Grand Cayman, the largest of the Cayman Islands and where Lee has lived since moving there from the US. Above and below the island are the image of a kohaku and a shiro utsuri. Star fish are on three of the four corners of the pin. The 3 star fish represent the 3 islands that make up the Cayman Islands, Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac. On the 4th corner of the pin is the image of waves, representing the ocean surrounding the islands.

    Good luck with the bidding!

    Dale
