    2010 San Diego Show Pictures . . .

    First of all, Brenda and I would like to thank the San Diego Koi Club, it's President (Shirley Elswick), Show Chair Kristine Peterson, Co-Chair John Svelan, and all the show staff for putting on an outstanding show again this year.

    We'd also like to thank the Judges (who came from all over the US at their own expense) for a Job Well Done.

    We couldn't have had a nicer time or been made to feel more welcome!

    There were 203 fish in 33 tanks from 22 entrants. Breakdown: 64 fish in sizes 1 & 2, 68 fish in sizes 3 & 4, 51 fish in sizes 5 & 6, and 20 fish in sizes 7 & 8.

    Additionally, there were 31 vendors (wet and dry).

    We took 10 fish (pics taken prior to bagging and boxing):


    . Doitsu showa; Hiroi


    . Gin rin goshiki; Hiroi


    . Doitsu hi showa; Hiroi


    . Gin rin goshiki; Hiroi


    . Yamabuki; Jirosuki


    . Flame point Himalayan; breeder unk. (forgot about this one being in the batch)


    . Budo goromo; Takano


    . Gin rin goshiki; Hiroi


    . Kohaku; Sakuma


    . Goshiki; Tanaka

    (to be continued) . . .
