    Andrews Koi 10th Annual Grow Out Contest

    Frank, Johnathon and I had the best day, we seen old freinds and meet lots of new ones. The turn out was spectacular, the fish were great, I enjoyed helping a few select koi as did Frank.

    Johnathon picked out 2 fish, and I thought we were done, then along comes another one and a couple hours later one more... LOL he has the bug badly, just like his Papa annd mammy...

    The food was excellent as always, and Andy and LuLu are always the perfect host for the event. as our all of Andy's workers.

    Mike Hernandez was the judge again this year and did a fantastic job.

    Here are a few pics in no special order, many people shots, and fish shots.

    Oh and our very own Aussie5 Barbara Brooks won "Andy's choice award" with a very nice Kujaku...

    I have always enjoyed Andy's grow out contest, it is what the hobby is all about, learning and sharing, teaching... Andy came up with this idea and many have tried to imitate it, but Andy's is the real deal....

    Hi,

    I was there today for the first time, and I have to say it is a great event to be at. The koi are extremely fairly priced and it is exciting to look at the nissai that were brought and see how they have changed.

    The food is great, too! I came a little later at 10:00, and bought a Sakuma Kohaku that's pretty nice. All the nice Hoshikins were gone by the time I arrived, though I had a feeling they would be. I'm extremely satisfied with what I got, and am anticipating raising my first growout fish (hopefully a she).
