    I'll try to get some pics tomorrow of the black carp for you.

    congrats to Ryan Vo on the GC with this awesome Kohaku. Pictures don't do her justice.

    Congratulations to Ryan Vo for his second Grand Champion award this year with his beautiful 4 year old Dianinchi bred Kohaku. I saw this kohaku win GC at the ZNA SoCal show in March after just arriving from Japan. Six months later it has grown and improved even more. I see little evidence that it can not continue to complete in future shows. A true testament to Ryan's koi keeping skills. This kohaku is a complete lesson in conformation and quality as perfect examples of both.

    Many thanks to all our wonderful members, volunteers, judges, entrants, and vendors for making our 20th annual show a big success. We were very fortunate to have a highly regarded judge team which included Dick Thomas - local certified ZNA judge as head judge, Pam Spindola - certified AKJA judge, and Duc Nguyen as our ZNA candidate judge. The group photo was taken next to the Bob Spindola Memorial at our show site.
