    Central Florida Koi Show 2014

    Save the date: March 7-9, 2014 at the International Palms Resort in Orlando.

    The 2014 show has added special treat for all. The AJKA judges will be holding their annual judging seminar at CFKS. So, there is discussion about how we can use the AKJA judging seminar and the presence of so many judges to create a really great show experience for everyone.

    On the show planning front, we have taken a big step. To help control our costs and keep charges to vendors low, we have entered into a multi-year deal with the hotel. So, you can also mark your calendars now for the and 2016 shows:

    March 13-15,
    March 11-13. 2016

    As part of the deal, the hotel has agreed to upgrade rooms reserved using our group code (CKK). Reservations made under our group code are immediately upgraded to the tower building where the show is held. Tower rooms are normally about $20 more, and they are bigger rooms. Group code reservations automatically have the resort fee waived. So the $94 show rate is equivalent to booking the cheapest room available from a third party site at $66. (When you use one of the third-party sites, you do not know about the resort fee and such getting added, but you'll find it on the bill [and in the paperwork you did not read when you registered... all the hotels in the area are adding such charges, as if they were airlines]. We are hoping that with these arrangements more people will reserve under our room block. That saves the show on its expenses, and lets us keep costs down.

    To make it easier, reservations can be made on-line. A reservation link and the group code are:

    https://bookings.ihotelier.com/Inter...roupID=1025071
    Group Code: CKK


    If you are internet-adverse, you can still telephone either: 1-800-354-8332 or 407-351-3500. Be sure to mention Group Code: CKK. If the link does not work for you, go to: internationalpalms.com .

    It's going to be another great show!

    Calendar marked!

    Always a great show with great folks and wonderful koi. Central Florida Koi Show 2013 saw some monster sized koi and had folks coming in from far, far away. The vendors, both wet and dry, are numerous- fulfilling the needs of the hobbyist from beginner to advanced. (Also a great place to buy that nice Matsuda net you've always wanted, but don't want to pay shipping.)

    I'm sure Mike will post the vendors as they trickle in!

    Maybe they'll even refurbish the scary elevators? Either way, I'll be there.

    Don't know if I have adequate competitors currently, but I'd love to see your fish firsthand, Bill.
