    Koi shack closing shop

    Just an FYI. Dale posted an announcement on the site.

    Dale & Patti have done so much for koi and the koi hobby. Dale and Patti travel and support many koi shows and events. There is only so much time and money that anyone can spend on a hobby. It is sad to see the koishack close down but I completely understand Dale's rationale. Thank you Dale and Patti for everything you do to grow our hobby.

    Thought Ray's comments did a pretty good job of defining what the event meant to the hobby.

    Things change and people move on. The rise and fall of koi websites is one of those things that just happens.

    RAY: Before Koishack closes, it would be great if your thread on the all-japan GCs was saved. I'd love to see it re-posted on K-B in its entirety. I can't tell you how many times I've referred to it when some question came up. I wonder if Dale has a way to do that?

    Yes, Rob, JR's old 'unique koi' thread was a fun one.

    Hi Mike,
    Glad you enjoyed the All Japan Show Grand Champion Thread. I would love to see it copied and pasted here but do not want to ask Dale to do it. Things are pretty hectic for me right now so maybe one day we will start a new AJSGC thread here?

    only too glad to oblige.....when i can...

    http://thegingerichs.net/unique_koi.zip

    hope this works, its rather large, may take some time, but is the whole thread in a PDF and also then exported each page to a JPG to then post a picture....if this does not work let me know and I will use and FTP....

    You don't have to acknowledge Koishack, but please acknowledge those who started the threads, etc....

    More later, thanks again for all the support over the years,

    Dale
