    Third and final ZNA NorCal Koi Handling Seminar - 9/19/

    The third and final event in the ZNA NorCal Koi Handling series is scheduled for Saturday, Sept 19. You really don't want to miss this event. It will be held at Genki Nishikigoi, 1850 S 10th St, San Jose starting at 10:00.

    Members from any of the area koi clubs that arrive between 10 and 11 AM will be given a free raffle ticket for this very fine 12-13" aka-tosai Showa.

    Non koi club members and anyone arriving after 11 will not be able to enter the raffle. Sorry!

    Training will start at 11:00. Rick Blazo will review his discussion on catching and handling koi properly. Then Tom Lai of Champkoi will review his demonstration of key benching techniques. These include proper use of the sock net, bowling technique and bagging.

    Then Kevin Pham will demonstrate additional benching skills, specifically moving a koi from the tank to a measuring tub and back. He will also discuss classification of the koi for the show using the classifications for the 2016 ZNA NorCal Koi Show.

    Finally, well known koi hobbyist, Duke Nguyen will discuss koi handling from the hobbyist perspective. All in all this should be a great opportunity to increase your knowledge and skills as well as a chance to come away with a bonus of a very nice addition to your collection.

    The drawing for the darling Showa will be held as soon as the presentations are concluded. At that point anyone wanting to practice the benching exercise presented by Kevin may do so.

    The first two events in this series were a big success and much appreciated by those that attended. This final event should be even better as it brings together everything already presented plus new information. It's also a great opportunity just to get together with your koi loving friends and spend a few hours away from the pressures of your hectic everyday life.

    Another bonus, Kevin is holding his 3rd Annual Customer Appreciation Sale during the entire month of September. If you purchase a koi for over a $100, you can get another one of the same or lesser value for half off.

    A great opportunity to purchase that tategoi in time to get it in shape for next year's show. You can take advantage of this opportunity anytime this month.

    This email is going out to a pretty good list of folks in Northern California and beyond, but I don't have every club member yet and the vagaries of email means the message doesn't always get through, so please share this with your friends and fellow club members. Hope to see you there.

    Many thanks to Kevin and Genki Koi Inc for donation a beautiful showa for raffle.... !!!

    he third and final ZNA NorCal Koi handling seminar went very well. There were many members in attendance. May thanks to the club president, Dr. David T. for organizing the Koi Handling Seminar. There will be more educational events in the future. Stay tuned. May thanks to Kevin Pham and Genki Koi Inc. for hosting the final seminar. Specially thanks for the beautiful showa that donated by Kevin for raffle at the end of the seminar session.
    Many thanks again to Rick Blazo, Kevin Pham, Tom Lai, and Duke Nguyen for leading the seminar in helping the club members, especially the new members to earn more koi handling knowledge. So from now on, most of the members know how to handle koi for the show. You guys can volunteer to help the show as well as using it as your practice for what you have learned. Keep up the good work.
