    NEWS ALERT

    I am told that, assuming the vagaries of travel do not disrupt plans, the Saturday seminar series will have a presenter all kichi will want to hear. Mark Gardner will be speaking on a topic of his preference.

    With Mark's tremendous insight into the world of Nishikigoi globally, any topic is sure to draw a full house. (I hope the show survives a lot of the volunteers disappearing at the same time. )

    Congrats to your show for having Mark coming over ...

    BTW, who are judging your show?

    For the koi show, the head judge will be Bryan Bateman. Also judging: Troy Head, Mike Frady, Robert Wicker and Michelle Gravenish. I am uncertain if the goldfish show judges are confirmed, so I'll not post what might not be correct.

    I think the Goldfish Show will reach new heights this year, topping last year's 100+ entries. We have two goldfish importers as vendors and some of our koi dealers will bring a few goldfish along. I expect a number of goldfish sold on Friday will get entered in the show, pushing up the numbers. The goldfish fanciers tell me that the latest imports are very high quality. I couldn't say. They are all deformed to my eyes.
    MCA and bobbysuzanna like this.

    The schedule for the Saturday seminar series is still being finalized, but the line-up is looking great:

    Central Florida Koi Show
    Seminar Schedule
    Saturday, March 12, 2016

    9:00am Robert Wicker, speaking on Kin Gin Rin
    10:00am Mark Gardner (Niigata-Nishikigoi.com), on a topic he is selecting
    11:00am Dale Gingerich – Is it a Showa or a Sanke?

    1:00pm Mat McCann (Nisei Koi Farm/Quality Koi/Beni Hanna Aquaponics), topic to be announced
    2:00pm Mark Gardner (Niigata-Nishikigoi.com), on another topic of his choosing
    3:00pm Gunn Chusakul (Fish Corner), on Thailand Bred Goldfish

    The presentations will be 45 minutes or so, followed by Q&A. There is a charge of $10 for the day, whether attending just one or all of the talks.

    I find myself hoping my show responsibilities are light and I can take in 3 or 4 of the speakers.
