    Non-Competitive: In what way?

    Size, Variety, Quality, Finish?


    I'd suggest more Trophies but I want to go to Florida next month. lol

    While this comment might be sent with a touch of jest, what do you do with the person in the hobby and the koi they enter, when clearly an entry deserves the right kind of encouragement? Hopefully, each show group knows how to avoid embarrassment, maintain participation and build the motivation to show.

    Very few people can afford a higher quality imported koi. I met some great people that just entered their home bred low quality koi and were trilled at winning a prize in a lessor category. In fact if I want someone to talk with it is at the far end of the tent.

    In lieu of non-competitive koi, maybe the appropriate word would be an appeciation of koi. I know its stretching for the folks who like to enter koi shows, but the range of appreciation is vast when it comes to ANY hobby. As much as I love Gosanke, I really appreciate those special off-the-wall specimens that make you go.....huh?..hmmm...coooool!

    I suppose it depends a lot on what we consider as taste and lacking in it. If koi us art, what kind of koi do we want to see? It's the ones our senses can appreciate without even koi judges coaching and conditioning us. It would be the same koi we would want to show. Unless we want to make a statement like "all koi are beautiful and equal." If a show starts allowing rightful culls to be displayed, I know I have one reason too many to spend my day elsewhere.

    If a non-competitive is from the ranks of unique, what makes it unique, rather than just rare?

    Never a problem. The Koi was entered as Kawarimono.
