    this weekend's UK nationals

    This weekend will feature the national koi show in the United Kingdom. Some of the best koi in the world are displayed there. I do hope we have one of our board members going there and will post here!

    Bill Oakley will have one of Toshio's top goromo's on display for the first time, and Mike Snaden's customer, Cliff Neale who many have read about in KB will have some surprises to unwrap.

    weather there is just getting over a heat wave, which in the UK is always followed by horiffic thundershowers.

    My Buddy From the UK who I gifted last Christmas with A Spokane, Washington
    Club koi shirt said he will be wearing it at the nationals. So in a way us landlocked Koi folks from the states will be there in spirit!

    Hi
    Well, it's rather sad for me because finally I won't be able to attend the BKKS National Show this year , as planned.
    Last year I had a wonderful time in the show, and took many pictures that are available on the AEK web page (http://www.elkoi.com) as you might already know.
    I was planning to attend the show and produce a report with even better pictures (better camera this time) to be uploaded in the AEK web page.
    Saddly, it won't be possible.

    If anyone goes to the National Show and takes nice pictures and info and is willing to share it, the AEK (Spanish Koi Keepers Society) will be more than happy to publish that material in his web page giving of course full credit to the author. Just let me know.
    All the best,
    Diego Jordano
    Chairman AEK
