    This is some good news!!! WOW, this is goin to be a very big show...I expect the level of competition to be very very good, (Rumorville: Duke Nguyen might be competing) so tank inquires should be done now!!!

    Also the 1st Annual Koi-Unit meeting will be held at the show, t-shits for the "Unit" will be passed out. So, all "Unit" members need to be there to show or just support the show.

    Mr. Aquitori, some of my koi will be ready at that time for the show;-))
    In additional to the one day off from work - if there is any thing we can do, plz post it -

    BTW, I was there when NorCal has All Northern California koi show 6 or 7 years ago. It was a wonderful event - not only the koi show, but other garden stuffs
    and koikichi folks. Seems like this will be much better.....

    Just wanted to let everyone know that this would be the best time for all Bito'ers to come out and support this show and meet the faces behind the "Handles"....Next month is the Camellia Show goin to use that as a warm up for the ZNA So-Cal and All-Bay Area Show...

    Note: Nancy didn't mean to forget your Koi-Kichi show in Nov...I will be there after I get back from Japan with Joe and Kevin. If I can't make it I will have the other guys certified by you to handle koi...Ruben is the only one not certified, Esan is ZNA certified, Joe is Joe of course, Brian is Champkoi certified, Jen and Mike are newbies but are raising up in the ranks of knowledge. Kenneth and Shirleen (Hawaii) they are the most experienced members as well as Jolene and John (Stockton)....
    The world sleeps as the chance to learn something new passes.
