    2007 Matsunosuke Event - Toshio Sakai In Seminar

    Dear all,

    I am very pleased to announce the 2007 USA Matsunosuke Event - Toshio Sakai in Seminar here in Northern California. Here is the 2007 Matsunosuke event's general information. The schedule of event and registration package will be posted here soon.

    Thank you and hope to see you all at the 2007 ZNA NorCal - Matsunosuke Event.

    Best regards,
    --Dinh Nguyen

    ================================================== =====================


    Zen Nippon Airinkai NorCal

    Presents


    Toshio Sakai

    In Seminar

    February 24th & 25th, 2007


    General Information



    Mr. Toshio Sakai of the Isawa Nishikigoi Center, one of the most notable and highly regarded Nishikigoi breeders in Japan, is coming to the San Francisco Bay Area in February 2007 to present a 2 day seminar on learning how to judge Koi, understand how to select Finished Koi and Future Koi, and Matsunosuke Blood Line. The first day of the seminar will feature a set of 4 separate lectures by Mr. Sakai followed by a banquet, and the second day of the seminar will feature a judging competition for the participants. The Grand Prize for the winner of the competition is a trip to Ojiya Japan in the fall of 2007 to participate in the Matsunosuke Ikeage (mud pond pull) and auction.

    The Zen Nippon Airinkai NorCal club will hold this educational event at the Sheraton Hotel in Pleasanton, California. They are able to present the event through the generosity of Peters & Sons Koi & Pond Supply, the event Sponsor and Grand Prize provider. All proceeds from this event benefit the ZNA NorCal, a non-profit organization.

    In 1974 Toshio Sakai and his brother, Toshiyuki Sakai of the Yamamatsu Koi Farm, bred the first Matsunosuke Sanke. From that point, the history of the Matsunosuke Blood Line began. After many years of development, Matsunosuke Koi became the All Japan Show Grand Champions in 1994, 1995, 1997, and 2002. Toshio Sakai went on to develop a Matsunosuke blood line for Showa that has become highly respected and shows great quality because of the stability of the Sumi (black color). His knowledge and expertise in the selection of Nishikigoi will be shared with the participants of the ZNA NorCal event.

    It's part of Nishikigoi education purpose along with fund raising for ZNA NorCal, a newest ZNA chapter. Yes, it is an open seminar to all indeed.

    We didn't know both Marudo and Ogata will be there for the same time.
    Otherwise, we can schedule for a different weekend indeed.

    Marudo was here in NorCal few years back. He is one of my favorite breeder to learn and to chat with....

    That's all right Dinh , after you've had a lesson from Toshio, you may have a new favorite breeder/teacher.
    Thanks Russ and kari at PS KOI for your assistance. When Toshio put on his first seminar in Philly, when Joe Z opened up quality koi, I flew all the way back there to see Him from Seattle. It was well worth the trip! Since then he has added so much more to his matsunosuke bloodline, like new improved
    beni and sumi....if anyone wanted to treat them selves to a new educational level you need to seriously plan on making this trip.

    hats off to ZNA Norcal for making it possible for all to take advantage of this opportunity.
