    20th Annual San Diego Koi Show

    Tom Graham, show chair for this event wanted me to share this information:

    Our Head Judge with be Senichi Mano of Izumiya fame who is not only

    one of the most respected koi breeders in the Niigata region, but is

    also Chairman of the Shinkokai.


    Shunichi Yoshida is Vice Chairman and Director in Charge of Fish

    Disease for the Shinkokai as well a being the third generation of

    Yoshidas who have dedicated their lives to Nishikigoi. Shunichi's

    father Hiroshi was one of the founders of the Shinkokai, and

    Shunichi's position as Director in Charge of Fish Disease for the

    Shinkokai makes him an invaluable resource for questions regarding

    the state of the industry in Japan.


    Masaaki Matsumura is also a Vice Chairman of the Shinkokai and is the

    owner of Matsumura Fish Farms, a Koi and dry goods distributor in

    Nagano prefecture.


    In addition to our esteemed panel of Shinkokai Judges from Japan, we

    will also feature judges from AKCA, ZNA and Shinkokai of U.S. The

    AKCA judge will be Pam Spindola, an experienced judge and a long time

    Koi hobbyist. The judge from ZNA is Ron Goforth, a certified ZNA

    Judge and long time ZNA leader. The Shinkokai U.S. judge will be Ray

    Abell from Nishikigoi of Niigata, well known for his keen eye, and

    high quality koi. There will also be three AKCA candidate judges, and

    professional fish handlers from the Shinkokai of U.S.


    Our benchers and fish wranglers will be Shinkokai member dealers,

    so your koi will receive the best possible TLC.


    The dates are February 17th and 18th, President's Day Weekend.


    We have special lighting for every tank this year, so the brilliant

    reds and whites will be able to compete as they should.


    And if that is not enough we also will feature Cash Prizes, sponsored

    by AQUA ULTRAVIOLET. Grand Champion will receive $1,000 cash.


    Here is the breakdown


    Grand Champion -$1,000

    Reserve Grand Champion - $350

    Best Non-Gosanke Champion -$350

    Best Mature -$100

    Best Young - $100

    Best Baby - $100


    That's $2,000 in Cash Prizes up for grabs!


    Please spread the word about our upcoming show, and reserve a tank

    early. We expect a super turn out this year.

    Thank you for posting this again, Steve! Last time I posted, the thread got over-run with politics.

    Not to mention the beaches, the mild weather, etc. - when compared to this Colorado snow right now. I cannot wait.
    All in all, a good show to attend.

    It's goin to be hard to get people to go down with there fish for this show. Considering alot of hobbyist from NorCal want to show, but not alot of them can be there to see the fish through all the way through registration...Too bad they planned this show on "Chinese New Year"...

    I will be there to checkout the show...
