    2nd Ohana Koi and Goldfish Show

    It is our pleasure to announce the Hawaii Goldfish and Carp Association's second Ohana Koi and Goldfish Show. The show will be held Saturday, June 21st with the banquet on Sunday. The venue is Kalani High School, 4680 Kalanianaole Highway, Honolulu, Hawaii. The head koi judge is Kentaro Sakai of Sakai Fish Farm, Hiroshima, Japan. The goldfish judge is Dr. Carlson Wong of Honolulu. In addition to the koi and goldfish competition there will be vendors selling koi, goldfish, pond equipment and supplies, plants and more. For more information, contact Nelson Wong, Show Chairman, at ntkcwong@hotmail.com .

    It's a long drive, but this would be a great excuse to bring the family to Hawaii. There are several prominent koi dealers, public koi ponds and outstanding botanical gardens on the island plus all the beach and scenic beauty stuff. Join us if you can.

    Two years ago kentaro came and judged the seattle show, and surprised many by selecting a smaller ( higher quality) koi for GC. It was a bold move and I like his style of judging. Would love to be on hand to see the results of the goldfish judging....hope you and maybe a few others will post pictures for us unfortunates that can't make it

    WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT HIROJI SAKAI THE MASTER HIMSELF HAVE
    DECIDED TO ATTEND OUR SHOW INSTEAD OF HIS SON KENTARO. We are sorry that Kentaro could not make it also.

    With deepest appreciation to Joel Burkard of Pan Intercorp (friend and club member) who have made this all possible for us. We feel so honored to have both the breeder and the dealer of the All Japan Show winner here in Hawaii. Joel have also generously agreed to once again be one of our judges.

    I met Kentaro's father while wearing a hiroshima carps baseball cap. I think it made a favorable impression. the following year when he judged our seattle show he made me a gift of a two step kohaku that 2 years later took the prestegous tategoi award. If you have to replace kentaro, I couldn't think of a better replacement. I just wish I knew what this man has learned and forgotten!
