    ZNA Wester Cape Show - South Africa

    We had our big show this weekend. I walked away with Supreme Grand Champ A & B with a 77cm kohaku and a 74cm Soragoi. My good friend and show chairman (koibooi) walked away with Reserve Grand champ and Jumbo champ with a 84cm Sanke and a 83cm Showa. We had 285 koi entred with 18 competitors and 24 show vats. Was a lot of hard work to set up but all went smooth and everybody was happy. The quality was very high as you can see by the pics.

    We are just comming out of winter so the ponds were at 13 degrees celsuis. We were fortunate with 3 nice days and no rain!

    Beautiful fish. Congrats! ... That is the blue-gray all Soragoi should have. (It's not sora if it's just gray. ) Very nice and clean.
