    PNKCA Convention

    Great weather, great organization for the event, beautiful part of the country....all combined to make the 24th annual event something special.
    Photos include Toshio sakai's daughter Miwa working with her father to net koi at the Olson's to do some minor repair and see thier progress and to comment on the future. On the pond tour Sunday, Toshio would give pond side lessons to comment on some of his koi in the different ponds.The last photos shows jasper who spent 24 hrs on a plane to get to our event making his presentation on food and feeding. Unfortunately Mat Mc cann was under the weather and we were not able to hear his comments.
    Nick and Brandy from Kloubeck's in Iowa were the featured domestic breeder and Russ and kari from Peters and Sons brought Matsunosuke
    fish from Toshio sakai.
    Probably the highlight for all was the dinner cruise saturday Night.
    Sunday was mostly taken up with a Pond tour and social time. (while some were oggling one host's pond, I was busy checking out two of his 5 delourian (spelling?) automobiles. Like most folks, I suppose....I was ignorant so I asked what year and was told all were made the same year, the big deal was which one of the 5 months they were produced your model was built in. neat gullwing doors (sorry no photos)

    PNKCA and Host NIKK club can't get enough Kudos for the excellent event
    they organized and pulled off.

    This particular Koi had a spot that needed touch-up with a disinfectant, so he was applying it while evealuating the koi's potential. The olson's have an incredible collection of koi. If they formed an A,B,C team to take to shows annually they'd have potential GC's for the next 20 years! (yes, they're off again to japan for the harvest)
