    Can an Independent person throw a koi show....

    Can an Independent person throw a koi show without the AKCA?

    Sure you can. The AKCA really has no input in your show anyway except for supplying judges, but you could bring in whoever you wanted to be a judge. If you have the resources to do one independantly, then go for it. Any show, is better than no show, for education.

    I don't know your circumstances but you can get around lots of things with good organization.

    find a nearby club that will rent you their tanks for your friendship experience.
    talk to a public place that will allow you to put water on display in their facility.
    communicate with a current judge that might come use your "show" as an educational unoffical tool.
    get a top bench team from a long time organized club that knows how not to cross contaminate and get them to volunteer their help.
    get a sponsor who you will give their name to your effort to underwrite the basic cost of putting it on.

    our mike can help you out here, but get a good release from harm consent form for participants to sign!

    Cool, thanks on the input guys...I was thinking on the lines of an ALL-California Show.

    Tanks I would have to rent from the clubs. There would be no problem getting help from the dealers here and out of state. But, I was looking more next year around Feb. Need to push this hobby forward, alot forward....

    We're working towards it. But I think best we can hope for is treating Gardena as the 'All California" show -- it IS the defacto All California. And All Northern California is certainly possible and the SFBAKC show is a good place for it OR the CKC show in fall.

    If we include a dealer class as well as a hobbyist class then maybe next year's CKC. Please forgive my ignorance here but maybe that would be closer to a 'All Japan' type of show?

    More like an "All-Japan Show", would love to see it happen. 30-40 or maybe 50 tanks. Hobbyist from all over would come out. We will see thou, still gathering opinions on this....

    What would you guys think of a money prize for top awards? If not money but prizes like a trip to Japan or something like that....

    My opinion

    My opinion.

    1. Participate in the organisation of an existing show, you will learn lots.

    2. Find an established show that might be interested in being moved forward to what your goals are. Work with them.

    Aquitori: Not sure what you have in mind, but it takes a lot of volunteers to put on a show of any size. The All-Florida show ran for several years as a joint project of about 10 clubs. It took everyone to pull it off, but it came to an end. The Central Florida Koi Show held in March grew out of that experience as a project of 5 clubs. Bringing the clubs together and getting them to work together can be a challenge. Everyone has different ideas and goals. Once on the same page, koikeepers can do great things.
