    NorCal ZNA Chapter ?

    Seems like there are many koi kichi in Northern California -
    is/was there any discussion/threat about NorCal ZNA chapter?

    How difficult to form one like SoCal ZNA? What are the requirements?

    Smile zna nor cal chapter

    There was a zna nor cal chapter formed in 1978 in Hayward, CA, in the late 1980s the president passed and no one took over.
    Probably can be activated as a friendship chapter but will require 25 members all subscribing to the Nichrin magazine.
    Hope that answers your question.

    Angry zna nor cal chapter

    Yes, that sounds real easy but do not forget first in order the to have a friendship chapter you will need members along with officers that is president, tres, etc. Who will be willing to step up to the plate and do the work?

    Dan, I think subscribe to Nichrin is just one of the requirements.
    If that is the only requirement - we can form the NorCal ZNA
    chapter in days ;-)) I plan to subscribe to Nichrin soon regardless.

    zna nor cal chapter

    Dinh

    It easy to get buddies to sign up, but who will be willing to work, no use in forming a chapter and not holding a koi show every year.
    Koi shows are for education and friendship. There is no use having a club that have 100 members and two workers. What you need is 25 members and 25 workers ......all willing to step up to the plate....walk that walk and not talk the talk.
    Hope you understand.
    There are many clubs that have a large number of members but only few workers consequently the number of koi shows are diminishing each year due to lack of help.

    Agreed, members make it look good...

    Working members make the club better....
