          Hi Duc, I will not be able to attend this great event but would like to become a ZNA member. I don't have any club I can join and attend meetings, but would like to join the fellowship and have access to materials. Can you point me in the right direction please? Thank you.

            Tim,

            Join the ZNA via ZNASKA. They have members from all over the southeast...including Atlanta area. Who knows, you might be able to attend a few meetings and their special events.

            Koi keeping is not a belief system; it is applied science with a touch of artistry.
