  • Orlando In March: Save The Date

    The Central Florida Koi Show will be March 7-9, 2008. We return to the Holiday Inn Resort on International Drive... one last time? The construction project on the site has been delayed a year, so we get to return to a great venue. Details on the vendor fair will be going out to our regulars in the next couple of weeks. Work is in progress setting up the seminars, inventorying equipment needs, etc. Gonna be another fine show.

    More info as things are finalized.

      Tonio: I'm slow to answer! But, yes, we are honored to again host the annual ZNA presidents' meeting. We get really excited about it. Florida was such a backwater in the hobby for so long. People get energized to have leaders in the hobby among us. Getting to meet folks you've only read about is a real pleasure. So much koi knowledge.

      Lots of work has been put into planning the show. But, things really go into high gear in the weeks ahead. ZNA Southern Koi Association has its show in Naples this weekend, with some great fish expected. Then the energy gets poured into the Central Florida Koi Show. Half of the 50 vendor booths are already reserved 4 months ahead of the show. Seminar presentations are largely lined up. Banquet menu determined, etc., etc. But there is still a lot to do to make it the best CFKS yet.

      AuntieSue: Got a little surprise for you. But I can't tell. (It's a secret. )

          Well, you can tell me, I promise I won't say a word to anyone.....LOL!!!

          As always, we are looking foward to this show. It's our first pilgrimage
          of the season. This year we will be bringing fish down ourselves I think instead of Kevin doing it for us. At least I hope it works out that way. This year we hope to get there early Friday so I can help some with the show. Would love to help bench if I can get there early enough or perhaps learn a bit more about scribing.

            JR is our head judge at the Naples show. I need to make sure I stop by the bakery on the way to the show. I remember reading recently that JR likes pie with his Koi JR will be assisted by Bob Brudd and Dick Thomas.

            Steve Childers is the head judge for CFKS in 2008. Steve will be assisted by Larry Gill, Garry Chin and Jan Thompson. We may have 2 judges coming over from Holland as well.

                  I think there might be something here. I skimmed through alot of the shows posted and I have to say Dan did a very good job doing coverage of the NorCal Show. Maybe Dan can be hired to do coverage for one of those shows Henry. Just a thought.

                            Russ,
                            Ya know them really big tall rocks east of ya? Pass them up and a bunch more until you get to the flatlands....then keep going east across this really big muddy river....then, keep going east until you get to some other big tall rocks....turn south until you find Mickey Mouse and then you are there.

                            Steve
