    Saturday, March 12, 2016

    9:00am Robert Wicker, speaking on Kin Gin Rin
    10:00am Mark Gardner (Niigata-Nishikigoi.com), on a topic he is selecting
    11:00am Dale Gingerich – Is it a Showa or a Sanke?

    1:00pm Mat McCann (Nisei Koi Farm/Quality Koi/Beni Hanna Aquaponics), topic to be announced
    2:00pm Mark Gardner (Niigata-Nishikigoi.com), on another topic of his choosing
    3:00pm Gunn Chusakul (Fish Corner), on Thailand Bred Goldfish

    The presentations will be 45 minutes or so, followed by Q&A. There is a charge of $10 for the day, whether attending just one or all of the talks.

    I find myself hoping my show responsibilities are light and I can take in 3 or 4 of the speakers.
    Mike, Beni Hanna Aquaponics sounds interesting. That is something I could do with a crowded tank of tilapia, but I wonder how aquaponics will work hand in hand with developing our koi. If you get to hear the talk, could you please share? Have fun at the show.

    Looks like Henry and Gary making up more stories.
    Koi keeping is not a belief system; it is applied science with a touch of artistry.

    While getting real work done in order to work the show, I have not been posting. And, now that the show is over, there is a backlog of real work. But, I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to Danh Phan for coming from Texas and entering his gorgeous SFF Kohaku in the show. Early on I took a quick break from my show responsibilities to check out the entries that had arrived. I was disappointed. There were certainly some fine koi. However, I have become accustomed to there being a 'mega koi' or two... a koi that is truly awesome. The sort that a crowd gathers around. There was none .... not at that time. That changed with Danh's beautiful Kohaku, a GC winner in other shows. Having such a special koi made everything that much better. How special? Well, at the Saturday night awards banquet, the American Koi Judges Association took advantage of Danh's presence to present him with it's National Champion Award for , an award decided by all of the AKJA judges based on their collective evaluation of the GCs at shows held across the U.S. during the year. Having won multiple GC titles during , Danh's Kohaku was well-known and had proven herself. Now, with the win at CFKS, she will be eligible for the 2016 National Champion award.

    I do hope someone will post a good photo of her for all to see. I think Bob Wicker has a decent video of her.

    THANK YOU, DANH!

    I've collected these from FB,

    I'm sure some are from Mark Gardner, among others.

    Thanks, Troy. Kudos to the photographer of the last photo. It captures the beauty of this Kohaku better than others I have seen.

    It was quite a trip for that big gal. I hear the return trip was uneventful and she is happily swimming in her home pond.

    Here is the photo that Dale took for the photo award. After going through the long transport, she still looks perfect. Thanks again to Danh for bringing her to Orlando for us to see in person.
