Grow and Show Competition

Further to the discussion at the last meeting regarding a club grow and show competition, and the good response from the members that were there, Tim has contacted Pam at Avenue fisheries, asking if she would run it for us. She has very kindly agreed, and will hold the koi once purchased for the duration, so it will be a fair competition. The competition will include various varieties of koi, showa, kohaku, ochiba, kujaku, chag, doitsu etc to name a few, so something for everyone's taste. . 

The date set for choosing of the koi will be Sunday morning on the 7th October. 

 The process will be as follows:
* Members will meet at Avenue at 10am on Sunday 7th October, money paid
* You will be given time to look at the selected koi (there will be many on offer) 
* Everyones name will be put into a hat, first out, first choice etc
* Photos of each koi will be taken when chosen. Both you and Pam will have a copy via email
* The koi will be grown on heated at Avenue until Easter 2013
* Pam will decide the winners
* A day will be set closer to the time for the results and prize giving to suit members/Avenue
* Two prizes will be on offer, an Avenue koi voucher to the koi with the largest increase in length, and a club prize for the koi that has shown the greatest improvement in quality

Lastly, please feel free to bring your partners, who are more than welcome to buy koi also, time to see which of you has the best eye!. Just let me know if they will be entering. 

We will discuss this further at Adams BBQ on the 22nd, after the photo show day. I'll see you there.
