Mark Davis from Cuttlebrook Koi Farm


Mark Davis from Cuttlebrook Koi Farm
Well, what a fantastic turn out last night for our monthly Kangei club meet, the biggest attendance so far for the club, with 25 members attending the talk given by Mark Davis from Cuttlebrook Koi Farm.

Mark had come with an open mind and a choice of topics, and we opted for the history of the farm, and the breeding done there. It was quite amazing to see how Mark has progressed from nothing, to a successful koi farm, with the help of Lisa.  It's so easy to take for granted that we have such a place on our doorstep, without realising the time, effort and money that goes into the running of a 24/7 koi farm.

The night finished off with a questions and answers session, with Mark giving good, honest advise on all things Koi. This is the second visit to our club by Mark, and hopefully won't be the last. A big thank you from the Kangei crew :-)
Last night was also the closure of the garden show judge it for your self entries, Adam took the time to print off the koi pictures, and judging sheets for people who hadn't yet entered, it was nice to see all the koi in each variety/size laid out. The next meet will be another high attendance one I'm sure, when the results of this, and Gary's results are given out, along with the deserved awards to the winners, I can't wait!
Lastly, Adam mentioned that we are rapidly reaching our second AGM, in which the committee will be elected. The current committee are keen to help the club in the following year, but it would be great if anyone fancies having more of an input, and putting themselves forward for any roles. Or, if anyone has any suggestions on how we can improve the club in any way, that would be great also. Please get in touch with Adam. Remember, this is a club run by it's members, for it's members, so your opinions count.
