KOI SHOW! – May 2013
By Jean Jahr
We got together at Pauline and Lillie’s home in Roseville for our April meeting in their beautiful cottage style garden. I had been there many years ago when she opened her garden to one of Camellia Koi Club’s Koi Pond & Garden Tours. It was a beautiful experience then and this time, years later, I was totally awed once again. A Master Gardener/Artist/Koi fish keeper, Pauline Sakai and her mother have created an amazing place. Thank you both for welcoming our group into your home.
This month instead of our regular meeting Camellia Koi Club, Pure Water, Koi Enterprise of West Sacramento, and Strictly Toy-ondas of Auburn are co-sponsoring a Young Koi Show. It will be held on Sunday, May 19, 2013 from 9am to 3pm at Whitey’s Jolly Cone, 1300 Jefferson Blvd, in West Sacramento. There will be free public admission.
Even for the viewer who currently does not have a pond it will be a fun day out for the family. Gather up some friends and come on over. Grab something cold to enjoy from Whitey’s Jolly Cone while strolling around the Koi Show and admiring some beautiful fish. Who knows, someone may be inspired to add a pond to their landscape and include some awesome pets with fins!
Join us for the Koi Show on Sunday, May 19. Read all about it and download the Flyer and Entrant's packet on the Koi Show Information Page.
MEETING LOCATIONS SOUGHT FOR 2013Ideas are being sought for meeting locations. A priority will be a pond never seen before or not visited for a number of years. Send me a note anytime. I am always interested in hearing from you.
There are several benefits available to our club members. For example, access to our Koi Health Advisors, pond rescue, monthly meetings where guest speakers discuss topics that will add to your knowledge on Koi husbandry, a wide knowledge bank on how to build a successful pond, opportunities to visit many ponds for ideas and advice, and of course the social aspect of meeting friendly folks with similar interests. Additionally, you will enjoy barbeques, Koi events, discounts from local vendors and much more. Our members' ponds vary in size from a few hundred gallons to over 20,000 gallons, to small lakes. We can help make your pond more enjoyable. Thank you for visiting us.
