President's Corner - August

August 09, 2017 7:33 AM | Gerald Ellison (Administrator)

Summer is in Full Swing and I hope all of your Koi are enjoying the Warm weather. If you missed last month’s meeting, it was another terrific meeting high atop Point Loma... Thank you Carl and Shirley Elswick for hosting. If you don’t know, Shirley has been involved with our Club for many years and is a very dedicated member. She has served as our President and is very active with the Japanese Friendship Garden as a Docent. 

Our July meeting had our very own Galen Hansen as our guest speaker. It is always a treat to listen to Galen speak and gain valuable knowledge from him. I encourage all of our members to attend our monthly meetings. Some of the benefits of attending the meeting are:

  1. Get to interact with people of similar interests

  2. Share and Gain knowledge of Koi Keeping

  3. Great Food

  4. Great Venues

  5. Terrific raffle/drawing

Get to Relax and treat the meeting as a mini vacation ....maybe I’m exaggerating.......
There are some events coming up in the next few months that you might want to attend and or participate in.

We have our annual Koi Show Pin contest. Anyone that is an Active KCSD member can participate. The winning design must incorporate last year’s KCSD’s Grand Champion Koi. Entries will be accepted via E-mail and or hard copy. You can turn your entry to me at the August monthly meeting or e-mail me Entries must be submitted to me by the August meeting or simply bring it to the meeting. Just take a look at last year’s winning koi on our website and sketch your entry on a 8.5 x 11 piece of paper. The winning design will grace the front of our Koi Show 2018 T-Shirt.

On September 16th we will have our Japanese Friendship Garden Filter Cleaning Extravaganza.....It’s a great way to support the Club, the JFG and a great way to see the inner working of a Norm Meck gravity Koi Pond filter...Please contact Linda Pluth (619-200-4146) for more info, or go to our website

September 30th.....If you didn’t hear, our Annual Koi Auction is back on. Same location as last year in Escondido. If you have Koi you would like to have Auctioned, or if you’re interested in purchasing a koi at a huge discount, this is the event for you... We still need volunteers. Please contact Tamsie Pierce for more details on volunteering.

All these events don’t happen without your support, I hope that you sign up or attend one of our events. Remember our Club relies on Volunteers, and any help is much appreciated.

Hope to see you soon,

Scotty Yee
