President's Corner - September

September 04, 2017 11:01 PM | Gerald Ellison (Administrator)

I hope you had a good time at our August meeting. Dr. Bob Adler was a great host. If you don't know Dr. Bob will be our Show Chairman for our 2018 Koi Show in March. This will be Dr. Bob's 3rd year as the Show Chair. We can't thank him enough for all he has done since he has joined the club. If you didn't make the meeting his home is located in Beautiful Bonita. He has a very nice Koi pond as well as a few horses and a "Fleet" of Hummingbirds. I have never seen so many in my life. We held our Koi Show Pin contest, the members in attendance voted on the winning design. The winner of the 2018 Pin contest was Dr. Bob, Congrats. His design will also be considered for the Design that will potentially grace the front of our Koi Show T-shirt. 

Talking about the 2018 Koi Show, it’s right around the corner, hopefully you are going to enter a few koi in the show or help volunteer. As for Volunteering or participating in our Club events we have a few coming up if you haven't heard. 

  1. We have our Japanese Friendship Garden Filter cleaning September 16th. If you would like to help out please contact Linda Pluth (619-200-4146, lpluth@cox.net). FYI, this is a great way to see the Garden before it opens and your help is your admission into the Garden. (Please enter by the back gate).
  2. Our annual Koi auction is September 30th. If you have some koi that need re-homing or you need a Koi at a Great price, this event is for you. Please contact Tamsie Pierce for more details. (619-427- 9008, tamsie@cox.net). 
We have a full slate of meetings and events coming up. Linda Pluth, Jack Chapman, Susie Woods and Gerald Ellison have worked hard to get us great venues and speakers so I hope to see you soon. To find out about more events and more koi info please visit our website koiclubofsandiego.org. Gerald Ellison has done a good job with our new website. There is a member area that requires you to sign up. There is some good stuff and I hope you do so. We also have a very active Facebook page Koi Club of San Diego, thanks to Phyllis Spoor for some great pictures.
