Hello All, sorry for the delay as ive been away..

ok for any of you that were originaly here before Koikeepers forum sadly closed its doors, some of us had already organised a show and grow competetion. lucky for us the guys here at Extreme koi forum have welcomed us Ex koikeepers and enabled us to continue with the competiton in the way we would have run it. so at this point id just like to say Thankyou to everyone at Extreme and also thankyou to Lakeside Lad/Addict/Graham for what he did at koikeepers.
for those that arent aware 30 shiro utsuri koi were precured from imho the best shiro breeder in the world "Omosako" these were hand picked by Mike Snadden from YUME KOI when he went out earlier in the year.
these koi arrived in the uk on Tuesday 17th of may 2011.
currently these koi are situated in a members quarentine tank somewhere in Essex ;)
they are to be heat ramped and QT'd to the same high standard as the PKDA would suggest. and are currently in process of there first heat ramping.
The competition will be ran in the same way that we ran last years competiton where as all those involved will meet up and a predetermind time (at least four weeks after QT) and draw a number out of the hat. this number pre determines in which order you go to collect/choose a plain envelope. inside the envelope is the photo of the koi you have one.
in my eyes it cant get fairer than that. in the event that you cant attend the day a envelope will be drawn on your behalf.
Extreme koi forum (Lazerus) has offered to donate a trophy for the largest koi at the end of the year from collection.
however i will be requireing that participates send in a photo roughly every three months so we can all keep up to date.
at this point i find it prudent to let the forum members know that all the shiro's are sold already.
so i guess now is the ideal time to say let the best koi win and here are the original photo's we were sent when the koi were in Japan.

i shall be going round to JP's this weekend to take some pictures of the KOI in the vat individual koi photo's will be taken after the whole QT process is complete.
Eds has also said that he is prepared to speak to the BKKS to see if the final pics could be judged for potental by a fully trained BKKS judge and maybe another award for that but we will have to watch this space on that one.
thanks Ed.

I haven't been able to attend the Council meeting today as I've got a load of work to do today (busy kinda doing it as we speak - honestly!!!) but I'll email the JSC rep and get his opinion on it and see what we can do. Will be in touch as soon as possible with the options and then see what you guys want to do.

just to keep you up to speed went to see and photo the shiro's last night.

and ive decided to keep the lot ;) (i wish) they look so stunning, settled in nicely and almost ready for you guys...

just need to bring the temps back to 18c which a ideal temp for you guys to collect them. otherwise they are ready for you and look the dogs danglies (dinkles in your case Ash) try and get the individual pic's up on here over this weekend.
