Some of the NIKK members took a road trip to Tacoma for the Puget Sound Koi Club's 2008 Koi Show. Greg & Judy,
Kyle, Dan & Sharon, Carmen & Gunter, and Gene & Phyllis enjoyed the chance to meet and greet some old friends
and meet some new friends at Hoshi Koi. Judges Larry Gill, Erwin ? and Tom Ayers seemed to enjoy the afternoon and complimented
the club on a great selection of koi.
At the evening banquet, Tom Ayers explained how the judges determined the Grand and Reserve Champion - no easy choice
as you can see.
Dan & Sharon were the only club members to actually enter fish in the show - apparently healthy show-ready fish under
18" are hard to come by. And one of their little entries was awarded the Reserve Champion title - Dan is apparently
ready to use the beautiful crystal mugs awarded along with a matching pitcher!!
