Notice "Cancellation of Koi Show"
We would like to thank all hobbyist and vendors for their support in our endeavor for North Idaho
Koi Keepers first NIKK/ZNA "Connected Through Koi" koi show. The show was scheduled for July 26th to be located on the beautiful gardens of Hoshi Koi,
We believe Koi Shows support our hobby in a very positive way, educating the public and koi keepers alike, in our pursuit
of better koi keeping husbandry. We also believe our koi hobby supports many vendors in their pursuit of educating and supporting
the public with various products for both koi keeping and landscaping products and designs.
Since January our club had put together a plan to build this show for the July dates. We have been successful on many
fronts regards to location, set up and Judges support. Unfortunately, unforeseen circumstances during this past month has
made it impossible to move forward with the show. We regretfully are sending out this memo as a notice to cancel the show.
Once again, we want to thank all of you that had expressed interest and support, unfortunately we will have to table the
show for this year.
