We are pleased to announce that the Mid-Columbia Koi & Pond Club is bringing in Joel Acker from Summit View Koi (svkoi.com) in Puyallup, WA, ph#253-230-2250 for an all-day seminar on Japanese Koi here in Richland on Saturday April 21, 2012.
The seminar will be held at Ron & Gloria Boedeker's home, 415 Skamania St, Richland, WA 99354, starting at 9:30am and running to 4:00pm.
Joel will be bringing a selection of his hand selected koi in different quality/price ranges to compare during the meeting and he will be discussing the general pond requirements for successfully keeping quality koi. Most of these koi will be offered for sale afterward.
Summit View Koi is a small, but growing family operation in the Tacoma area. Joel has been traveling to Japan and has establish a good relationship with
some of the better, but less well known breeders, so he has been successful in bringing in high quality koi at a more affordable price.
We will be having door prizes and raffles, including a live koi raffle. This will not be a pot-luck, but we will have refreshments & light snacks available and there are plenty of eating places close by.
The seminar will be open to the public and we extend a special invitation to the NIKK and Inland Empire clubs to join us for this special event.
If you are interested in attending, please RSVP so I can get a head count how many to plan for.
