Running a Koi Show
Have you ever wondered what is involved in running a koi show? John Hall, from the Chicago area's Midwest Pond and Koi Club, will let us know. He got his start with a 3000 gallon garden style pond, was "bitten by the koi bug" and is now chairing his club's 25th annual koi auction this year. Join us at our meeting Tuesday, October 25th.
The meeting, free to both members and non-members, will be held at the Missouri Botanical Garden Ridgeway Center, Beaumont Room at 7pm. We hope to see you there!

Are you considering putting your pond on tour for the 2017 Pond-O-Rama? It's never too early to start thinking about it!
Would you be interested in chairing Pond-O-Rama 2017? There's a lot of knowledge from past years in the Pond-O-Rama notebook that comes along with the job: schedules, advertisers, past vendors, etc., and lots of good people willing to help.
