SAVE THE DATE!
Associated Koi Clubs of America Koi Health Advisor Certified Wet Lab coming to the East Coast in 2017 and the Mid Atlantic Koi Club will be hosting it!
The last AKCA Wet Lab was held in 2006 in Buffalo, NY. I attended that lab and it was fantastic!
The AKCA Wet Lab will be on June 24-25, 2017 in Pennsville, New Jersey at the Hampton Inn Pennsville.
Mat McCann of Beni Hanna Nishikgoi http://www.benihannanishikigoi.com/
will be the guest speaker at the banquet. I applied for a speaker grant of $250.00 and the Club was awarded the grant this past week!
Shawn Rosen of Koi Market http://www.koimarket.com/ has donated the poster and registration form for the Wet Lab and Bev Letard http://www.bevletard.com/ has granted the Club permission to use her artwork for the poster.
At the banquet there will be two auctions and a 50/50 raffle. One auction will raise money for Koi Herpes Virus (KHV) research. The other auction and the 50/50 raffle proceeds will be divided between the AKCA and the MAKC. AKCA will seek donations from their advertisers in the Koi USA magazine. My goal for the Club is to bring in $2,000.00 worth of donations for the auction. We are off to a great start with a donation of a Noritake Porcelain Crane worth $400.00! Money raised at the banquet will go toward activities that the Club hosts.
Once the registration is open for the Wet Lab I will send out an email notifying everyone. I strongly suggest that if you are planning to attend sign up early since this class fills up very quickly and there are a limited number of seats available.
