Thank yous All Around From MAKC!

Dear MAKC Members,

I would like to personally thank Shawn Rosen of Koi Market in Huntington, NY for donating the wonderful poster and registration form for the AKCA Wet Lab.  Shawn has been a long time support of the MAKC.

I would also like to thank Mat McCann of Beni Hanna Nishikgoi of New Jersey for being the guest speaker at the AKCA banquet.  There will also be a tour of Beni Hanna Nishikgoi!

Last but now least I would like to thank Bev Letard of South Africa for allowing us to use her artwork for the poster.  You can see Bev’s work at

Registration for the Associated Koi Clubs of America Koi Health Advisor Certified Wet Lab being held on June 24-25, 2017 in Pennsville, New Jersey at the Hampton Inn Pennsville, is now open!  You can register online or by mail

We have not yet received the link for the discounted room rates for the Hampton Inn in Pennsville, New Jersey.  Once I received the link I will email it out to everyone.

The AKCA Wet Lab gives the Club the opportunity to raise money for  activities that the Club Chapters hosts.  So far the Club has taken in over $2,000.00 worth of donations of Lladro and Noritake porcelain pieces.  This does not take into account the donations from  AKCA.  I am reaching out to our members for donations for the auction.  It can be anything like items for a pond or craft items. 

If you are an artist and would like to donate an item for the auction we will promote you and the item on social media.
