Dick & Joann Benbow joined the group for our June meeting at Dan & Sharon Olson's pond. We got to talk
about four of the 2008 growout koi - Olsons and Andersons have raised them and they've all grown into nice koi. And
some new arrivals from Quality Koi were ready to go home to their new ponds after enjoying a quarantine period. John
Seifert smoked a turkey, so along with a great assortment of potluck dishes brought by members and some hamburgers Dan barbecued,
we enjoyed a wonderful picnic. Gene presented Diana Lynn (and Frank) the 2009 AKCA Koi Person of the Year award.
Lots of discussion on the Bakki filter systems - this group is never without something to talk about. Great gathering
- and thanks to Dan & Sharon for hosting!!!
