Genki Nishikigoi 1st Annual Koi Grow Out Event (G.O)


Where;
Our store location 1850 S 10th Street Ste 14, San Jose CA 95112 Tel. (408) 295-4500. The event is open to everyone, no limit on the number of purchase tickets (koi).

When;
Saturday March 30th at 10 am. Refreshment and drink will be serve.

Why a tosai G.O event;
The main purpose is to have fun and share tosai appreciation. A time for hobbyists to come together, try their luck and test their tosai raising skills. Then return them for judging along siblings at Genki 1st Annual Young Koi Show next spring 2014 (date to be determine). For those that can not attend, we will ask our judges to critique your koi when you email updated photos next spring.

Prepping the event;
During Kevin's 2012 Niigata fall buying trip, 51 Isa Showa tosai were hand-picked by the breeder Mitsunori while Kevin handpicked 20 Maruboshi tosai Kohaku specifically for this event. They were around 5"-6" and just 4 months old at the time. Imported to our facility in Nov. they have been growing out in our indoor facility now averaging 10"-12" with some pushing 13 inches at just 9 months young. You can be sure to get healthy quality tosai at great a price/value.

The breeder;
Isa Koi Farm - producer of top quality Showa. Their home bred Showa have achieved Grand Champion at Niigata Nogyosai koi show and many top awards at national shows such as Best in size/Best in class etc. Isa Showa are late bloomer and can attain jumbo size.
Maruboshi Koi Farm- specialize in breeding Kohaku. Their own bred Kohaku have won Grand Champion twice at All Japan Young Koi Show as well as many other top awards. Their Kohaku are especially beautiful between 60-75cm.

How this event work;
To encourage many participants, we will open the event to everyone locally as well as out off state hobbyists as they too want to join in on the fun and obtain quality koi. There will be 2 categories of koi to choose from; Kohaku and Showa, 71 koi total on a first come basis. To make the event fun and fair for all, we chose a lottery system based on customer feedbacks. These koi are available to view at our shop or via our web site link "koi grow out project". If you are coming to our shop to hand-pick your koi, doors will open at 10:00 am. You have an hour to view the koi and put your name in the lottery. We will draw names at 11 am.
Example; if you are interested in 3 koi, your name will be entered into the lottery 3 times. At 11 am we draw names and participants can then select their koi in order. If you are unable to attend, you may pre-purchase your koi selection slots. Example; if you want 2 koi, you purchase 2 tickets, and submit a list of say 10 koi you want in ordered from favorite to least. When your name is drawn, the first available koi on your list will be chosen. If for some reason the koi you chose is not available, then we will refund your purchase. For those that can not attend, we will pick your koi from your order list when your name is drawn. Deadline to buy your ticket and submit your koi selection list with payment is 3/29.

The koi show;
We will invite a Japanese breeder from Niigata and a local judge to judge these tosai so it is our hope that many will return to share/compete after a growing season. We will host our 1st Annual Young Koi Show during the same time.

The awards;
The judges will pick out a Grand Champion, a Best Tategoi and a most growth tosai (length)
1 Grand Champion will be awarded a GC trophy from Japan donated by the breeder. Also a 44lbs bag of FD Hi-Grow sinking koi food
2 Best tategoi will receive a $200 Genki Koi gift certificate
3 MGT (most growth tosai) will be awarded $100 Genki Koi gift certificate

Closing,
We really appreciate everyone who have helped support this event, thank you. Again, while this is a serious learning exercise, we at Genki Koi want to emphasize bringing hobbyists together to celebrate their passion while having fun. We hope many of you will participate in this fun and educational event. Please do not hesitate to call or email us if you have any question.

Best regards,
