Here's the deal for the Road Trip:

8 a.m., Saturday:  We depart from Gridley (Call for Directions)

10 a.m.:  Arrive at the Show site.  (Admission is FREE)  We will spend the day at the show, but go out for lunch, so plan on
bringing lunch money, as well as some cash to enter the raffles!

After the show, we may all go out to dinner if we're not too exhausted, and then head for home that evening.
ROAD TRIP to the MPKS 21st Annual Koi & Goldfish Show!!!
Anyone who wants to come along is welcome, however, seating is limited, so let me know as soon as you can if you are
interested in attending.  The number of people we have going will determine the type of vehicle we take, so I need to know in
advance.  (Of course, you CAN drive up yourself if you want to, but who would want to?)  Refreshments and snacks will be
served on the way up and back.  There will be is plenty of room for plants, and I will bring insulated fish boxes for any fish
purchased, so if you want something REALLY spectacular, or you just want to have a great time, plan on coming!  Please e-mail
me to reserve your seat at
Please e-mail me if you have any questions at pondgal@gridcom.net
Here in Illinois, we are fortunate to have a number of small, local pond and water garden clubs, as well as two large, very
active koi clubs.  The
Midwest Pond and Koi Society hosts an annual Koi and Goldfish Show in July, and an annual pond tour of
residential Chicagoland ponds for two consecutive weekends in July.  Koi shows and pond tours are a lot of fun, and wonderful
learning experiences for all levels of koi and goldfish keepers.  Passion for Ponds hosts annual road trips to shows hosted by the
Midwest Pond and Koi Society to anyone interested in attending these fine shows.  More information on Road Trips is at the
bottom of this page.
