The first Koi Show on the South African calendar has just happened down in George.With over 300 koi entered there was some good competition.
Drikus van Dyk has been a passionate koi keeper for a good few years now and has made the trip up to George from Cape Town and won numerous titles.
This year was no exception when he took both Supreme Grand Chanpion and Reserve Grand Champion with Dream Koi supplied Sakai Sankes. Interestingly the SGC was bought as tosai:-
Charl van der Merwe is a local entrant who has also been regularly successful with his koi.
He recently selected and purchased an 80cm Karashigoi from Dream Koi that won numerous accolades at the Show- Superior Grand Champion(3rd best koi on Show),Best Non Gosanke, Jumbo B and Best in Special Variety. Well done Charl!
