This past weekend 18/19 May we had the OFS Show in Bloemfontein.
Congratulations to Hannes van Aswegen for once again winning Grand and Reserve Grand Champions! Both koi were selected and bought in Japan by Dream Koi.
Hannes is very well know in the showing circuit and has won numerous Grand Champions over the years. Besides showing he also helps sponsor many of our shows.
GC this year was special in that it was won with a Showa. Something that Hannes has wanted to do for a long time! This Showa was bought from the Momotaro Auction as nisai and Hannes has successfully grown her to 82cm and kept her quality to a high standard. Congratulations Hannes!
RGC went to a special Sakai Hiroshima Sanke. She is only 72cm so has got some way to go in the future. Her body shape and skin is outstanding!
Hannes is bringing his top koi to the South African National Show in Durban in July this year. This promises to be a outstanding Show which will have most of the top koi in the country competing for the National honours.
Next up on the showing calendar is the Gauteng Show at Crest on the 1/2 of June.
