Well, here we go again, an opportunity for you all to get a boost during these uncertain times.
I'll try to keep it short, but please enter, and don't think your koi are not good enough!! Remember, this Show has always been about the grass roots hobbyists, it is not about koi that cost thousands, it is to encourage those who would not normally show their koi. We would also appreciate support on the forum, a good old fashioned forum, instead of Facebook.
There will be trophies as usual and also awards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in size and class. Proceeds will determine the quality of the trophies, plus help with hosting costs etc!
PLEASE READ EVERYTHING CAREFULLY, ESPECIALLY BLOKES,.... BLOKES NEVER READ INSTRUCTIONS
HOW TO ENTER ( JohnB could you ask a six year old to do yours please )
Go to http://show.chatterkoi.uk/login and register. Fill in the required details, username and password ( this can be different to your ChatterKoi details). Another page will then open.
Choose a VAT size ( doesn't matter which one) . Once you have registered you can then Bench your Koi. Just fill in the relevant details for each fish entered, up to a maximum of 10 koi. ( up to 6 koi cost £10, 7-10 koi cost £15).
