Ueno Showa : Grow & Show : The Judging

Postby Sopersonic74 » Fri Aug 02, 2019 10:26 am

Morning all :handgestures-thumbup:

Would you believe that we are nearly a year on from this great grow & Show :eek: :lol: :mrgreen:

So with this in mind, we need to bring the competition to an end :handgestures-thumbup:

As mentioned on the original post we have 3 prizes of £150 each, for most growth in a heated pond, most growth in an unheated pond and best development regardless of heat or not :handgestures-thumbup: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Judging will be performed by a qualified Koi judge (which we will confirm shortly)

What happens next then...

I need via email to stuart.soper@live.co.uk a photo of your koi along with it's new measurement (honesty please :handgestures-thumbup: )
same rules about the photo to make it easy to judge and to give you the best chances, i.e. head to the bottom of the photo, in a blue bowl, clean water etc etc :mrgreen:

the cut off for this is Sunday September 1st :handgestures-thumbup: :mrgreen:

So you have just over 4 weeks to get this done, which should be ok for all regardless of holidays etc :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I myself will probably leave it to the last weekend to maximise the growth :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anway - hope it's clear, please drop a note on this thread when you have done it please :handgestures-thumbup:

In that case you may as well photograph yours and let us all see what we have to beat!! The judging is not even a factor with ours unless there is a wooden spoon award for development. There again if any have turned shiro muji they would take it from ours or should I say Dave's as it is still a showa!

Sorry to hear this it is always really upsetting when they die for no apparent reason.
