UMKC Winter Videoconferences

Koi keeping is an all year hobby. 


The new Upper Midwest Koi Club board is pleased to announce videoconference club meetings for the months of November, December, January and February. It's a great way to keep learning and exchanging ideas about koi.


Invitations to participate will be sent only to members in good standing (meaning you have paid your club dues for 2019). If you did not join the club this year and would like to be invited to the videoconference meetings, you can pay a prorated membership fee of $15.00 for the next four months.


Our planned monthly videoconference topics will be:


9:00 am November 16, 2019  
--What kind of medicine should you have on hand? 
--What kind of potential problems are common over the winter and how can they be avoided/treated?
--What’s happening in Japan this fall?
--How do I purchase a koi that I see online? What should I look for when buying online?


9:00 am December 14, 2019  
--Quick ID of koi varieties
--Some basic Japanese terms
--Talk about tosai - what to look for, what are the chances they will become champions, why are they fun
--Quarantining new koi purchases


9:00 am January 11, 2020
