Make plans to spend a weekend in Newport Oregon! Hosted by the PNKCA and The OSU Aquatic Animal Health Program at The Hatfield Marine Science Center, the 2020 PNKCA Convention will be a fun weekend filled with friends and koi. Talks will be directed to topics we haven’t heard before. They will cover what is done there, how it aids our koi keeping skills, under-standing pathology reports and much more. There will be behind the scenes tours of the Mark Hatfield Marine Science Center, Aquarium Science Center and Newport Coast Aquarium. We also will have a DRY Lab (new this year) and Glass Blowing Classes available to experience making your own glass float. With more to come!

2019 ZNA Northern Mid-West Koi Show
“Here’s the recipient of our ZNA Northwest Friendship Award. A size 6 (60.1-70 cm Class) Shiro Utsuri, owned by Mike and Michelle Pfeffer. I selected the koi based on quality. As you can see, it has fantastic skin and body shape, the sumi while not much of patter was impeccable. I did not win any majors, however very deserving of recognition.”
