Welcome 

Happy 22nd Anniversary
to the Florida East Coast Koi and Pond Club

No meetings in July and August, See You in September

Thanks to Peggy Fricke for hosting a very successful well attended meeting for June. Mike Tennyson gave a very intersting demo of his new microscope with digital  hook up to his computer. Also, Mike McCue informed us about the restoration of the bird wading pond at the Marine Science Center. Please contact Mike McCue, Marine Science Center at Ponce Inlet if you would like to help with the bird sanctuary wading pond project.

Peggy moved to Palm Coast from the Atlanta area where she was a long time member of the Atlanta Koi Club. She is looking forward to construction of her new pond. Peggy welcomes our help and any suggestions that will help attain her goal of completing her new pond.

Mike Tennyson’s wife, Susan, recently gave Mike a new microscope for his birthday present. It is a tri-occular scope that includes a lens for video capture of the image on the slide. Mike will be bringing the new scope to the meeting to demonstrate. Parasites anyone?

Mike McCue, Curator of the Marine Science Center at Ponce Inlet, will be at the meeting to give members an overview of their project to rebuild the new flight cage with wading pond following destruction by Hurricane Matthew. The new wading pond is part of their bird hospital. Your help and/or suggestions for completion of the rebuild are welcome.

Please give Bill Rogers a call (386-843-2025) or Email if you have suggestions for a topic (other than eats) for our forthcoming meetings as we are running low on ideas.

Thanks for volunteering to host meetings and your support for the Central Florida Koi Show in Orlando.

Mark Your Calendar now for second weekend in March 2020 to attend the Central Florida Koi Show in Orlando. The Florida East Coast Koi and Pond Club is one of five sponsoring clubs for the Central Florida Koi Show held the second weekend in March in Orlando. 

A special thanks to all our club members who attended the show, entered koi, and volunteered to help put on the 2019 show. Our members helped the storage, maintenance and repair of equipment trailers,  transported equipment trailers to and from the show, worked set-up and break down, recorded results during the judging, assisted in the hospitality room, and helped in the office with registration. 

Results and winner photos for the 2019 show are now up at cfks.org. Read more….

About the Florida East Coast Koi and Pond Club: As noted above, the club was founded 21 years ago in January just ahead of the Central Florida Koi Show known at that time as the All Florida Koi and Pond sow (AFKAPS). Two of the original couples, Susanna and John Trittschuh (DeLand) and Sherri and Joe White (Port Orange) and Margaret Gillen (DeLand) attended the first meeting. Other charter members soon followed; Kathy and Jack Dunlop (Ormond). All are still active members of the club.
