The last time the club members came together was three years ago in June of 2010. Membership interest fell dramatically as our Las Vegas housing market declined. While we always enjoyed getting together to visit and learn about koi keeping there seemed to be more pressing matters for much of the membership. There is a core group of members who still stay in touch but no official meetings have been held. Our standing with the State of Nevada and our dues to the AKCA are still current. Our appointed AKCA representative and the Treasurer are still in place. The other offices are not filled.
I cannot tell you the number of emails received over the past three years asking to help move koi from homes that were in foreclosure. Thankfully those calls have dramatically reduced over the past few months. The recovering housing market is evident by the number of new people inquiring about the club and assistance with their ponds and keeping koi.
Please send me a message if you are interested in participating in gathering together to discuss the direction of the club.
It has been suggested that having a meeting a couple of times a year instead of monthly may work for a while. Still others want to have a party to relaunch the club.
Everyone misses the camaraderie we shared while becoming better koi keepers.
Please let me know your thoughts and willingness to participate in putting something together for a great group of people.
Have a beautiful day,
