    Great get together of old members and some visitors that are now new members and we welcome you all.  We had the opportunity to shake hands with our sister club, the Santa Clara Valley Koi & Water Club and look forward to future mingling.

    Heads up to anyone looking for fish for your pond, we have a couple recent posts in the Forum about Rescue and Adooption.

    In a nutshell...we had a great couple hours mingling and catching up.  The koi pond  at the Hayward Japanese Gardens certainly needs some work.  Maybe at another time we could revisit how we could help make it better.

    Greetings Members, our former domain is tied up in internet red tape limbo.  We are still the same initials SFBAKC.org but expanded to SFBayAreaKoiClub.org.


    In an effort to increase our web presence as a premier koi organization here in the SF Bay Area, the club officers have supported this domain name change and we are moving forward with excitement.


    New content is in the works, so check back often.  As of 10:00am you can Comment and share your thoughts.


    Yours in Koi-

    The Board of Directors of the SF Bay Area Koi Club


    P.S.  This mornings first email did not contain all the web links to our site so I sent out a second. Sorry 'bout that.

    Eight of us members traveled to Koi Enterprise in West Sacramento and we met with Tony Quintero.  He is an extremely knowledgeable new generation of koi keepers.  His facility and business is top drawer.  Koi Enterprise has a stunning selection of Japanese Koi.  We had great conversation and learned alot.


    We got up and close with adding Islandscapes.  Which is a great way to add plants to a pond without ledges or ponds with large fish that eat any plant material.
