We are fortunate to have members who are able to pitch in on Thursday morning with set-up as well as throughout the weekend and with Sunday tear down and clean-up.   The Koi Society Koi Show Award was given to Elbert & Johnnie Smith who are one of the couples who have been here all 5 years, from Thursday through Saturday even though they do not show koi.  Johnnie and Elbert are MKPC members but their primary Club in which they are very active and each hold an office, is The Metro Detroit Pond & Garden Club.  Yet each year they donate an entire weekend to the MKPC KOI Show to help insure our Show is successful.  This dedication to helping fellow koi hobbyists is outstanding and much appreciated.

Our Friday night meet and greet dinner is the best I have ever been to, thanks to Martha Conrad.  Martha and Mike Conrad have hosted this dinner since our first Koi Show in 2012.  They welcome us all into their lovely home, the pond is beautiful, the gardens reflect a Japanese theme but, best of all, Martha loves to cook a variety of dishes and is outstanding at it.  Everyone, MKPC members and koi hobbyists traveling to our show, look forward to this Friday night, it sets the tone for the weekend.  We can’t thank Martha and Mike enough for what they do.

As we all know, it takes a lot of work to put on a Koi Show.  When you have someone or several some ones, who help whenever it is needed, the show chair is very fortunate.  Bruce Modetz did so much to help out and to reduce the workload for the chairpersons, from being a sounding board for various thoughts and ideas, brainstorming and researching ways to help with costs, helping with set up and take down, to completely taking care of the show site meals for members, vendors and visitors.  Ray would call Bruce and Bruce would say “Don’t worry about it, I got it”.   That’s a simple statement that provides so much relief for the Chairperson.  The best part was, he did follow through and take care of what he promised.

We have known Bruce for a number of years now, and he is so enthusiastic about ponding and koi and this enthusiasm reflects in everything he does all year for the Michigan Koi and Pond Club.
