    reading elsewhere...responses of those visiting on the first day are very mixed..not many dealers selling koi and very little in the way of bargains

    Well it was my first and probably last time!
    I enjoyed seeing some nice show fish and meeting some of the people ive not met before but was underwhelmed by the dealers stalls and prices.
    I really couldnt justify the 400 mile round trip so will check out the NR Show in Sept to see how it compares

    My first National had a great weekend met lots of new people and also a few friends. I think i would go again but was a little disapointed with the vats as many had the same types of koi in them.

    Met the famous wooden man NIGEL lol! on Sunday but never spotted Pete think he must have been hiding from Simon lol!

    This one of G



    and Carl and G

    Wow aint my hair long!!!! Will it stil be that long the next time we meet??? silent silent silent

    I probably will give it a go again next year,mainly due to the fact certain members on other sites who are BKKS Comittee folk are promising something a bit different .
    I had no problem with the price of entry or the quality of the fish which was superb but something has to be done about the deals to make it more attractive.
