Hi Everyone, wanted to share about the upcoming event in case you are not aware. I am on a one man guerrilla marketing campaign today. This is going to be an awesome and educational event, if you are in the area please help get the word out. Besides shopping vendors in person and the educational talks you make great contacts in the goldfish breeding community. This event is how I got into breeding seriously and made contacts with other breeders I now keeping english veils, philly veils, tosakin, azuma nishki, and blue egg phoenix. Jeff Thompson will be speaking for all you ranchu folks. Very excited, details below.
The West Coast Goldfish Palooza is an educational event with lectures, a competition for hobbyist, a direct buy opportunity from some outstanding vendors along with some other fun activities like a raffle and live fish auction. Proceeds go toward funding the event, future events, and to contribute to the cost of the show tanks.
If you are not familiar with The Goldfish Council "The Goldfish Council (TGC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the education and research of goldfish. Our goal is to educate the Goldfish Community on care, breeding, collection, improvement, health, environmental management, and the history of the domestic goldfish (Carassius auratus) as well as to conduct scientific research related to the health, husbandry, and genetics. We do so by organizing educational events and studies internationally. These events include; lectures, blogs, seminars, research roundtables, web based research, exhibitions, and judging shows."
