Announcement regarding the
2020 BKKS National Koi Show
It is with deep regret that the BKKS Show Committee has made the decision to cancel the 2020 National Koi Show. Having reviewed the current situation where all large organisations have cancelled large Public events planned for both July and August, we felt we had little option but to cancel the Show. It is clear that it will be some time before we could be in a position to hold a National Koi Show.
We would like to thank all those Exhibitors, Dealers and Suppliers for their support for the 2020 Show and we hope you will all feel you can continue that support for the 2021 Show.
Our Show Chairman will contact all Dealers and Suppliers in the next day or so.
All our existing Show Committee have agreed to continue in their roles for 2021 BKKS National Koi Show. On the plus side, a lot of organisation has already been done which is transferable to the 2021 Show.
2020 Exhibitors who have already booked and paid for a vat
As for exhibitors who have already booked vats, your payment can be transferred to the 2021 Show to book your vat now and you will be eligible to take part in the 2020 Photographic Show. Alternatively, you can request a full refund if you wish but you will be unable to take part in the proposed 2020 Photographic Show.
Dinner Dance bookings
For all those who have booked Show Party tickets we will be organising a full refund, which you will receive via either PayPal or BACS transfer depending on how you paid for your booking.
The 2020 BKKS National Photographic Show
Instead of our Normal National Koi Show the Show Committee is proposing to organise a National Photographic Show for 2020, subject to enough of the pre-booked Exhibitors willing to take part. Those eligible to take part will be all exhibitors who decide to choose the option of moving their payment to the 2021 Show.
We will only be judging the major awards and a certificate plus an award trophy will be presented for the following awards:-
Reserve Grand Champion
Best Non- Gosanke
The Show Committee is currently organising the procedures for the 2020 National Photographic Show and will publicise them in due course.
BKKS Show Chairman
As a National body, the British Koi-Keepers Society provides support for the local Koi Clubs. We consider these Clubs are a vital part of the hobby and it should be our role to provide a central infrastructure to assist them wherever possible.
