2014 Koi Show News

2014 Koi Show News


Congratulations to our friends and customers who entered their Kloubec Koi in the Midwest Pond & Koi Society’s 22 nd Annual Koi Show. The show was held at the Darien SportsPlex, near Chicago on July 11-13, 2014. THREE Major Trophies and seven First Place awards were received by hobbyists who entered their Kloubec Koi, as well as many ribbons.


Ray and Charlene Cebulski entered their Kloubec Sanke that they purchased two years ago from the Kloubec Koi Farm. Their Sanke has grown into a Size 4 beauty in their pond, and took the “Best in Variety-Sanke” honor. This particular Sanke has ideal characteristics of a prize winning Sanke. Along with a perfect body shape it has a clean white Shiroji base and beautiful soft Beni pattern. The Sumi markings are spaced perfectly throughout, including a large shoulder pattern. The Cebulski’s Sanke competed against 17 Sankes and was one of two Sankes to earn a major category and trophy. In fact, the only other Sanke to win ‘hardware’ was the Supreme Grand Champion!! Congratulations Char and Ray on your beautiful Best in Variety Sanke! We are excited to watch this kois progress and follow her show career!


Also at the MPKS Show, Joe Cook earned the “Best in Variety-Hikari Muji” trophy with his bright yellow Yamabuki Ogon that he purchased from Kloubec Koi Farm. Joe has been growing this fish for several years and the koi is now a Size 4. Great job, Joe! Additionally, Kathleen Simms won the “Best in Variety-Longfin” category by entering a stunning Hikari-Moyo Butterfly from the Kloubec show booth. Way to go!!!
