Welcome 

Happy 22nd Anniversary
to the Florida East Coast Koi and Pond Club

Greetings,

Our February meeting will be on Sunday the 17th at 2pm and hosted at the Palm Coast home of Susan and Mike Tennyson.

For those of you who have followed the recent construction and opening of the pond over a year ago this is an opportunity to see the changes time has brought to the Tennyson pond.  We’ve asked Mike to present an update on the maturation of the pond, any updates in his filter system, and general tips he may have for someone thinking about a DIY pond construction project.

The Tennyson home is not far of of I-95 at 109 Webster Lane, Palm Coast, 32164.

Directions:From Volusia County just take I-95 North to the Palm Coast exit 289 (you will see the blue water tower on the left). At the bottom of the exit ramp turn left. You will go about a mile and then  turn left onto Belle Terre. There is a Publix and a Circle K at this turn. Proceed past another Circle K on your right and a large Catholic Church on your left. Make first right turn after the  Church onto Pine Lakes Parkway. Take first right onto Wellington. Take a right at the SECOND Webster Lane. We are the third house on the right. Can't miss us. You can see the waterfall from the street. We are next to the "Pepto Bismal" house.  Phone 386-216-0354 You may contact Mike at: miketennyson@gmail.com.

Would you like to host a meeting at your home and pond? Please contact Bill Rogers or Barbara Kincade if you would like to host a meeting. While most of our meetings involve a pot luck meal, food other than some snacks and drinks is not a requirement. When the host does have expenses for main dish preparation, the club does offer reimbursement.

Mark Your Calendar now for March 22-24, 2019 to attend the Central Florida Koi Show in Orlando. The Florida East Coast Koi and Pond Club is one of five sponsoring clubs for the Central Florida Koi Show held the second weekend in March in Orlando. 

A special thanks to all our club members who attended the show, entered koi, and volunteered to help put on the 2018 show. Our members helped the storage, maintenance and repair of equipment trailers,  transported equipment trailers to and from the show, worked set-up and break down, recorded results during the judging, assisted in the hospitality room, and helped in the office with registration.

About the Florida East Coast Koi and Pond Club: As noted above, the club was founded 21 years ago in January just ahead of the Central Florida Koi Show known at that time as the All Florida Koi and Pond sow (AFKAPS). Two of the original couples, Susanna and John Trittschuh (DeLand) and Sherri and Joe White (Port Orange) and Margaret Gillen (DeLand) attended the first meeting. Other charter members soon followed; Kathy and Jack Dunlop (Ormond). All are still active members of the club.
