From the President:
Welcome to the South Carolina Koi and Water Garden Society. Our club is a group of hobbyists in the Upstate who are interested in keeping Koi and goldfish and water gardens. You might currently have a pond but would like to learn more about your fish. Like a lot of us, you are fascinated by the sound of moving water. Our club members have a wide variety of water features and if that’s your thing, you are welcome. What’s really cool about our club is that we all share our interest in the hobby so freely whether it’s a small pond with a couple of fish, to the large ponds with multiple waterfalls and awesome Koi. The neat thing about being interested in Koi and water gardens is that you can start small, but there is no limit to where you can go with it. And, Koi people love to help others learn. I see this time and time again at various events.
If you want to really get into Koi, you’re in the right place. We have a pond tour in the Spring where you can see some of the most amazing ponds and Koi you’ll ever see. We put on a world class Koi show in the Fall, which is being called the largest single club Koi show on the East coast. We have vendors come from all over the country to exhibit at our show and we are proud that our show helps support some of the most deserving charities in our area.
We have a monthly meeting on the 3rd Saturday of each month, weather permitting (except June and December) usually at a member’s home with a potluck dinner and would love to see you there. Check our website for the date, time and location. Also, see our site for information on upcoming events and come on out. You’ll find a great group of folks from beginners to serious hobbyists to professional breeders to pond builders and everything in between. Want to get plugged in and see what we’re all so excited about? Come on and join us. The water is great!
