      WWKC VK&GF Show Seminar Thread

      As part of the 3rd Annual WWKC Virtual Koi & Goldfish Show we will have special seminars online. The seminars will be hosted on a webinar program called WebEx. They will be limited to a maximum of 23 attendees. To become one of the attendees, you need to send Susan Reed a PM expressing your desire to be included, stating the seminar you would like to attend. The PM must have a valid email address for her to have the seminar send your invitation. Without the invitation, you cannot attend. The seminar schedule and a few details are as follows:

      Saturday, Dec 5:

      12:00 – 1:00 Richard Steele will be talking on water gardens, design, plants, and maintenance. Richard is a past president of the Central Virginia Water Garden Club and current newsletter editor. He has been ponding for 13 seasons.

      I'll say something when I feel I have something worth saying. I'm not a fan of flapping my lips just because they are there.
