Thanks Nancy, actually I didn't see a single goldfish I would want, but the show was really fun and interesting, and I'm glad I went. It was in a large activity center that doubles as a basketball arena, to give you an idea of the size. Visitors were channeled around the perimeter of the room.Vendors were backed up to the wall all the way around, and all the show tubs were set up around the center creating the one ailse around the room. The judged part consisted of about 30 big show tubs, and each looked to be about 6-7 ft. diameter.

It was impossible to take good pictures of the show fish because each tank was heavily aerated and the lights of the arena created a lot of glare. At the risk of boring you to death, I'm posting all the pictures I took simply because it's easier than trying to cull the worst ones.

Looks like a nice show. Pretty koi & fancy goldfish. Were there not any Sarasa or Shubunkins there?

Nope, I didn't see a single one. I honestly expected I might see one I couldn't live without, but no such luck. I guess slender body goldfish are not that popular...at least not with the people at this show.
