Anyone that's attended a dinner dance event as part of a koi show will know that it's one of the many highlights of the weekend where you can let your hair down, relax and have a few (too many) drinks with friends and acquaintances from within the hobby.
So, after the success of the 2011 Summer Dinner Dance plans are in place to do the same again for the 2012 show and once again we'll be using the facilities of The Crown Lodge Hotel just a few miles from the show ground.
The hotel and the meal went down fantastically well in 2011 and as we've already had a number of enquiries for 2012, we're sure this will sell out quickly.
If you'd like to attend, then please download the booking form, complete and return.
