Re: WAKO 21st Annual Show
The Wisconsin Area Killifish Organization (WAKO)
presents the 21st Annual
Egg-Laying Toothcarp Jamboree
WAKO KILLIFISH SHOW AND AUCTION
November 3 & 4, 2001
The members of WAKO invite you to participate in their 21st annual,
sanctioned, 13 class, all Killifish Show and Auction. As you may know, WAKO
is proud to have won the coveted Jeff Bilbrough Challenge Award for three
years running! This award is presented by the A.K.A. to the club with the
most winning entries at the National Convention, which we believe is
reflective of the quality of fish you'll be seeing at our annual Show. WAKO
shows are known for their hospitality, great selection of outstanding
Killies and as a meeting place to mingle with noted killikeepers from
throughout the Midwest.
Besides Killies, the show features: free admission, a live foods table,
raffle, behind the scenes tour of Milw. Zoo Aquarium building, 2 seminars,
a hospitality room with complimentary food and drinks, and an auction of an
estimated 300-500 prs. of Killies and plants.
