About ZNA Potomac:                                                                                   

ZNA Potomac Koi Club is a chapter of Zen Nippon Arinkai and affiliated with the AKCA. ZNA Potomac serves Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia. The members come from all areas and bring together a wealth of knowledge and experience. The members range from seasoned pond keepers to new hobbyists. Ponds range from preformed hard plastic with a few hundred gallons to expansive custom designed ponds with thousands of gallons. All hobbyists are welcome and everyone learns. We sincerely hope you enjoy your time at our website and we look forward to meeting you at our next event!

The 2015 season was a ton of fun! A huge thanks to all the club members and supporters that shared it with us. Please see our 2016 schedule below and we hope to see you soon!
