To all IKGH Members
The vote for the new IKGH President is complete and I pass on the honour to our new leader Lubomir Smiga with Immediate effect.
I am always available to offer help and advice when requested. I truly wish Lubomir the very best in his new role as IKGH President.
There are many accomplishments, developments and progressions that I have been able to oversee. I do not intend to list them and I do not label them as 'mine', they have all been achieved by you, the membership. Nothing changes without the permission of the members, but even so I think that the changes would not have been easily achievable in the past.
The IKGH is very well respected and admired throughout the world for both the integrity of the organisation and the quality of the standards, the guppy IHS. I very much hope that this can continue and develop even more to justify and maintain the reputation of the largest and best guppy organisation in the world.
The IKGH was formed simply to be responsible for the organising of the European Championship competition for guppies. This has been done with the contribution of the show organising clubs to the benefit of the breeders. Everyone deserves thanks for their efforts at all times, not just in the last 4 or 5 years.
I would also like to take this final opportunity to thank everyone for their help and support during my time as IKGH President.
Firstly Pawel and Lubimir who have done a sterling job as IKGH Vice Presidents. Ex President Eddy V has always been willing to lend an ear and is currently organising the IKGH website. Thank you for that Eddy. There has always been a group of able and very well respected breeders who have been willing to discuss and give advice. This has always been appreciated but there are too many to list, you know who you are and you have my heartfelt thanks. This is especially relevant to the few who said 'how can we help' rather than complain or whine.
If there was a cup or trophy or prize for someone who has contributed the most to the IKGH during my Presidential time then there would be no doubt or disagreement from anyone, as to who would receive this. Many shows and events would simply not have taken place without his help. All of his contributions are selfless and done for enjoyment, community and the good of all. The one special person in the world, who I am sure will not be seeking any recognition - but it is well deserved. Ralf Loch. Thank you Ralf.
Finally thank you to those who have recently taken the trouble to thank me for my Presidential work. It is appreciated.
I look forward to seeing you all again sometime in the future at a guppy show.
All future formal IKGH communications should now be directed to President Lubomir
