Just a quick reminder that the next meeting is only a few days away.
It is still a bit too early in the year to think about spring activities, so Frank will be giving a short presentation on Suiseki (appreciation of natural stone), and if time allows, Mike will be doing a short demo on grafting pine and juniper.
Hope to see you there
With not much actual bonsai work to be done in January, we used the meeting to review our Club shows.
There was a good turnout of members and everyone brought ideas and suggestions to the table.
It was felt that our old display stands were somewhat dated and tired looking and difficult to transport, store and erect. We decided to up-cycle some of the stands and came up with a few suggestions on a different set up. We will trial these at a later stage.
We also decided to add a show at a local garden centre to widen the exposure for the club.
All still very much work in progress, but a good start was made and i would like to thank all members for their contributions and ideas during the meeting.
