Wirral Bonsai Show @ Gordale 11th/12th August

Doug's best in show 2004

By way of an attempt to publicise our annual show to non members (assuming members need no reminder??) below are links to a previous show (as highlighted on the IBC website) and that of the venue -Gordale Garden center.

2005 show

At this years event, there will be:
  • the formal exhibition of members trees including a debut for a number of Tokonoma displays, all to be judged by -Tony Tickle
  • an informal workshop with members working on their own or visitors trees ,
  • voting slips to determine Joe Public's 'best in show,'
  • a raffle -prizes including the demo trees worked on over the weekend,
  • a chance to chat informally to some of the countries leading bonsai artists (or maybe just the members of the club!!)

NB. I notice both Ian, Andy & Les are subtly promoting our show on the IBC -
so lets drum up as much interest as possible to encourage some heavy footfall!!

New members are always welcome, just come along to one of our monthly meetings at the RAFA club. You can even 'try us out' for a few months before you decide on joining as an official member. The meetings are informal (there's a bar!) and the club members are (mostly) friendly, approachable and happy to pass on guidance and information to anybody interested in bonsai- whatever your level of experience.
