14th December - Club Party
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.
Following in depth and exhaustive discussions between parties (Les & Gordale) it has been agreed that trees sales can take place during our club show-as long as people don't take the 'Michael' & set up a trade stall!!
It has been discussed tentatively to possibly have a tree sales/raffle prize table at the club show at Gordale -as per the one we used to run a few years ago.
The idea is to sell/auction/raffle any bonsai, pre bonsai or Yamadori that are looking for new homes.
So any members that have trees that are wishing to find a new garden that they can call home, should bring them along to the show and look forward to some possible remuneration (minus a slice for the club!!!!-obviously)
Any similarity to any existing website or logo is purely coincidental.........honest!!!!!!
Hi All, Here is the latest update on the stolen trees The photos are offering photos and the trees have since been repotted unfortunately I have no other details, but am expecting more pics of the other trees later. When i have them I will publish them. Thank you all of you for your attention and assistance in this matter.
