September meeting- Post show talk

Hi Everyone

Back to reality and getting after our Annual Members Show on the 1st and 2nd of September

Chairman Ian.W opened the meeting with High Praise for everyone after our 4 day of working hard to produce a Great event  Before ,During and After the Show at Gordales Garden Center

 The evening get-together was about welcoming everyone to the society and concentrating  on how to start to Make  A Bonsai Tree for Newbie's and Intermediate members' chatting about the Concept, use of Raw Material, Creating, when to Prune, What to  Look, Think ahead, and  with Andy they both turns  up front  and drew Sketches on the Board  interacting with the members  who I sure learnt something new. I know I did..Looks like  I need a larger Back Garden to plant some of My Trees back into the ground as suggested  by Dave Y.

Also some future events were discussed and see who would be available  and if all goes well will be attending the Japan Day being held on the 13th, Oct at Birkenhead Central Library., the event are held 10.00-12.30 and 14.00-16.00. and some members will be attending the V-o-C-B-S for a Ceramic workshop in October more information about that and more can be found at

The evening was attended with an audience of 19 in the room  and 12 trees with Mark K. of Green Dragon Bonsai on hand to supply members with would they need  for Looking after and working with their Bonsai Trees

That's it for now and our members will at the LAST SUNDAY OF THE MONTH WORKSHOP at the GGC on the  30th of September hope to see you there and bring your Bonsai trees along for FREE help and guidance

 Take care  look after each other and all your Bonsai Trees

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.
