NIBS AGM This Friday Night

Just a heads up for our members that this Friday’s meeting will all be our AGM.

After the election of our committee and office bearers we are going to have a small auction of 15 trees and a selection of Books and videos. These have been donated to the Society by John Cooke, a club member. Unlike our last auction back in April, this one is only open to those who attend the meeting. Expect a few bargains to be had.

After this we will get back to working on trees and perhaps advising the new owners of the auction trees and where to go next.

Bonsai 30 -Thank You

A massive thank you to all those who made this exhibition possible. There are too many to name and I’d be in fear of leaving someone out. So many tasks to cover over the the 5 days that it took to stage this event and our membership did us proud beginning to end. Building, stapling, clothing, stewarding, transporting, photographing, carrying, fetching, talking, wiring, styling, selling, moving, deconstructing etc. you are all gold star winners. As Chairperson I have already thanked individually everyone who helped, so you know who you are.

A big thank you to the public too. I know we had over 10,000 through on the Saturday alone and not one tree was damaged over the two days. Thank you for your respect.

A special thank you to all our visitors from overseas. Your efforts to join us are much appreciated.

We have lots of photos of the exhibits to follow during the week after our photographer gets time to process the shots. In the meantime I will share some of the roving snaps that Caroline, one of our members, took during the exhibition that help you get a feel for what the event was like.

Please share your photos of the event with us via our Facebook page or even the Bonsai 30 Event page on Facebook. If tweeting is your style then use #bonsai30

All Set for Bonsai 30

The trees are in and we are ready for the public. Hope to see some of you tomorrow and Sunday. For those who can’t make it, there will be plenty of photos next week of the trees.

A few photos tonight under floodlight. Looks a bit moody.
