We are now days away for the 2013 Joy of Bonsai. We have been planning and getting ready for some time now and have many new additions to the event. Our vendor area is the largest to date and we will have vendors selling everything from great trees, supplies, stands, exhibit items and much more. Make sure you visit our sales area and support them.
Our speakers are ready and very excited about the demos material and workshops so you will have some great learning opportunities and some great auction trees after the demos. Robert Malher is just back from a trip to Japan after visiting some of the best nurseries in Japan and working with the artists in Japan. Mike Feduccia is fresh from another trip to Oregon and his teachings from Ryan Neil and will wow us with fresh ideas and techniques. Mike Rogers is going to surprise us with a great new demo he has planned!
The exhibit this year is all new, we have purchased new back drops from the same company that BSF used for the 2012 BSF Convention so we are very excited about using them for the first time and have all new trees for this years exhibit. We will also have our Friday night demo tree a Redwood we started in August by Mike Feduccia in the exhibit. The tree will be refined and repotted in a high quality pot during the demo, placed in the exhibit after the Friday night demo and shown. This tree will grace the exhibit for all to see before the Saturday afternoon auction, so don’t miss the chance to own this high quality tree. Our registrations are pouring in and we are going to have a great attendance so don’t miss out on meeting new people and learning from some of the best in bonsai! We promise to show you a great time! I hope to see you all soon. Have a happy and safe New Year! Louise
