Monthly Newsletter April 2014

It was our first “Start at 1pm” and it was most positively accepted. Most of us have family commitments on Saturday nights, and we eventually finished just after 4pm.

We welcomed Graham Dickenses, Francois and Josh .We look forward to having you become part of our Society.

Brian gave a talk on “Tenuki” style and it certainly opens possibilities on what to do with some of our difficult material. Thank you, Brian, your bonsai related topics are very educational for us all.

Monthly Newsletter February 2014




We welcomed Leo Combrink who has not been to a meeting for some time. It was great to see him and his material. Brian again gave a most interesting talk and demo on Budleas and the sealing of bark. It was found to be of value to most of us. Thank you, again Brian.

With Al leaving soon he sold some of his trees and bonsai equipment, most of it at bargain prices. Thank you Al, for enriching some of our collections.

Monthly Newsletter January 2014

Our meeting in December 2014 was not as well attended as usual but being the Festive Season lots of us were otherwise occupied. Thank you for everyone who brought eats and “yummies” for the festive time that we had. Thank you also for the raffle items that made for some interesting decisions for those that won.We welcomed Ken Moffat as a new member. He has been involved with bonsai for many years and we are keen to see some of his trees that he has had for many years.The usual fun was had and Brian gave his brief but educational talk on branch styling.
