Sunday, December 14th
Room 101, Casa del Prado, Balboa Park
For our December meeting, we will be having Team AG (Allan & Gary), Team Abe (Abe and surprise member), Team J (Julia Chimento & Jason Tucker), and Team Colak styling "Big Dave" junipers on our stage. The teams have taken the junipers home to plan their strategy for the big day.
The junipers will be styled immediately after the club business meeting in a fast and furious trimming, wiring, and jinning session with non-stop commentary from a learned SDBC member . The resulting trees will be judged by all of the club members with an award presented to the winning team.
These trees will be auctioned off at our January club meeting.
If you were in Michael Sykes Foemina Juniper class in February 2014, bring your tree to the December meeting for assessment and the next steps in styling.
Fred Miyahara will conduct the class in January but would like to see if your tree or trees are suitable for the type of graft you are interested in.
Decorate a bonsai for the holidays and bring it in to show to your fellow club members on our display table.
Bring in any trees you have concerns about as we have knowledgeable members available in the Bonsai Help area to the right of the stage in room 101.
If you would like to display part of your bonsai collection during our meetings in room 101, including those who want their bonsai to be critiqued by our in-house experts before being displayed at our spring or fall show, please see Dan Sola or Abe Far.
Reminder: Bring items for the benefit drawing and food to share with the other members.
