The group had the usual show prep meeting on the 15th after the SDBC general meeting. Only 6 of the group were there but Janice, Brenda, Nancy and Jaya were in Tak Shimazu's shohin Juniper workshop making more shohin.....the workshop created some really good trees to add to the group! Shirley, Cristina, Sylvia, Eric, Bill and I worked on the 3 displays for the group. David Inglish was also in the workshop and is also starting to move into shohin and kifu sized trees.
Thanks to the following members:
Nancy for creating a beautifully detailed inventory of our stands/slabs with detailed descriptions, and each one and its bubble wrap are numbered.
Eric and Brenda for taking the box stands home to bring to the show.
Janice for taking the container of small stands/slabs home to bring to the show.
Eric for creating stand layouts on paper. The variety of tree and its owner and the stand/slab number are entered into the layout for replication at the show. Members will bring an extra tree or two and accents just in case "stuff" happens to the selected trees and accents.
Next meeting is July 22 in Room 104 at the Prado.
