A quick administrative note: Beginning in 2024 we will start collecting annual dues in January instead of June. Anyone who joined or renewed in the last 3 months of 2023 will have their membership rolled over into 2024. Dues can be paid through our website or in person at a meeting. If you need to mail a check, please ask us for Marian’s address.
This Saturday will be our final meeting of the year and it should be a lot of fun! First, we will get to see all the finished products of our accent pot making workshop. I’m told that all of them survived the glaze firing!
Second, we have a couple boxes of pots and misc. items that were donated to the club that Rob will be auctioning off. These are mainly low end smaller pots so if you’re just starting out or are growing out young material you should be able to get some good deals.
Third, since we didn’t get a chance to talk over wintering last month, we will try to fit that in as well.
There will not be a meeting in December.
If we don’t see you, I hope everyone has a safe and restorative holiday season and look forward to another year of bonsai with you.
Our first meeting of the year is Saturday January 27th at 9:30am. We have a special presentation lined up. Member Martin Reuben will give us a tutorial and demonstration on photographing bonsai at home. Tips and techniques will be shared for getting the best results using natural light and cellphone cameras so this will be accessible and useful for all. Some basic editing will also be shown. Members are invited to bring a tree to be photographed during the demo. The meeting will take place in the classroom at Rockefeller Park Greenhouse.
