This months Programme - March 2023 for Ayrshire - Bonsai

Hi all Ayrshire Group members. I do hope that the very recent spell of very cold / freezing weather has not caught you unawares resulting in any losses or setbacks. Our next scheduled meeting is this Sunday 12th March 2023 at Alloway Village Hall - 1.30pm as usual. Please bring things for the display tables and note that our calendar theme for this month is Club Tree Critique. It should not be daunting but actually of benefit to us all and be constructive and enlightening. If you have a particular tree that you would like to be subject to critique then please bring it along. Hopefully Mother Nature will be kind to us and not create weather difficulties for any of you who travel some distance to attend our meetings. There will be feedback and updates as to National Event Planning situation.

Next months Programme April 2023 -

Hi all ayrshire Group Members. our next scheduled meeting wiill be sunday 9th April 2023 at Alloway Village Hall, 1,30pm as usual. This date corresponds to Easter Sunday so one would hope that weather and conditions are greatly improved. The theme for the day is Flowering so bring along something for the display tables. There will be some admin matters and final details regarding the Kaz workshop and demo destined for 22nd and 23rd April. As previously stated this meeting will also include a mock up of our club stand for national exhibition in May. Please bring along trees you intend being considered for showing. This will allow available space etc on display area to be considered and to a large extent decided before the event. Some preparation will also be required to our stored table coverings and back cloths prior to national event.
