Meetings - Second Sunday of every month 1.30pm in Alloway Village Hall

This months Programme - April 2019 for Ayrshire Bonsai

Hi All Ayrshire Group members. I am a bit earlier with contact this month because a number of things need to be communicated and emphasised. Hope you have managed to take advantage of the recent spells of sunny weather and get a few things done bonsai wise. Our next scheduled meeting is Sunday 14th April 2019 - 1.30pm at Alloway Village Hall as usual. The theme for the day is 'deciduous' so bring something along for the display tables please. There was initially nothing  planned but you may recall it was suggested that input would be welcome as to the care of and particularly sharpening of bonsai tools. Two very important matters need to be addressed at this meeting as it will be the last discussion and planning opportunity before the Scottish National at Troon on 5th May 2019. Anyone wishing to place trees on the Ayrshire Group Club Stand should bring those chosen trees along to this meeting so that conclusions can be reached as to total number of trees and their size as regards available table display space. The important other aspect is, as you will recall, that the 14th April is the final date by which Jeff Banning needs to know specific details for entires to the Open Section of the exhibition ie type of tree(s), style, size of space required for entry, pot maker etc. If there is deemed to be too many trees for our Club Stand then members can then decide on 14th April if they wish to enter additional trees in the Open Section. This is an important meeting at an important time on our calander so please attend and make the National yet another high spot for Ayrshire as hosts and participants. See you then and there.

This months Programme - April 2019 for Forth Valley Bonsai

Hi all,

Our next meeting will be Tuesday 7th. May and the theme is ACERS.

This of course is after the National Exhibition so if everyone can be there as early as possible "bright eyed and bushy tailed" thet would be great as some of us may be needed to help set up the National Collection stand.

Iain and I will pick up the gear from Broompark sometime before the 5th. May.
