July 2019 Bonsai Newsletter
Summer is in full swing, and the Conejo Valley Bonsai Society’s program schedule is, too.
First, in July our speaker will be Jason Chan. In a program aimed at beginners and experienced bonsai hobbyists alike, Jason will demonstrate wiring techniques. So, whether you’re just learning the basics, developing advanced techniques, or just need a re-fresher course, this program is for everyone.
In August, which is a workshop meeting, we will hold our annual members’ swap meet. So, check out your bonsai bench-es and see what you would like to swap with a fellow member. Pots, tools, and other bonsai related items are fair game, too.
And in September, we’ll be preparing for our annual fall exhibition, so the meeting will be dedicated to peer critiques of show trees. Start reviewing your collections now and preparing trees you’d like to exhibit so you have at least one tree ready for your fellow members to help fine tune.
Hopefully, you visited the Descanso Bonsai Society’s Annual Show June 15 – 16, 2019. Several of our members who are also Descanso members exhibited trees and won awards.
In the advanced category, Rick Naber showed one of his boxwood forests. It won a second-place ribbon.
