Sorry for the delay with these photos but we were very busy with the Kobayashi Advanced Bonsai Techniques & Bonsai Display intense two day seminar following the National Bonsai Exhibition.

Over 225 beautiful bonsai masterpieces were gathered at the Monroe Community Hospital Auditorium for display at the 2010 2nd US National Bonsai Exhibition on June 12-13, 2010. There were 95 exhibitors from 27 states who brought their trees, some from as far as Seattle, WA, San Francisco, CA and San Juan, PR.

Kunio Kobayashi (Japan), Farrand Bloch (Holland) and David Easterbrook (Canada) judged the exhibition and each filled out an evaluation sheet for every bonsai on display. Marco Invernizzi, Kunio Kobayashi and Dr. Alice Chen presented demonstrations. Friends from around the world were made during the weekend.

Additional information will be forthcoming in the next issue of International BONSAI. Complete information on every bonsai with formal studio photos will be in the Commemorative Album which will be published later on this year.

The 3rd US National Bonsai Exhibition will be held on June 9-10, 2012 in Rochester, New York. Now is the time to begin preparing your bonsai for this exciting event.

Bill...

Thanks so much for the photos of the winning trees... it was a great thing to be a part of. Can't wait to get the album. :)

I got a blow by blow of the festivities as they were going on from a friend, and that made be feel a little better about not being there. I am glad it went so well. Any idea of number of attendees?

I wanted to thank you for all your kind support in the process... I hope to be able to present something worthy of being accepted again in the future. :) I highly recommend participation to everyone.

Also... I think you meant 2012 in your post... not 2010. ;)


Kindest regards,

Victrinia

Fantastic video!!! I think that should put any concerns about not being able to see the show COMPLETELY to rest. ;)

I loved it... and even got a peekaboo view of my tree there... what fun!

What a great video! By far, the best bonsai video I've ever seen. What's great about it, is that it is about people as much as it is about bonsai.

Bill, you should expand your media choices, since you obviously excell beyond just the written word.
