Excellent exhibit guys, well done! :clap:

Quality of the trees was exceptional, and nice to see the trees well spaced. Even Bjorn was full of praise and I'm reasonably sure he wasn't just paying lip service to his hosts ;)

Sorry Bougy but unfortunately you may have to wait a moment for the full spread of photos, the committee are currently tied up still running workshops twice a day with Bjorn until Friday.

I'm sure those who were lucky enough to attend will understand how busy the committee running the show have been. Don't stress but guys, the photos will be up very soon.

Cheers,
Pearcy.

If you are on Facebook, look under the name of Val Garth. There are over 70 magnificent photos -- of a magnificent show.
Congratulations, Bonsai North-West!

No Facebook either Lisa. I don't do Instagram or Snapchat either and my phone isn't very smart. I refuse to have a Google account too. I like my privacy thank you very much. Will wait until someone takes the time to upload some photos they took with a camera. I will just sit here in my rocking chair with a blanket on my lap :palm:

Thanks for the posting, benny. Much appreciated. A really good summary of Australian struggles and achievements in bonsai, with some very welcome and very deserved compliments.

Hi all
I have finally been able to upload photos of the convention to our club website.
Rather than re-posting photos here, all convention photos can be found here: https://www.bonsainorthwest.com.au/aabc-2018-convention

Thanks again to all those that attending and I am sure they were not disappointed.
