CFBC May News
We have an exciting couple of weeks ahead of us! This coming demo will be held at my house in Longwood, FL and will be led by our very own Mike Rogers. He will be discussing concepts and techniques to consider when preparing a tree for exhibit. We are pleased to have 3 members with trees that will be on display in this year’s BSF exhibit. Those members include Judy Gore, Mike Rogers and myself. Some of these trees will be on display at the meeting this Friday and will be used as discussion materials for the demo. We will also be voting on the new board at this Friday’s meeting.
This year we are thrilled that Ben and Agresta Gardens will be hosting and sponsoring our end of year celebration! This year it will be on Tuesday May 25th, beginning at 6:00pm at Agresta Gardens. World renowned bonsai artist and guest artist for this year’s BSF convention Jennifer Price will be there to offer feedback and advice on your trees! Agresta Gardens will be providing BBQ. We ask that you bring your favorite beverage and your finest trees for some fellowship, food and bonsai! Thank you to Ben for your offer and generosity. We are sure to have a great evening in your wonderful garden!

This month, the Bonsai Societies of Florida’s annual convention (which we are all members of by being CFBC Members) will be held Memorial Day weekend (Friday-Sunday, May 28-30th) at the Florida Hotel in the Florida Mall (1500 Sand Lake Rd, Orlando, FL 32809 2nd Floor).
This event is THE event for bonsai enthusiasts in Florida. All the best trees in the state will be exhibited, the vendor room will have any and all the bonsai, pre-bonsai, pottery, soil, tools and supplies you can imagine, raffle tables and auctions, and three amazing ladies will be giving demonstrations, workshops, critiques and talks on amazing bonsai specimens.
You can still register for daily or full weekend participation on the convention website, or, as always, it is free if you just want to see the exhibit, visit the vendor room, or try your luck at the raffle.
Hopefully we will see you all there! End of the year celebration at Agresta Gardens !
Our year end party is being hosted by Ben Agresta this year and will feature Jennifer Price, one of this years headliners for the BSF convention, with a help session for our members. Bring a tree you have questions about, a tree to display, and your favorite beverage.
