Our 2010 Bonsai Show


Members and visitors enjoying our annual show.

Our show was held at the Botanical Gardens on May 15th & 16th. The Botanical Gardens provide a beautiful back drop for our Western New York show and a natural compliment to our love of trees.

There was a demo each day conducted by Hank Miller & Dan Zak. In addition, a sales area provided the opportunity to purchase bonsai, starter material, pots, stands, tools, soil and more. We also raffled off a bonsai.

Mary Selling Tickets SHOW OVERVIEW

Dan Zak, Vince Philippone and Dan Trzepacz are ready to start selling raffle tickets for the bonsai at right end of table.

The raffle raises funds for our club to help bring in knowledgeable guest speakers. This year's winner of the bonsai that was raffled at the end of the show was one of our members, Tom Peglowski.


Bob Taylor explains origami techniques to visitors, while he is working on his other hobby (besides bonsai) during the show.
