Barry's note:

  We are invited to be part of an all day event at Bowman's in Westminster Saturday July 20 from 10 to 4. There will be a lot of people coming by and we will be helping them with trees, doing demos, and displaying trees. These events are lots of fun and a great way to sharpen your skills and introduce people to Bonsai. Please let me know if you can help. You can if you wish bring trees to talk about or just tools to work on their trees. You can stay as long as you wish as there is no time limit for us, but don't think you have to stay the whole time. For me I feel these workshops really help you grow in the art and inspire you. We all get a bit flat and discouraged at times and this will elevate you to great heights....or at least motivate you somewhat. Thanks!! Please contact me if you can  participate.
