Convention Golden State Bonsai Federation this year consisted of two exhibitions – a general exposure and exposure judged the entries are subject to prosecute and eligible for cash prizes. From the website of the Convention:

Any member of a club bonsai found in a number of members standing with the State Federation Gold Bonsai can enter a bonsai in this competition (this It includes contiguous state affiliated clubs). Entries are limited to one per person at any of the four categories. Cash prizes will be made in the amount of $ 200 in each of the categories (conifer, evergreen broadleaf, shohin) and $ 200 for the prize of the People and $ 500 for the best exposure for chosen from among the winners of the other categories. Winners will be determined by a panel of judges who will be headlining the program of the Convention [Peter tea, David DeGroot and Kathy Shaner] and the Audience Award will be determined by popular vote of those attending the Convention. The decision of the judges and the popular vote is final.

I am very happy to see GSBF sponsor a trial event and hopefully with time increasingly enthusiastic participate. Here are some highlights of the court exhibition, the first of them, a tree that won Best Conifer, Audience Award and Best in Show – wow! Congratulations to Rick Trumm – also took home the John Y. Naka ABS, amateur division prize -. For his work in this beautiful Sierra juniper
