Members Choice – 16th Annual Exhibition of BIB

bonsai general - 26 views



This past weekend marked 16 annual exhibition Bay Island Bonsai. From what I remember the plans we entered the first exhibition, which is hard to believe that many of these events have been fulfilled. Much has changed over the years, but some elements remain the same – we rely on contributions from members BIB, we depend a great help to make everything come together, and we hope our customers who make the effort to visit and join the fun. To all who participated, thank you!

From the beginning, we have included the assessment of bonsai as a key element of the exhibition. We see this as an educational opportunity for members. Instead of leaving the judge to experts, the members evaluate the trees of the screen and decide which trees to recognize. It is something like a final exam after a year of practicing bonsai display at club meetings.

The parameters for judging are simple. BIB exhibitions, trees can not show two years in a row, and trees winners are not eligible to try for the next five years. The members elect their superiors photographs of various trees candidates in each class and the votes are counted.

Behold, they are the trees that received Awards Members annual exhibition of 16 Bay Island Bonsai, starting with a small Chinese elm size, one of my favorite trees in the exhibition.
