Last night I went to my first ever bonsai club meeting with the Indianapolis Bonsai Club. It was a blast to be around people with the same kind of enthusiasm I have for the hobby. Everyone there seemed really cool and knowledgeable. The first half of the meeting was mainly dealing with club issues such as reporting new memberships, treasury totals, and detailing the club trip to Brussel’s Bonsai last week. I was flabbergasted when one of the club members said how much money was spent at Brussels in total. The second half of the meeting was devoted to a lecture about shohin followed by a presentation on shohinpresentation. I noticed that they were using Stone Lantern’s shohin book as a reference, so I felt like I was definitely on the same page since I had been reading it recently. I can’t wait until next month’s meeting. Hopefully it will be a little warmer.
