Bimer Bonsai New Venue for October Meeting
Due to the issues raised at the AGM with our current venue we will trial a new venue for the October meeting and workshop.
This is the Wavell Heights Community Hall located at:
Edinburgh Castle Road, Wavell Heights, 4012 Queensland.
The safer entry is from Cressey Street (off Edinburgh Castle Road) which is not on the crest of the hill. This trial in October will give all our members an opportunity to assess its suitability and provide feedback to your Committee.

Calendar Tree August
The Bougie was dug up from a golf course around 2006 that closed down. I had admired the trees when I had played golf there and jumped at the chance to collect it when I heard the course had closed down and would be bulldozed to turn it into housing.
The first picture is the tree in 2007 from the back showing where a trunk had been cut off and then carved. Picture 2 shows the front. The third photo is from 2011 in its first bonsai pot.
