Bonsai Events 2012 6 years 6 months ago #2683

Hello everyone,

I'm working on an article: 'Bonsai Events 2012'. In this article I want to make a calendar where you can see when, where, and what bonsai events there are in every month.

Under here is a list (in alphabetic order). If you miss an event, you can reply to this topic, and I'll update the list and add it in the article. All events that are in red are unsure if/when they are going to be there in 2012.

A big list already!

Hope everyone can try to help Youri to make this list as complete as possible. Your joint efforts to make this list will be used to write an article with all these events on the website.


Thanks Youri for your efforts and intention to keep this up-to-date.

Hi Youri,

Not sure if this is the same one you have listed already (third one down on the list)...ABS/BCI Stone Convention, Denver, Colorado, June 21-24, 2012.

Is it possible to include where all of these events are taking place such as city, province/state and country? This would make it so much easier for the reader to choose which ones to investigate according to their own location. Thank you, Youri for putting this list together. :)

Don't have negative thoughts about things you cannot control. Instead, invest your energy in the positive, present moment.

Re: Bonsai Events 2012 6 years 6 months ago #2686

Yes Leslie, this is the same ;)

Yes, this is just not the article yet. This is just a list, where you can only see the names of the events, so that people can reply here if somethings missing.

In the article the events will be ordered on Dates and there will be included what, when and where it will be held and some more information about what you can do etc. :)

Yes, this is just short a list on alphabetic order so that people can easily see if there is an event missing.

In the article I will place:

1. What, when and where it happens
2. Some information about the event
3. A link to a website or email for more information

Thanks! :)
