Bonsai Society of Brevard Picnic and Auction 9/7/2013

Bonsai Picnic/Auction In The Park

The Bonsai Society of Brevard will be hosting a multi-club picnic luncheon/auction with Central Florida Bonsai Club, Kawa Bonsai Society, and Treasure Coast Bonsai Society on September 7 at the F. Burton Smith Regional County Park. The park is located about 4 miles west of I-95 at 7575 Hwy.520. The event will be held in the large Karberg Pavilion. I have attached the park webpage for you to check out. It is a beautiful park with lakes, playground, volleyball court and a wildlife nature trail and fishing allowed. There is plenty of close parking and very large clean restroom facility. The pavilion is very large in case of rain. This will be a great time to enjoy an end of summer picnic with all of our close bonsai friends who have the same passion for the Art of Bonsai and a chance to pick a great deal on bonsai trees and items.
BSOB will be providing hamburgers and hot dogs for the picnic. They will also be providing dinnerware, cups, ice and drinks. Central Florida Bonsai Club will be providing a ham. Please bring your favorite covered dish or desert to share.
A bonsai auction consisting of any bonsai related item you may choose to bring will be held following lunch. The auction will include a live auction as well as a silent auction. The method of payment will be by check or cash only. We ask that members be limited to 10 items each in the bidding auction for the sake of time, but no limit of items will be placed on the silent auction. A 10% donation will be asked for all items auctioned to help cover the cost of the event.
A youth bonsai competition will be held during the auction and the prize will be a nice bonsai pot. The participant shall bring their own tools and pre-bonsai tree to style for the competition. BSOB will provide wire for the competition. The judging will not necessarily be the nicest tree when finished, but the best styling of the tree.
Schedule of events:
• 10:00-11:00 - arrival
• 10:00 – 12:00 - set-up volunteers are welcome, fun in the park, playground for children,
nature- trail hikes, fishing
• 10:00-12:00 - please bring items to be auctioned so the auction can begin immediately after
lunch, the earlier the better, this will give people a chance to check out items.
• 12:00-1:30 - lunch
• 1:35-? - silent auction, live auction
• 1:45-3:00 - youth competition
