So----Let's see some photos. I hear you guys praising Pavel's work, something I don't doubt, but you think we are going to be happy to hear you just talk about it??????

Did any body?  I don't mean to get on your case, or anyone else's for that matter, but how can you go to a program featuring one of the best artistic minds in bonsai today and not document the affair for your own edification?

How about Chris? Did he take any pictures? Good grief this is like someone telling us about a Big Foot sighting and not having any pictures----as usual, makes you wonder did it actually happen?

As far as I know the event is going on all weekend and I have no doubt there will have been some "evening entertainment". Give them a chance - Chris has always furnished us with photo records of events.

Patience grasshopper. I would say you are getting on the case.
When i left to drive home they were all going to eat after a long day and then start again this morning at 7 am. People are being in the moment and enjoying the experience and not rushing off to upload photos on to social media. Everyone wants everything instant, in this case before the event has even finished.
Chris is taking loads of photos in between organising the two days.I'm sure when he has had time to rest he will be adding to the thread.

You mentioned that you did not take any pictures, you did not mention that anyone else did either. As you have mentioned we now know we cannot expect any from you because they do not exist. I am just wondering if any one at all documented anything that maybe we can expect something in the future?

Chris took many pics of the trees. A few shots of the workshop, no finished trees, but a taste to the atmosphere. With thanks to Anthony for the images.

Sorry about the delay but we were having fun.
Vance, the best things are worth waiting for.
Smithy, thanks for your kind words, the weekend was made possible because of everyone Paul Spearman and Keith for picking up Pavel from Bristol airport on Friday night to the girls, Jackie, Leana and Stella for the food, to Glen for taking Pavel back to the airport on Sunday, and to everyone who took part and supported the event.

The weekend was fantastic, Pavel and Jacob worked all day on Saturday until 6.15, and then 16 of us went for a meal at the Scot's Pine on the top of the mountain it was a great night.
Pavel asked if we would like an early start the next morning, I said I am sure that would be fine, OK he said we will start at 7am!!!.
Amazingly People were waiting outside the nursery from 6.30am the next morning including Andy from Pembroke over an hour away! I dont think he slept.
Everyone was there by 8.30. Pavel worked non stop making drawings and giving advice and styling the trees, here are some of the finished trees.

Another brilliant weekend organised by Chris and members of Dragon Bonsai. Pavel and Jacob hardly stopped from the minute they arrived to the minute they left - They must have been worn out by the end!

Pavel is my hero, too! I feel so happy for you over there, even though I do not know anyone of you in person. You are very lucky to have among you people organizing such events with such visitors. Pavel is so gentle and modest!

Thank you Chris for an absolutely wonderful weekend. I feel privileged to be part of such a talented club. The talent and experience from Pavel is amazing an he never stopped all weekend. I am sure everyone gained something from the workshop my head is still buzzing from all the techniques that was demonstrated and all the trees that were brought in, also a big thankyou to Julie as she ran around after us all weekend. Oh and could you get some wire in for Sunday I seem to have run out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
