I'm not trying to win an award for being the LAST Burrs attendee to post on this thread ... my PC died on Monday Sad so I've been cut off from the world!

So this will be a brief post until my PC is repaired (hopefully) later this week. I did not want to miss the opportunity to thank all of the people at Burrs this year - my debut appearance. I was made most welcome from the moment I arrived. Many people offered me advice on my trees, bonsai in general ... and life in general! Many more people tried to improve my poor wiring technique ( Rolling Eyes ), I was well fed (thankyou so much to Carolyn and Tony's Mum!), well beer-ed, I've made new contacts/friends, I have already met a couple of particularly great Burrs people after the event and intend to build on that and my head is still spinning with everything I learned.

Thankyou to everyone involved for everything and especially to Tony for the opportunity.

I have no pictures to post at the moment (I refer you to the aforementioned PC death!) but as I seem to be in numerous pics (and videos!) already posted, I'm sure you get the idea.

It was a pleasure to be inolved in and to help out at such a truly fabulous event.

Matt

p.s. For those who asked, I finished mopping the floor before it got dark - you dirty lot! Very Happy

It looked even better "in the flesh".
