People at Noelanders

Post  Rob Kempinski on Wed Jan 25, 2012 3:29 pm

Lots of IBCers were at the Noelanders, and since Russel would rather go to a mall than look at photos of people he doesn't care about here's a new thread to post people shots.

Hans VanMeer by his Hawthorn


Bill Valvanis and his assistant, Corin Tomlinson, working on a demo


Walter Pall moderating the demos while Ryan Neil works in the background


Tom Benda showing off an amazing pot he made in his kiln. Would have loved to taken that pot home but a bit big for the airline overhead bin.


Mike Feduccia, of Florida, served as Ryan Neil's assistant for the demos


Vaclav Novak next to a tree he grew from a seed for the Kifu (medium size) tree award.


Mark Noelanders and Reg Bolton at the banquet


Kath and Malcolm Hughs at the banquet. Kath is a BCI Board Member.


David Benevente at the vendor area.


Simon Temblett by his winning Willow (BCI Excellence Award) . Simon is not a regular here but I have seen several of his trees and he has talent! He also made the pot this tree is in.


Morea and Chris in the vendor area.


Tony and I have a bonding moment in the vendor area


Mauro Stemberger and his BCI Excellence Award Taxus


Gabrielle Moreno from Cancun Mexico. (Gabrielle is one of the leaders in Mexican bonsai tapping into the vast amount of collect-able material in the Yuccatan)


Ryan Neil making another interesting comment while Walter listens.



Me, Tom Benda and Yvonne


Peter Landerloos at Tony's booth in the vendor area

Haha, these are actually pretty good - and lots of familiar faces. Tom Benda's pots are beautiful, love the interesting square one in the middle.

I always enjoy these sorts of threads. Its fun to see folks I've spoken with or PM'd on the forum all having a good time. I look forward to meeting many IBC members at the Expo in rochester in June.

Ps that Willow is baking my noodle, I saved the picture and will hence forth use it as a styling reference for my own. Man that thing is awesome!

Hello You all here!
It was nice to meet some of You on Noelanders.

Sunip, I was at the stand of Nick Pearce.
But we have another chance to meet in September in Holland.

You could not be more right Hans.....
Also a photo of Luc Nagels would be nice....Sorry, I dont have one.

I and my friends ran into carproblems, and Luc was sitting, waiting for my tree... I arrived 00.45...deadline was 22.00
Now, this is what I call a unexpected hartwarming welcome.

Kind regards Yvonne
