This months Programme - December 2017 for Ayr  Bonsai

OK guys, now is the time to start revising for our annual Christmas Quiz which will be held at our next club meeting on the 10th of December.  It will be a fully festive occasion with mince pies specially flown in from Lidl's and if you want to bring along your own chocolate log feel free!

As is traditional, for those who want to participate, we will be holding a Secret Santa event - remember minimal cost items (the target is a fiver) but, be warned, I don't want to see that 1960's bottle of Brut aftershave recirculating !!

The theme tree is "any variety" this month so bring along your most festive specimen so we can deck the hall with boughs of bonsai !

As a precursor, we will be holding our Christmas lunch at the Savoy Park Hotel on Sunday 3rd December at 13.00 - meet in the bar from 12.30 onwards and see who can stagger the fastest into the dining room when the time comes.  See you all there.

Sunday 3rd December:  Xmas Party                                                       From approx. noon onwards.                                                                       Again, we'll have two types of chicken curries on offer, plus the usual accompaniments. For the curry connoisseurs and those with a more discerning palate, Kate has kindly offered to supply a lamb curry to appease their objections! On the day, could we ask all attending to contribute the usual £5.00 towards club funds. The remainder of the cost of the meal will be borne by the club. Also, please bring along an item (value ~£10-15) for the Xmas raffle/draw, and remember to arrange transport if imbibing some xmas punch!!                         For newcomers, it's a "Bring your own booze" (and nibbles) afternoon (to wash down the meal with a drink of your choice, and to fill any gaps later!).                                        For those not present at Robert Porch's excellent talk on pines on Sunday 12th Nov, Ashley has offered to oversee all arrangements for the club trip to Noelanders Exhibition in Belgium on 3rd & 4th Feb, 2018 (travelling on Fri 2nd from Edinburgh). Contact Ashley if interested and did not receive his e-mail.    Hope you all enjoy the afternoon!

Next months Programme January 2018 -

Sunday 7th January:  Happy New Year!                                                     

As there's not much bonsai-ing at this time of year, and all the seasonal festivities are over, we'll have our usual club AGM, followed by discussion of and planning for our 2018 syllabus. Maurice has a provisional draft, inc. dates of venues of interest, but there's still a few gaps to fill, so thinking caps on, please!                                                                    

Also, last chance to return any wristbands from Bonsai Europa to convenor, as they will be redeemed at SBA committee meeting on Jan 10th.
