Esprit Bonsai International – August 2019

(Nancy Kaufman) #1

Next time in the north-east
This dual convention in Albi will be remem-
bered for being very well organised and for the
multiple displays and activities that were on offer
throughout the weekend. While Albi’s Le Seques-
tre exhibition centre did not draw especially high
numbers for this kind of event, it did neverthe-
less hold its own. It sets a precedent to live up
to, and is perhaps an experience to talk about.
The thirty-or-so members of the Bonsaï Club de
l’Albigeois deserve warm thanks! Make a date for
2020: 23–24 May in Vivier-au-Court (Ardennes
department, north-eastern France) for the FFB
convention, and in the Czech Republic for the
EBA one. �
