All I can say is this was not my goal when I started this. I wanted to get this art form into the digital age. Especially, when this club has so much history and we did not have a way to outreach to the general population and other bonsai club circle. But, I have to say thank you for everybody that support my crazy idea of putting a website together for our 50+ year old club.
Hey Shirley lets double down and win again next year or the following year!
