POSTPONING this Thursday’s meeting for one week

Club Members:

Due to heavy snow for us mountain folk (I have 10″ of packed snow/ice in my yard) and that I am still recovering from pneumonia…we are POSTPONING this Thursdays meeting for one week.

We are rescheduling for NEXT THURSDAY, 28th February at 7 PM. We will be meeting in the Baptist Church’s “Fireside room” where we have met on an occasion before.

I hope this works for you folk. Sorry to have to reschedule, but I caught the flu (despite having a flu shot) and it morphed into pneumonia. Been down for the past 2 weeks and still only 50%. As we had a lot planned for our February meeting…I needed to be there, hence the postponement for one week.

Hope you all see this before tomorrow night. Would you please respond to this email with a quick note you received it. I will have to call everyone who does not respond via email. Would not want anyone showing up uninformed,  tomorrow.

See you on the 28th.




Soil Saturday

Soil Saturday was a resounding success!

60 gallons of soil was made in 3 hours! Everyone took home 2 buckets of small and one of medium mix.  For our club, this combo seemed to be optimal. Plenty for spring repotting season!

There was plenty of discussion on what additional materials might be added to each person’s mix.  Fun to hear what everyone ends up doing.

Sure makes you appreciate every grain of lava and pumice when you mix your own soil but making it together made it a fun event instead of a chore.

No Aug. meeting

With soring temperatures, smoke so thick you can cut it, and members on evacuation notice we have canceled the August meeting.

See you on the third Thursday in Sept.

June Meeting – All about Pines

Join us the third Thursday of June to discuss single and multi-flush pines. We’ll be discussing teachings from Michael Hagedorn, Jonas Dupuich, Ryan Neil, and Bjorn Bjorholm and hopefully, clarify some of the confusion associated with the study of pines.

Members are encouraged to bring their pines to discuss pruning and design.
