Hello Bonsai friends,
Season’s Greetings Everyone. I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and wish you a Healthy,
Safe and Prosperous New Year.
Last month our Annual Auction was the final program for 2009 and was a great success. It takes
a lot of people to make it a success like Randy Brooks our auctioneer, volunteer merchandise runners,
sales slip runners, cashiers, and people to greet and sign in our buyers and sellers. And do not forget
about our fellow Bonsai supporters like Mike Cartrett, Rita Rosenberg, Larry (Papa) Duke and others
who came a long way to support our club. I surely hope some of us can go and support their clubs at their
auctions this upcoming New Year. I want to personally thank you all on the behalf of our club for all of
your support. Thank You.
Well are starting the New Year right with two programs. The first is on January 9 th at Palm
Hammocks with our good friend and legendary "Bonsai Master" Ben Oki. Ben has been touring Florida and teaching Bonsai for over thirty years and we all look forward to working with him again. It will be a
workshop for Bonsai members that sign up at a cost of $35.00, which isn’t much when you consider the
tree you end up with worked by a Master. There is only a one of spot left so please contact Bob Hulnick A.S.A.P. Come as an observer and enjoy a Master at work and the fee is only $5. It starts at 7:00
P.M. and you can get directions by e-mail.
The second program of the month is on January 12th and is our first B.Y.O.T. open workshop.
Bring your trees, bring your tools and bring your wire because it's time again to have fun working on our
trees and getting help from others if needed. All of us on The Board are always looking and thinking of
new programs, so if any of you out there have any ideas we sure would like to hear from you. One new
idea is a "Silent Auction" in our newsletter that may be coming up, so stay tuned.
Also this year we are having our tree of the month program again, but this time in two categories:
Beginners or Novice and Advance, so please bring in your trees starting in January. The winners of
the tree of the month will be showcased at this year’s upcoming show and the winners of tree of the year
in each category will be announced and awarded at our Annual show.
Please get your club memberships and/or renewals in to Bob Benaim as soon as you can so he
can get the list to B.S.F as they were due in December.
I look forward to another great year of bonsai fun, See you there.

Balsa (Ikadabuki)
La característica principal de este estilo es la presencia de un tronco tendido
sobre el suelo a partir del cual parten un número generalmente impar de troncos
verticales. Este tronco caído suele ser perfectamente recto e ilustra la fuerza de
los elementos que derribaron el árbol original, árbol que a pesar de todo continuó con vida, enraizando nuevamente y convirtiendo las ramas del lado descubierto en los nuevos troncos.
Una variante muy similar, pero que ha merecido nombre propio como estilo, es el Netsuranari. En este caso el
tronco sobre el suelo presente un aspecto repleto de curvas sinuosas que representa la situación en que una raíz especialmente grande ha desarrollado múltiples chupones conforme se desarrollaba.
Formar un árbol según este estilo puede lograrse de diversas formas, como por ejemplo aprovechando material
algo defectuoso que presente ramas únicamente en uno de sus lados y que por tanto pueda ser plantado tendido sobre el
suelo. También se puede lograr forzando a un tronco subordinado a inclinarse hasta reposar sobre el suelo, lográndose
composiciones con gran fuerza visual a causa de la presencia de un tronco muy dominante.
En cualquier caso, buena parte del trabajo se concentrará en lograr que el nuevo tronco horizontal consiga emitir
raíces a lo largo de toda su longitud que poco a poco vayan sustituyendo, o complementando, la antigua base de raíces
situada en un extremo. De igual forma es de gran importancia evitar en lo posible alinear los nuevos troncos para no tener
composiciones casi completamente planas y en dos dimensiones. Para ello es fundamental jugar con las inclinaciones de
cada uno.
