Notes

Bonsai Links - If you are on the Club's e-mail list, you should have received several e-mails from Jeff Heffel with links to bonsai videos and other documents.  Please do take the time to give these a look; there is some really useful information that's only a mouse-click away.  Thanks for sending these out, Jeff!
