Meet with Ryan and Mirai Members in Belgium 8-10 Feb

Hello to all that will be able to make it to the Trophy XXX in Belgium 8-10 Feb.!

My suggestion to meet on Saturday at the Trophy in Genk ( pls see Toolbox thread “Noalanders Trophy XX 20219”) hasn’t generated much reaction, so I thought I would start a new thread/topic to ensure no one misses out on the chance to meet each other and to let you know:

A Meeting with Ryan is scheduled for 5 PM on Saturday after the Demonstration.

In response to an email, Ryan said that he would love to meet with us - “the Mirai Community” (yes, that’s us) and that it would be great to schedule a meet and greet with him AFTER his demonstration on Saturday. The demonstration is scheduled for 1-5 PM. There should be room in the seating part of the demonstration area. If not, we can decide ad hoc where to go. So, put a reminder in your calenders.

My Question now is, should we still meet at 11 AM in the main entrance area in front of the entrance to the Bonsai Exhibition Hall to make first acquainances with each other before we meet with
Ryan later on at 5 PM?

Let me know what you think. Your feedback is appreciated… This is all so exciting. :smiley:



Hello everybody and especially Karin.

I am in Belgium all 3 days, so the time and day does not matter for me (us, because my son in law also wants to enjoy 3 days bonsai masterclass). I am on the entrance to the Bonsai Exhibition Hall at 11.00 AM and after Ryans demonstration at 5 PM in the seating part of the demonstration area.
See you all in Belgium

Good idea. I will try to be there too !

I am not shure if I will make it to the 11 am meeting with you as there is too much to see at the Trophy :sweat_smile:

Really, this is all so exciting!
