Mo' Pics!

P. S. Tonight is the final banquet at the Crypt.

P. P. S. Tomorrow Lynn and I take the train down from Charing Cross to Tunbridge Wells to visit Janet Birch and to see and handle Michael Birch's personal collection of his own work - stay tuned.

O, what a time it was. . . .

Closing banquet was the spectacular feel good moment of this event. We really are the INTERNATIONAL Netsuke Society!

Oli made a wonderful speech, thanking all, then our new Treasurer, former INS Pres Marsha VA & I spoke together, also thanking all the sponsors, and hoping we see all at the INS 2017 Cologne Convention, roughly June 7-11, 2017, with Trudel F coming out of retirement to host, our Lead Moderator Martyn J to assist Trudel, and Marsha, drawing on her 30+ years' experience staging these conventions, to head up planning and finance as Treasurer.

So, mark your calendars and for those who attended, get some rest. The whole multi-day London event seemed to go by so fast it seemed like only hours since we started.

Lynn and I are racing to make the 10:15 train out of Charing Cross to go to Tunbridge Wells to spend a day playing with Michael Birch's family, who are bringing many of his netsuke and other creations.

Hoping this modest blog helped those who could not attend enjoy this magnificent experience. NetsukeWorld is alive and well in London, I am delighted to say! Signing off now. . . .

Thanks to all who took time out to keep us informed (and green with envy back home). Some really great photos in The Crypt.
