The agenda is as follows:

The upcoming Halloween celebration will provide some focus:

The subject of Ghosts, Goblins, and Other Mythical Creatures should give us broad guidelines for sharing of pieces from each of our collections ….

I am also pleased to inform you that Robert Fleishel, Yukari Yoshida, and Kanako Suzuki from Sagemonoya in Tokyo will be joining us.

If any of you plan to be in the San Francisco Bay Area and would like to attend, please PM me and I'll provide additional details ..

Sounds like a great subject to discuss.

In David's absence, I don't suppose you have the tech know how to stream this talk for us guys elsewhere in the world?

Martyn, I don't think it will be possible this time around... but let me see if we can do something for future meetings... although not a great substitute, I'd be happy to forward a copy of the presentation to you ....

Thanks to SF Chapter Chair Steve for organizing another great meeting, Chip for his assistance and provision of great netsuke, Marsha for hosting in her home and Mandy Anderson whose presentation drew on Halloween type festivals and themes around the world and focused on 10 different Japanese female ghost stories. Her show included many prints and netsuke. Pieces representing our topic of Ghosts, Goblins and other Mythical Creatures from member collections were briefly reviewed by their owners on the projection screen prior to our handling session.
Yukari, Robert and Kanako Suzuki were also in attendance and promised to come back to do a presentation on very tall figures. Anne and I made the 350 mile drive up between my two eye surgeries and LA Chair Sue Romaine flew in. INS members Steve and Jennifer were visiting from Minneapolis and even brought some examples from their collection. The evening was capped off by a boisterous dinner a few blocks down the street. Anyone who plans to join this group at a future meeting should plan on 7 to 8 hours of netsuke fun! Here a a few pics of members engrossed in study.

Alan, thanks for the kind words ..... And I couldn't have recapped the meeting any better (although I'm in the process of trying - the Journal recap is due in a few days) ...

And our next meeting plan is starting to come together ... February or March ..... Stay tuned for more details ....

Thanks again to all the participants, particularly those who drove/flew long distances ....

Steve
