EBA 2011 - Ratingen Germany


This weekend the EBA convention took place in Ratingen (Germany). The exhibition, demos, new talent contest and the whole event was simply great and worth the long driving trip. 


The new talent contest was the most interesting part of the convention for me and despite the fact that Tomaž Kovšca (Slovenia) got a really bad starting material, he  ended the contest as 1st Runner-up. Congratulations for this great result from my side Tomaz. The first place went to Walter Shmutz form Swiss and the third place to Sebastian Rouzot from Monaco.

Nik Rozmans Thuja and Rajko Podgorniks Res Chemaecyparis ware the only two slovenian trees participating at the exhibition. 

Thuja - Nik Rozman

Chemaecyparis - Rajko Podgornik Reš

The demonstrations ware good, some of them more, some of them less, but somehow I have the feeling that the show of the demonstrators became more important than the quality of the demos, the demonstrations of techniques, knowledge and creativity is less important as the show itself. Im not shore this is a good sign for the future. 

The trees ware very good, the trees ware great. No words are needed to feel and enjoy  this great trees.
