Looking for Convention Legacy Trees

If you visit the Bonsai Garden at Lake Merritt today, you can go on a discovery tour of some major Golden State Bonsai Federation Convention styled trees. We realized recently that we actually have at least 7 of those convention trees. Kathy Shaner and the team at BGLM then posed the question, "I wonder whatever happened to that tree...," and she indicated that we should begin a search.  This is the part from the conversation around the table of curious minds. I said, so why don’t we use the internet to set up a page on our website and ask the question. We could ask the question in Golden Statements, and via our newsletter as well, but the Internet could reach places around the world where these trees may be and widen our research base. 

So here is the question: “Do you know of or have a GSBF Convention headliner styled tree?”  If you do, we want to know about it, see a picture of it and share its legacy with the rest of the world.
