1300 Blanton Ave
RBS Picnic and Auction, May 19, 3 PM, BYRD PARK
This event is a great way to find bonsai plants, pots, tools, and other supplies for a great price. RBS will supply the main dish (fried chicken), ice, drinks, paper goods, and utensils. Members should bring a side dish or dessert to share. The picnic and auction will be held at the BYRD PARK Carillon Shelter. Please note, this event will serve as our regular meeting for the month of May. There will be no meeting on May 27.
You must be a current RBS or PBA member to sell or bid on items at the auction (but you can join that day). Auction items should arrive from 2-3 pm, we’ll eat at 3 pm, and the auction will begin about 3:30. A minimum 20% from each sale is donated automatically to the club, but you keep the rest of the sales. Typically, members bring 3-5 items each to sell. If you have more than that, consider grouping them into lots.
The Carillon Shelter is near Barker Field and the Toll Booth. The closest searchable address is for the Carillon, (1300 Blanton Ave, Richmond, VA 23221) which is nearby. Enter teh Carrilon Parking from Park Dr. and go south through the entire Carrilon Parking area to the end. There is a Carillon Shelter sign at the edge of the parking to mark the “road” to the shelter. There is parking near the shelter. There is another shelter closer to Maymont’s Nature Center, so do not get them confused. Watch for “RBS” signs marking the path to the shelter.
