May 2014 Monday Triple Demonstration

The triple demonstration in May was given an innovative and competitive flavour with three teams of Society members asked to style three similar junipers.  To kick off the event, team members were selected and immediately started work on considering how they could style their trees.  The MC for the night kept asking difficult questions about the intended course of action and progress being made.  Members were able to observe both the styling activity and the quality of teamwork as the demonstrators responded to the challenge.  The activity level developed to a frantic pace as the deadline approached to bring the evening to a close.  The three trees were available for sale and were quickly snapped up by team members.
