Club history:  The Gold Coast Tweed Bonsai Club Inc (GCTBC) is an incorporated club of Queensland. But it was previously inaugurated in 1983 in the CWA hall, Tweed Heads NSW and it had 10 members. The club’s meeting place changed many times over the years and it had 40 members when it finally moved to Qld. With the wonderful foresight and start Rita and her team gave the club, followed by the hard work and dedication of the many committee members over the years, the club has been steered to the successful state it is in today, both financially and as a teaching and social facility.  It has a healthy bank account and boasts about 80 members.
