Welcome members and guests! This months meeting " You be the judge " will be an interesting insight into the world of judging. Yes we all see all those ribbons in the exhibits and I know a lot of you are wondering why so many pants get those ribbons or do not get ribbons. This meeting will hopefully give some insight into that process and give you a chance to see where you would place those ribbons. I will try and bring an assortment of orchid blooms and/ or plants that we will all judge together, and hope give you some answers to the judging process. Bring in a sharp pencil and be ready to fill in your own forms! It is always fun to try and figure out the winners! Be sure to bring in your blooming plants for the show table! Dave

Presidents message .....
Welcome members and guests! Well, hopefully spring is here and it will be nice , not to have to move all these plants back and forth! Only thing is now we have to keep the watering up so our plants don't dry out and watch that the sun does not burn up these plants. Along with this dry weather also come the Trips and other insects that destroy the buds shortly after they form. Keep your observation up and catch these problems under control! Write down questions as you think of them so you can ask those questions during the meetings and hopefully get some answers. Everyone has been in the same situation, at one time with their plants so lets share the good with the bad! I have been judging around the state and can see as well as hear the type of questions presented by members. No questions are without merit to all the members! My sincerest Sympathy goes out to Susan Clooney and her family for the loss of her Dad, My thoughts and prayers as well as the membership of the MROS go out to her! Happy growing to all and I will see you on the 20th of March, Dave
