7 PM

Welcome members and guests!   This month we will be talking about How orchids are judged  and why we should look into the results as they relate to our collections.
  I will be bringing in various orchids for a closer look into how they compare for judging. Be sure to bring in your show table plants to possibly get a ribbon for your efforts as well as get a detailed explanation 
for the reason for comparing it to other plants of the same genera.
  I will also try and explain the " apples to apples ", "oranges to oranges", "apples to oranges" effect in judging.
  Please bring in your blooming plants and lets have a mini show with the show table ... remember we are still planning to have a show in 2016 and we need to keep up our show quality entries.
  See you on the 17th   Dave
