We'll be discussing some of the following topics:

  • The November meeting will be on 11/08 in the Jubilee Cottage at Goodwood at 7:30 pm. Michael Wright will give a program on orchid judging. He recently gave it to the Gainesville Orchid Society with good response. Our show is not too far away, and this will give you a better understanding of what we do for Ribbon and AOS judging.

    We have been lucky with warm weather, but it is not too early to plan for cool or cold at this time. Many are fine to 50 or 55 at night, but vandas, phals, and other more tropical plants like it warmer.

    We hope everybody survived Michael, and are back to normal. Jodi Shumaker, one of the show vendors from Marianna had catastrophic damage, but is rebuilding.

    December will not have a regular meeting, but we will have a party on Sunday, Dec 16 with more details to follow.
