I will be there, Gin. LOL. Guess I have to be since I am the president of the hosting society. heh.. I will have a booth there too. After judging is over, I will put a sign up on our exhibit for OrchidTalk Orchid Forums. Maybe it will help attract new members!
I hope the members of OrchidTalk from Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Missouri, Tennessee, and Arkansas will make the trek to NWA. When my society hosted the show in 2005 we had people from 13 states at the show. We (Louis and I) were vendors at that show, so I did not get to enjoy all the fun events. This time, the only horses I have in the race are two exhibits (mine for OrchidTalk and the OSO society exhibit), saying a few words at the luncheon on Saturday on behalf of the society, and the overall layout & design of the show. Photo below of the drafting.
The room is 76' wide by 150' long. The vendor areas are noted with letters. There will be 50 exhibits. The large one in the center is the OSO exhibit.
If OrchidTalk people want to get together at the event, lets set something up. I would love to meet any new members and see old friends.
