    I've always wanted to attend that show, but by the time you figure in gas, a place to stay, food, etc..... It adds up pretty fast. Don't know if I'd have anything left for a few 'posies'

    Sounds like it is going to be fun!! Be sure to take lots of photos! If you want and have access to card stock or Avery Business Card Paper, I am attaching a pdf file; OrchidTalk Forum Contact Cards. I usually pass them out and leave some on my display table at Orchid shows that I attend. I am not sure if it works, but many people pick one up and it puts the forum URL into their hands in case they have a question about how to grow one of their new plants. I usually have some printed up and ready to use, but cannot make my stupid printer work anymore. Once I get it fixed, I am happy to mail some to anyone who thinks they can use them. Anyway, here is the pdf file.

    Default Illinois Orchid Society Show Attended

    Well, I went to the show Saturday but didn't see anybody I might have recognized. I bought raffel tickets (didn't win any of the very nice plants but I have hope for a door prize). I bought several orchids and had a very great time. One had to wait in line to purchase anything at all the tables. I heard that IOS ran out of new member packets.

    Some really amazing Paph's. The basket above had four AOS awards (3 for points) and I think 8 IOS ribbons.

    woohooo, Paph show

    Thanks for taking us with you Joe. The basket full of Paphs look awesome. Wouldn't mind any of those in my basket.

    Great purchases... funny though, the growth habits all look like Phallies to me... I am such a dummy when it comes to other orchid generas.
