    Smile How many orchid shows will you attend?

    I was curious how many of you plan on going to orchid shows this year and if so how many? Or possibly even which ones you will attend?

    I am going on a trip in March to see a specialist in NC and plan on going to one show on the way in FL and possibly another in NC on the way back. Plus there is a small local show here in town so that should make 3 for me this year if my plans work out.

    I have always wanted to attend Redlands but may not be able too due to the trip I am already taking in March. Any of you plan on going to Redlands?

    There are a couple shows close to home. My OH cringes at the words Orchid Show, Orchid Sale, and Orchid Nursery. He's really glad that I only go to the smaller ones. lol

    Living in northern Indiana has its advantages. There are at least 10 shows a year within an easy day trip. I am going to at least 5 if I have the time.

    Probably only my own OS's show. I'd certainly love to do some others sometime, though!

    Cheers,

    I missed one of the ones I wanted to attend this past weekend. There are 2 upcoming that I definitely plan to attend and one or two others that I may try to see.

    I will hopefully be going to at least 4 shows. There are several in Maryland and Washington DC that are easy day trips plus the AOS show at Longwood Gardens in Delaware that are fantastic shows with great vendors --- VENDORS being the key word to any show! LOL

    I plan to attend the Maryland show and Longwood, both in March. The NCOS show in the fall Columbus day weekend. Who knows what others I may end up going to.

    I have been to a summer show already this year and 18 of us are going to the Tokyo Dome show next month, also between now and the end of the year I should get to 8 shows here at home, It is fun being adicted I never feel guilty.

    I am going to my first orchid show next weekend! I am terribly excited and worried. I should leave my wallet at home! Its the Sonoma County Orchid Society show...I am told that I now live in an orchid hotspot for the US. Now I just have to rebuild the meager collection I left behind when I left Alabama!

    I'll probably only be going to the local Witwatersrand OS show and hopefully the East Rand OS, though I hope I'll have enough time off in September to go to the national show in Pretoria (about 1-1,5 hrs drive away).
