    Really? I wasn't privvy to that "news". Has this been verified or could it be just gossip?

    From what I know in past shows sometimes gossip(s) and/or rumors get circulated around .... sometimes just to add intrigue to the show and its participants or just to get the show more interesting and into the limelight.

    But really, how can you lose that huge amount of plants? There are people and watchers around the show area daily. Strange .....

    according to our source, the incident happened between midnight and dawn during the last few days of the mid-year pos show (i think that was saturday).

    Actually , based from several years of being a non-member and a member of the POS . The show exhibit is gradually shrinking even the quality of the participants are slowly shrinking .

    Most of the appeal are not the young people but mostly retirees and oldies.
    Well I think they SHOULD READ these comments as this would be an eye-opener for them as to the direction and to the quality of the shows being presented each year.

    But in fairness to the organizers - the current decline of the shows could also be due to other factors like:

    1. The decline and/or hardship in the current economy (the recession worldwide). People just simply do not have the money to spend on plants or maybe are spending more time trying to earn a living than spending time tending to and raising orchids where the market isn't so great.

    2. Global warming affecting the quality, growth and natural environment of the plants.

    3. Illegal logging and denudation of the natural forest in effect decreasing the number of native orchids.

    Just a few things I thought of contributing to the decline in the qualtiy of orchid shows locally ....

    Jojo, knowing you, I bet you had something to do with it hehehe.... me on the
    other hand have an alibi....

    kidding aside thats a really big loss, I can just imagine that future shows will
    be more less fun since participants will have doubts in joining the even for fear
    that their valuable show plants would be stolen.

    I really think that the POS should work hard to improve on the quality of the
    shows however with that recent event, I doubt that will happen anytime soon.
    I envy you Jojo for you have experienced the glory days of orchid growing.

    Randy your photography can't be to bad. I was very impressed with the range of specimens and the back ground displays were awesome! Color every where and then some!
