    Default WNCOS Orchid Show; Asheville, NC 3/31-4/1/2012

    The North Carolina Arboretum, just off the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway in Asheville, NC, hosts the Western North Carolina Orchid Society Annual Show from 9-5 on March 31 and April 1, 2012. This year's theme is The Secret Garden of Orchids, and will celebrate the 50th anniversary of WNCOS and the 25th of the NC Arboretum. See http://www.wncos.org for further details, or feel free to post or PM me questions on this forum.

    Admission to the show is free, though Arboretum parking fees of $8/car will apply (free to members of any American Horticultural Society affiliated garden). In addition to spectacular AOS-judged displays, plant sales, and fantastic raffle prizes, the show includes a variety of free lectures each day for all interests and skill levels.

    Come out to see us! We have an extremely friendly, knowledgeable society membership and all are welcome. Asheville is a great place to visit, with the Biltmore Estate, gorgeous hiking, and 10+ microbreweries in and around town. We're about 2 hours from Knoxville, 2.5 hours from Charlotte, and 2.5 hours from Columbia, SC; the Arboretum is easily accessible from Interstates 26 and 40.

    Just wanted to give this a bump. The show starts tonight with the Arboretum member preview and continues tomorrow and Sunday all day. If any forum members are coming please search me out to say hi! I'm the big guy with short hair and the nametag that says 'Nat'. I should be there tonight until about 8, tomorrow from 10-3 and probably 11-3 Sunday. This will be a really good show, the plants being unloaded yesterday were pretty astonishing in their variety.
