    Default Barbados Orchid Soc. 2014 Mini Show 2014

    Hello everyone
    I have been MIA for quite a while. I have not given up on you or my orchids, I have just been too involved in various other things and just did not find the time to get on the computer.
    The BOS stages a Big Show every other year, and in the year in between they have a Mini show just to keep us all tuned in and ready for the big one. The Mini is judged by an invited judge from an overseas OS and 2 local judges. Ribbons and Cups are awarded.
    The show was held on the 25th March.
    I mounted a Table Display and won the top award. Did not do too well with awards for my individual entries. (quite frankly I really did not have too much that was outstanding IMO) I however managed to get a Special Award for the best Miltonia , and then 2 First prizes and 2 third prizes. I'm happy.
    @ Bruce. As promised here are some Pics. They re not the best because the lighting was a problem at all times. But here goes :

    Congratulations! You seem to have a knack for staging and presentation! The Cattleya in the second group of photos looks incredible! Do you have any idea what hybrid it is?

    I think it's BLC Sunset Glory. It was one of best blooming catt for me for years. Seeing the picture reminds me that I need to find a replacement.

    Beautiful displays!! I'm glad your back in the mix on the forum, it will be great to converse with you about orchids. As a relative newcomer to growing these wonderful plants, I'm absorbing as much information about them as I can! Thanks for posting your pics and congrats on your award!!!
