    Default Orchid Drawing rules changed

    Begining this month of July, the eligibility rules have been changed to include all registered members who have posted at least 5 messages during the current month. This will open the drawing to everyone, and not just new registrants.

    Good luck!

    Well you're both very welcome! Traci, you're quite literally OrchidTalk's very first "regular" member: that should deserve a prize all by itself!

    Very cool change, Louis, thank you. I would hang out here for the great info and nice folks even without the drawing. But, that's like the icing on the cake. Or the keiki on the momma plant.

    Euhm...i don't wanna be a party-pooper but maybe you should change *all registered members * into *all US registerd members* because of the CITES regulations.

    Or maybe i should just stop talking

    Question Is the draw open to people in Canada?

    Hi I was just wondering the draw that you have each month is it open ti people that live in a different country like lets say Canada? I'm asking because I think I remember When I first joined the contest was only open too people in the USA.Wich is of course completely understandable its so hard to get anything shiped from the states to a diff country!!!(never mind a live plant)Is it still this way or has the rules changed to (ALL Forum Members)including...well..i guess..foren members lol!!!!Oh by the way i absoloutaly love this forum it is the best one out htere in my opinion.LOL i didn't even realize till a couple days ago that you guys were a plant nursery!!!LOL .THanx

    Hi Lucan. I am glad you like the forums here. Unfortunately for the folks who live outside the U.S., the drawing is only open to forum members within our shipping area due to CITES regulations. At this time we do not ship out of the connected United States.

    Cheers!
