January 12th General Meeting
Learn all about how AOS judging really works from the California Sierra Nevada Judging Center (CSNJC). Orchid judging should not be a mysteries process. But to many of us it is and the good folks at CSNJC want to change that perception. This will be a fast paced and fun evening with realtime AOS judging. Please start grooming your plants and plan to bring them in on Tuesday the 12th. Take a chance, you never know, you may even have an awardable plant!
