People's Choice Award at Orchids in the Park 2013
At the Orchids in the Park this year we had a "People's Choice" award for the orchid that received the most votes from our attendees.
To be eligible, the plant had to be entered and a number placed on the plant. Attendees to the show received one ticket each, and were instructed to select the orchid that they liked best.
I am pleased to announce that the winner was new member Karen Olson, for her plant Bulbophyllum Elisabeth Anne 'Buckleberry'. Karen will receive a check for $100.
The runner up award, a handmade ceramic pot from Stonypoint Ceramic Designs (Marni Turkel) goes to Angelic Nguyen, for Lc. Blue Lagoon.
Congratulations to both of you for your beautiful plants. It was a tight race for the runner up award, with lots of other orchids coming quite close in the voting.
Thank you to everyone who participated in this event.
