Announcements and Show & Tell
"Opportunity Table" - chance to win Opportunity to get a plant (worth $20)
Show & Tell:
Everyone is encouraged as always to share orchids they have in bloom with the group - though you can try doing it spontaneously with your smartphone/pad camera or computer camera in real time, it works best for us if you take pictures to share ahead of time.
Please send photos by email in advance - preferably the day before the meeting - to Lynne: email@example.com
Additional How & Tell Guidance:
You can help Lynne optimize the show and tell experience by selecting your top 3 plants to share so we have time to get to everyone’s contributions - label your photo files – or include the names for her to do it for you – and particularly for miniatures, try to include one picture of the flower and one of the plant including a coin or ruler or hand in one of them to help us judge the size.
Virtual Plant Opportunity “Table":
At the end of the meeting instead of the traditional raffle where people buy additional tickets, this time we are not selling tickets, but will be giving out Opportunity credits to get a plant (worth ~$20) from The Tiny Jungle - the winners will be given a coupon code redeemable on https://www.thetinyjungle.com/#/
How do you win an opportunity plant?
Names of all attendees that are paid members of SFOS will have their name included once in the raffle ticket pool to be drawn at the end of the meeting.
1) You must be in attendance at the meeting.
2) You must be a paid member of SFOS - so pay your 2020 dues if you have not done so already
NOTE: You can have your name included in the raffle ticket pool more than once, IF:
You RSVP by calendar or email by noon on the day of the meeting
You participate in Show & Tell by sending photos or video clips in advance by email as outlined above
Prepare and give a brief talk (5-15 min) - any orchid related topic of your choice - but these need to be confirmed in advance - so please let me know if you want to do one at an upcoming meeting.
