Orchid Show - "Orchids Masquerade"
Society was well represented at the Barbados Orchid Show by Robin Naipaul,
Anthony Tang Kai and Gopaul Chackan. The picture on the right shows our
display. We won 4 trophies, a silver certificate from the AOS for our
display and an Award of Merit on a cut flower from Anis Baig. Unfortunately
the trophies are challenge trophies so they will have to stay in Barbados.
We will like to thank all those members who contributed their beautiful
and quality cut flowers for the display!
Further results will be announced at the next meeting.
