World Orchid Conference

The 19th WOC, in Miami, begins tomorrow and runs thru Sunday.  If  anyone is 
in the area, this would be a once in a lifetime  event.  Orchid growers from 
all over the world will be there to  participate in the show, as well as 
vendors.  The orchid growers from  Taiwan actually chartered an entire plane to 
bring in their people, and orchids  for this event.  I was told that Taiwan wasn't 
the only country doing  this.  The World Orchid Conference is held in the US 
aprox. every  20 years.
A member of the  Tamiami Orchid Society wrote that  thier Orchid Festival 
runs  this Friday thru Sunday also. Several  larger vendors will be at both 
events and Tamiami will offer more boutique-sized  vendors and an impressive 
line-up of speakers, at one admission price. There is  no reason to miss either 
event - there is a free shuttle bus that will transport  attendees between the two 
venues. The shuttle will avoid airport traffic  congestion!
If you would like more info:  _www.19woc.com_ (http://www.19woc.com)      and 
     _www.miamiorchidfestwww.miam_ (http://www.miamiorchidfestival.com) 

I  had planned on attending the WOC, but had to cancel my plans do to 
starting the  process of BSI Judging school instead.  Sure wish I could go.    So 
anyone that is in the area this weekend......enjoy this opportunity.
