The speaker at the NVOS meeting was Fred Clarke of Sunset Valley Orchids. He talked about the basics of his mini-catt hybridizing program and he his enthusiasm was catching. This is one of those talks that I would like to hear again.
He brought a great opportunity table, all mini-catts, unbloomed but close to it. I bought $20 in tickets and almost got skunked. No matter what's on the table I buy some tickets, but that night I really wanted to win some.
Fred Clarke travels pretty widely so you may get a chance to hear him. You will be glad you did.
