Each Fall the Central New York Orchid Society holds its Annual Show and Sale in the Greater Syracuse, NY area. Many groups and individuals enter displays of plants, educational exhibits, artwork and/or photographs with orchids being their main or dominant theme.
Our 2011 Fall Show and Sale was held at the Beaver Lake Nature Center in Baldwinsville, NY on October 1st and 2nd.
This year the Show went fairly well! Attendance and sales were fair, and four plants received AOS awards including one owned by Club Members Sue and Jerry Finger! More than a dozen plants were pulled for consideration for awards with the final four making the cut.
The complete listing of AOS and show awards/exhibitor list can be downloaded from the 2011 Show Pictures page.
Follow the link to our CNYOS Fall Show and Sale picture site and select the appropriate year (this year's will be 2011) to see the displays and many of the plants entered for judging; each year's show will have its own album. All the pictures (98 images and one pdf awards file) have now been uploaded and described, including pictures of the four awarded plants. Links to pictures from 2005 can be found below and are of the previous format at the bottom of this page.
Next year's show dates and other info will be posted when they are determined by the Show Committee (though it is highly likely that the Show will again be held at the Beaver Lake Nature Center on the same first weekend of October).
Thanks to all who assisted in the planning and setup of this year's show. Special thanks is extended to the kind people at the Beaver Lake Nature Center, the club volunteers who helped with the show, the AOS judges and those who purchased plants and supplies from our vendors.
We hope to see you next year!
The Beaver Lake Nature Center is a fascinating place, and the staff/members were very helpful in assisting us with our show. Four AOS awards were given out. Attendance was down a bit on Saturday due to driving rain, but a good deal of people stopped by on Sunday to view the orchids and to buy plants and supplies from the vendors. Many thanks to all of the judges who came to our show, and to all of the volunteers who helped to make our show a success!
There were quite a few people who visited our show, a few also did express interest in our club, and we enthusiastically invite them and anyone else with an interest in orchids to come visit us during our next meeting!
Thanks goes to everyone who stopped by and visited our show, and bought plants and supplies from our orchid vendors. We hope to see you next year!
