Not saying it,  but what do judges really think when examining a variety of orchids during club competition?

  • Do they think “Nice leaf, shame about the sepal?”  or is there more to it?

Within club competition, there are three judging categories (Novice, Intermediate and Open levels). There are also genera categories within these three levels (such as Cymbidium species/hybrid, Australian native species, and many more) which judges assign merit points to worthy plants.

  • If you have ever wondered why your plant or someone else’s which you think was worthy of a prize and did not receive one; you need to come to this session. and find out what judges look for.
  • Our guest speaker Barry Larkin, is one of the accredited OSCOV judges, who will not only provide some insights into What Judges Look For, but also provide some advice on preparation and presentation to make your orchids “shine“.

When:  Wednesday 1st November, 2017 – 8.00 p.m. start
Where: N.G.Wishart Senior Citizens Hall, 964 Nepean Hwy, Moorabbin. (Melways Ref. Map 77: D6)
