Here at Southern Suburbs Orchid Society (SSOS) we believe that we are the first orchid club or society in Victoria, Australia and possibly the world, to introduce a member’s only virtual voting competition for members flowering plants.
- We endevour to continue this initiative each month under current local Victorian State ‘lockdown’ restrictions in order to keep member enjoyment, enthusiasm and engagement relevant during these difficult and challenging times.
Due to continuing restrictions on club meetings through Covid-19 distancing advice, SSOS has embarked on a special Virtual Voting competition for all financial members.
Each member can submit currently-flowering plants for the specified time period which becomes eligible for entry into a monthly virtual voting competition; where members can vote for the flowering orchid they like. This is similar to the in-house Popular Vote contest, but does not include the formal official Judges Vote.
