The Judges Vote | The Popular Vote
At most SSOS meetings, members have an opportunity to ‘bench’ their flowering orchids for judging. There are three sections in which members can enter the competition which include:
- Novice | Intermediate | Open
SSOS allows its members to vote for their favourite plant on show at each monthly meeting as well.
- On most occasions, what the “people” like is vastly different to what the Judges like, but occasionally everyone agrees!
