The doors open at 7 pm. There is a culture class for beginner and new growers that begins at 7 pm. The general program begins at 7:30.

If you have a nice blooming or awarded orchid, you can bring the plant to the party to be auctioned. The rules are simple:
  • The plant should be in spike or bloom or it should be an AOS awarded plant
  • The plant should be insect and disease free
  • The plant should have a name tag or some description of flower if possible
  • The plant should be clean and in show presentation form (this will also help bring great bid)
  • The seller will receive 2/3 of the proceeds and the club 1/3 of bid
  • Please email a list of plants to John Van Brocklin to make sure you get credit and payment
Here is an interactive registration form you can fill in and print from your computer. It will go a long way in making sure you get paid correctly for your share of the auction price as well as speed up the registration process if you email John before the party or bring the completed form with you, When completing the form do not assign numbers, this will be done when the registration form is processed. Ideally you would email this form before the party, otherwise the registration process begins at 4:00 pm the day of the party (come early and bring your completed form).

Please call John Van Brocklin at 772-7404 or email him at with questions or to advise on the plants you intend to bring a couple of days before the event.
