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 2017 Fall Show and Sale was held at the Beaver Lake Nature Center in Baldwinsville, NY on September 30th - October 1st.
We had a decent Show this year. Attendance and sales were down on Saturday, but a good number of plants were pulled for awards consideration and three plants received AOS awards!
Glen Decker of Piping Rock Orchids received an HCC on a Paphiopedilum Dollgoldi, Marlow Orchids received and AM on a Vanda Alliance Perreiraara LeBeau Blue, and Jerry + Sue Finger received a CHM for a rare species called Ceratostylis pleurothallis. Congratulations to all!.
Follow the link to our CNYOS Fall Show and Sale picture site and select the appropriate year (this year's will be 2017 when pictures have been finished being edited and uploaded) to see the displays and many of the plants entered for judging; each year's show will have its own album. Plants receiving AOS awards will also be displayed on this page.
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 around the same general weekend).
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. A big pat on the back also goes to those who volunteered to bring food for both days of the Show; I think I gained weight (sigh).
A Special Thanks to our vendors again this year -
Piping Rock Orchids
Main Street Orchids
Kelley's Korner Orchid Supplies.
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!
