This year, the addition of six individual member display tables made our show very special, and brought out the quality design abilities of six of our members: three Advanced, one Intermediate and two Novice growers.
Couple that with the fact that the Cymbidium season was late this year and the number of plants increased from 112 last year to 148 this year with many specimen entries, and this show was definitely the best in GCCG history !
The sale ran smoothly with happy reports from all the members who were selling, again due to so many plants in bloom late in the season, but also credited to the advanced growing level our club members have attained to produce a high quality of plants for sale. The club came out a winner too; bringing in three times the amount it made last year !
The Gold Coast Cymbidium Growers displayed 148 cymbidium and other orchid genera plants at their 2011 Orchid Show and Sale.
It was held this year at the Woodside Road United Methodist Church in Redwood City, CA. This allowed for much more parking than in previous years, and allowed for a unique display of orchids, different than in previous years.
