When did you get pics Eric? Does Frank have lights in his GHs? You got there late. As a fact, you got there in time for the mosquitoe fest!
Here is the last of the plants I picked up.
From Sam

stonei, beat up from the suite case as well.
haynaldianum, budded

platyphyllum
(the wider leafed plant)

lowii various album


2 adductums from Popow, one developed rot from the preorder

emersonii with bud sheath, Popow also.

2 growth masterianum, Popow and a hookeri (below)

A small leimianum from O. Paradise


Well that's only 31. I must of miscounted, LOL

Yes, Frank has lights and he kept his show room / sales area open through dinner. BTW, emersonii in bud is rare as hen's teeth. Good acquisition.

Those lights didn't need batteries - they were powered by mosquitos!

The lady sitting next to me is Karen Muir, with Orchid Digest. Karen is the primary organizer of the Paphiopedilum Guild held each January, with the upcoming (2017) meeting in Santa Barbara; next year (2018) in Hilo.

I should of taken more pics of the festivities, only two.

One shot of the group gathering for the BBQ. The fellow with his back to the camera is our own Scott Ware. I didn't realize he had lights in his shoes like my kids use to wear :)
Here is Scott again preparing the bidding plates. I think the lady setting with him is Linda. Is that right Scott?

Wow, I did not see this thread until now. I did not know what ASOS is. Hi Rick - sorry I did not get to say hello. I'm not a fan of mosquitoes.

I like to think of it Annual Slipper Symposium or "ASS" but I doubt anyone else associated with the event would agree with me !
Peter, you seemed very busy with interpretation duties and the busy activities of the pre and post talks. My feeding frenzy for "product", meet and greet wasn't the highest on our list!

Sam was the only one I saw with lowii, NBS album. Don't recall any compots. Do you remember who donated it? You did bid on right?

Krull Smith is selling Paph lowii album 'Crystell' x self seedlings and compots. I got a seedling - I'm not a fan of album but maybe I will when i see the real flower in person. My guess is Frank donated that compot.
Sam has Paph lowii seedling - none album for sale at his table. I got a seedling.

Eric, I'm sure you can squeeze a couple out of Peter for the right price!
