The San Antonio AOS members meeting and show was an outstanding success. The AOS auction brought in $30,000 and all attendees had a great time.
2012 will see the 2nd International Cattleya Symposium in Ft. Peirce, FL. The speakers list has been confirmed and notices will be sent first to those that attended the '11 symposium, then a public announcement to the general public on remaining seats open. The 2012 symposium is looking to be a complete sell through on registration slots available.
The ICA 'Hybridizer's Forum' bulletin board is up and running. When registering, please use names that are clear and concise. Names that are highly suspect may be filtered out by the spam programs used to keep net spiders and spammers out of the bulletin board.
Work is now beginning on 'CattWiki' ... this section will allow uploading of articles images, etc., for viewing. Hope to have this completed by end of December, '11.
More details to follow ...
