Guest Speaker

George Hatfield from Ventura, California (Hatfield Orchids) will be our guest speaker for October, and will conduct a training session on Judging Cymbidiums. With a BS in Plant and Soil Science from California State Polytechnic University, his professional career has now transferred to hybridizing and growing cymbidiums. His specialty is pendant cymbidiums, and he will be bringing cymbidium plants to sell. A certified and accredited judge for the American Orchid Society and Cymbidium Society of America, he is Judging Chair at both the AOS Pacific South Judging Center and CSA. He has travelled all over the world to discuss, show, and judge orchids.

We will have a covered dish lunch, so please bring a dish to share if you are planning on joining us for lunch.
