POS Biennial General Meeting & Show

POS Biennial General Meeting and Orchid Show Sunday 27 March 2011
This year's BGM show was held at Garden Villa, 5 Jalan Raja Dr. Nazrin Shah (formerly Gopeng Road), Ipoh. This venue was offered by Mr. Jek Yap to our society to hold our orchid show and also our Biennial General Meeting and we want to take this opportunity to convey our heartfelt thanks for his kind gesture in helping our society during the last few years. As expected, another record entry of over 200 plants of very high show quality were brought to the show. The show started at 9a.m and by 11a.m we had in our register pants. Judging began at 11.30a.m.

Official bearers were:

Show Manager: Robert Ang
Register of Plants: Angie Yeow, Jessie Ang & Francis Firdaus

Recording: Hew Fook Yoong

Classification: Leong Tuck Lock & Low Kok Keong

Judges: Chief: Leong Tuck Lock

Judges: Low Kok Keong, Lim Cheen Nyon, Liew Chee Seng, Roslan Ismail

The Grand Champion went to Mr. Liew Chee Seng with his entry of Phalaenopsis Yungho Gelb Canary. This plant which was bought from Taiwan has 18 perfectly formed unblemished flowers. If you have any experience with white novelties, you will appreciate the difficulty of maintaining each flower in perfect form before the show. Mr. Liew, a extraordinary grower has won many Grand Champion prizes with his submissions ..... Congratulations !!

The Runner Up Champion went to Mr. Theow Kim Fook with his entry of Ionopsis utriculariodes, a very showy plant with more than 10 spikes in bloom.

Lunch of nasi lemak and fried chicken was served to everyone in the show. The food tasted exceptionally good ... maybe because we were all very hungry. The meeting started at 1p.m and after our President, Dato' Dr. Majumder called the meeting to order, she gave her address. Minutes of the last BGM were read and approved, BGM report for year 2009 / 2011 was also adopted and Statement of Accounts for year 2009 / 2011 was also adopted.

Judges were

Leong Tuck Lock

Low Kok Keong

Lim Chin Nyon

Theow Kim Fook

Michael Wong.

The show was well supported even though there was another show running concurrently in Penang.

As usual our member-artist, Mdm Oh Chow Moy was there putting on paper a beautiful Bulb. annandallei. In fact her presence helped to draw in the crowd and turned the whole show into a carnival mood.

As one of our aims in holding our monthly orchid show is to promote Ipoh to tourist and people outside Perak to visit our city, we have a couple from England on holiday here and they were amazed with the beauty of the orchids displayed. Photo below showed them with POS members, Leong Tuck Lock and Wong Kai Meng.
