Exclamation IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR PROJECT FOLKS...REGARDING ANDY'S

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL:

I just spoke to Andy. He does have enough L reginae for those of us in the U.S. but he suggests we get our orders in right away.

I'm hoping that the few folks who haven't voted yet get it done soon.

Andy says that the fires in California are burning about 12 miles from them and they might get evacuated.

I told him we'll have an answer by tomorrow and I will be calling him to check on their safety tomorrow anyway.

khill just posted this message in our poll thread, I've copied it here:

I placed my order this morning along with a few traveling companions:

Encyclia radiata
Oncidium fuscatum

I spoke to Harry at Andy's this morning and things are OK with the fires at the moment. The winds are dying down and that should help greatly he said.

My order will ship tomorrow (as I guess they all will). I told him I was involved with the Orchid Board project and he said, if anything changed, they would call all of us.

************************************************** *****************************

So...
get your orders placed today if you'd like to have them by the end of this week!

We'll keep praying that things to continue to get better for our Californian friends
