I took lots of pictures yesterday. Will upload a few when sorted through them.

I'm sure anyone there (or not there) would love to see more pictures - did you take any?

Please let us see them! :grin:
:useless: :useless:

Very impressed with all the plants on show. (tu) (tu) (tu) (tu)

I suspect the third photo was taken during the judging. It shows the row of scribes neatly writing out prize cards while the judges, stewards and photographers ponder the entries beyond.

Best wishes,

I couldn't make it this time due to work. I'd appreciate any photos of the caudiciforms, Ariocarpus, Lophophoras and Turbinicarpus.

Cheers

Lets hope that official BCSS website will be flooded by pics soon. I've checked it today but found announcement only. And still, there was one pic that kinda got my attention, there is a plant on it, looks like christmas tree so I'd appreciate if others could take a look at it and share their opinions of what it really is (or could be). Its really easy to spot that one...
