The Wide Bay Branch again had its meeting at Hibiscus Hideaway Nursery with Taylor and Rosalie Davis as hosts.  Rosalie was out madly watering as time allowed while Branch President Taylor managed the competition and meeting supported by Ray and Becky Morsch.

Ah, I love my candid camera!

Yours truly, Wally Morgan, and Taylor pose after the meeting. Phil and Mavis Barry surround Brenda and Col Dennis, new members who are already enthused. Somehow, just a foot of Dennis Doherty made the left-hand edge of the pic!
Kay Millers and Phyllis Hoff enjoy one of Taylor's jokes - oops, I didn't say that.  Sorry Taylor! Joy Hatton recovers from handling the entries and certificate writing for the blooms entered and awarded.

Norm Hatton and Brian Fischle concentrate on proceedings. Brenda Dennis, our newest member, shows Phil and Mavis Barry's Dragon's Breath she awarded as Most Spectacular for the day.
The Four Champions - no awards in the other sections
Wally Morgan's Champion Miniature, Sylvia Goodman Phil and Mavis Barry's Champion Seedling, Pink Dragon
