There were eight awards granted at Balboa Park at the March 3, 2012, Pacific South Region, American Orchid Society Judging Session. That's a pretty uncommon occurance. Perhaps it was a small tribute to our friend and fellow judge, Loren Batchman, who for so many years tirelessly chaired the region and could reliably be counted on to share a carton of donuts and some fresh produce from his yard. May he rest in peace.

** Note: not all of the exhibitors had given their plants clonal names at the time the photos were taken.
