Fern Quiz Prize Awarded to Clan Member

The Carter Center has kindly agreed to subsidize the family Botanical Quiz Prize and has generously donated a lovely centerpiece to Calvin F. Gatch Jr for his correct guess Onoclea sensibilis. The Trustees felt that quibbling (see Comments) about the failure to identify the location was counterproductive. Here is a photo of the prize.

Many thanks to the Carter Center, and to the many less fortunate that submitted guesses about the Spring Botanical Quiz, “Better luck next time!”

  1. I in no way wish to denigrate the Carter Center’s stunning “Lalique-like tableware” prize. It’s not peanuts. But I suggest we check with the Donald to determine if he can top the Carter Center’s offering. The Trustees believe our Botanical contest has the potential to become much bigger than the LC envisions.

    Then the Trustees could put the equisite “Lalique-like tableware” piece on ebay, using the proceeds to buy some toothpicks for this year’s Thanksgiving Day party.
