Here are some details as to how to organize your plants for show next Tuesday…
Thanks to Gotti for her thoughtful review:
a crash course in filling out the entry card for your specimen(s).
Entry cards will be available at the classification table, staffed by Leslie Tuthill and Pam Marhan, but better yet, pick them up from my house to avoid a pre-show pile-up. Have your cards ready when you are at the Classification tableAfter entries have been accepted, move on to Cathy Hawkins and tell her how many entries you have.The cards should be filled out as follows:Flower Show: Moments in Time 0/16/14Division I (for Horticulture)Division 2 (for Design)Section A ( both Hort and Design)Class # – see Schedule for Hort (5 classes) and Design (3 classes)Entry # – your personal # as listed in yearbookName of horticulture specimen, list botanical name (check on line if you don’t know it) and common name. If you have the cultivar, even better.Further down under exhibitor, write your name and club. We have your addressRepeat the same info as above on the stub section of the card. This will be retained by Jo McKeon-Hutton, Awards so she can tabulate your entries.You can use a waterproof pen (easier to read)If you are entering a design, your entry card is already written by Marina. Look for your place at the design tables.You need to fill in a 3×5 card with the names of your flowers. Index card will be with your entry card.Horticulture: Check your specimen for bugs, dirt, trim ragged leaves, pull off spent blossoms, no leaves below the water line. Wedge material (Saran wrap) will be at the prep table. Make sure specimen are standing upright. Posture will be part of judging.
