The club held a members challenge competition to further enhance flower show skills. Working in teams to create a design that must include the use of a gourd as the principal design feature. Amazing entries were evaluated by Accredited District One Flower Show Judges. This is an excellent opportunity for new members to develop confidence that will encourage future participation in more formal shows. Each entry was judged on principals of design, creativity, plant material use and overall presentation. Members and their guests were invited to return in the afternoon for a cocktail party to celebrate the winning entries.
