Lessons Learned

December – It is all about “the game” so don’t plan any presentation. Karen Zierdt may do a slide show of the Trial Garden results.

May – It is all about selling tubers and plants so don’t make any elaborate plans. This is a better month to cover planting, instead of earlier.

For the Garden Tour, encourage car pooling with an official carpool lot as the meeting place. Plan a presentation at the picnic to demonstrate how to place your bloom entry; including filling out the tag. Also, training for clerks and judges on filling out the clerk sheets.

Banquet – Walk through the venue to figure out where the presenter will stand and what light is available. People complain if it is too dark. Especially those trying to read the awards.
