Show Schedule

The following information is a giude on how to produce a simple Flower & Vegetable Show Schedule.

Basically a schedule should be designed to cater for the needs of the organisers and the exhibitors,and detail the rules and regulations for the show.

For example it should;

Let the exhibitor know what rules will be applied, and what each class should contain.

Let the Judges know what rules to apply, and what each class should contain.

It is up to the organisers of the show to determine these rules and class descriptions.

The production of a schedule will also assist the Organising Committee in preparing sufficient space, equipment and prize cards etc prior to the event.

It also tells the general public / visitors what each class represents.

Typical Rules:

Staging:

The room will be open on dd/mm/yy from x p.m. to y p.m. and on dd/mm/yy from x a.m. to y a.m. for receiving exhibits.

Completed entry forms can be handed in at the registration desk in the room.

Entry cards will be provided for each exhibit and these should be placed face down underneath the corresponding exhibit, except containerised classes where rubber bands are to be used to fix the entry card to the jar or bottle.

Staging is to be completed by x am on dd/mm/yy, when everyone must leave the room except the Show Secretary, Stewards, and Judges.

This will be returned if the objection is valid.

All matters in dispute will be settled by the Show Secretary, whose decision is final and binding.

Exhibits:

This will be strictly enforced.

Exhibits left after x p.m. may be sold (if applicable)

Dishes and Vases will be provided by the Show Secretary.
