2012 Nicola Valley Fall Fair Entries Catalogue

Welcome to the 2012 Nicola Valley Fall Fair! Hello everyone, another year has passed and we would like to invite you to come and see all the things the Fall Fair has to offer people of all ages. There is a very large children's section, photography, vegetable & fruit, baking, canning, flowers, as well as outdoor exhibits of chickens, rabbits, pigeons, and much more. There will be outdoor displays from Douglas Lake and GreenWay Equipment and an Old Car display. Please also note the BCAAFE Member’s Choice awards on page 7. We have come a long way in the years that I have been involved with the Fall Fair. We have seen many improvements in the exhibition and poultry buildings. This year we are closer to having water and sewer in the buildings on the Fair grounds. With the city's extension of the sewer line on the property we are hoping to raise enough money with the aid of gaming grants to have washroom facilities in the near future. There are no words to thank all of the volunteers, sponsors, members, judges and exhibitors who help make the Fall Fair the great show that it is, we could not have done it without you all! Thanks to you we have a great annual event the whole community can be proud of. Hope to see you all there! If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me or call any of the conveners in the catalogue. Don't forget we are always looking for new volunteers to help.

HINTS FOR EXHIBITORS • • • • •

First and foremost, if you are an exhibitor, be a good sport. Be on time with your exhibits. The criticism of the public for a show not opening on time is often aimed at the judges, when in fact, it is the fault of the late exhibitors. Follow the schedule explicitly. If the rules or schedule are not clear, obtain a ruling before the show, not after. (Read the Schedule carefully). Do not blame the show committee if they fail to bring to your attention that you have entered the wrong number of specimens in a class. It is your responsibility, not theirs. Label your entry with the correct cultivar (variety) name even though the schedule may not ask for it. This adds to the educational value of the show.

Best Overall Potted Plant section "A"- $15 Cash - Sponsored by Century 21 Moving Real Estate Ltd. Best Artistic Display of a Single Bloom section "A" - $5 Cash - Sponsored by Century 21 Moving Real Estate Ltd. Special Prize - in memory of Joan Koller a $15 Gift Certificate sponsored by Crystal Gardens Restaurant. See item # 77 Rules • All flowers must have been grown by the exhibitor with the exception of dried flowers, which may include wild flowers gathered and dried by the exhibitor. • All cut flowers must be in plain jars in proportion to the size of the flowers. Stems should be the same length, if possible. If the flowers are a single variety, then the blooms should be approximately the same size.

• Potted plants must be shown in the pot they have been grown in for at least one year, with the exception of seasonal outdoor plants. Fancy pots or baskets are acceptable. • Arrangements of dried or fresh flowers may be shown in pretty containers. • Theme arrangements must be named and use mostly cut flowers and vegetation in the display with appropriate artificial objects, if desired. • Only one entry per class.

Flower Section • Tea Rose - is a large single bloom on a stem. Grandiflora - large rose - group on a single stem. Floribunda - usually has a spray of flowers at the end of a stem. To show it should be symmetrical from side & top view. Glads - Stem should be straight - bloom should be - Bottom 1/3 of stem fully open - middle 1/3 of stem half open - top 1/3 of stem closed buds. Blooms should be tight together up the stem so stem does not show - blooms should be evenly balanced on both sides of the stem. • If at all possible, please bring flowers in your own jars and sized appropriately, ie: Glads and other tall flowers in carafes. We do have some jars. • Try to get as long a stem as possible for showing roses, dahlias, glads, asters, etc. The longer the stem, the better they show. • There should be no leaves appearing below the water line. • If a class says 3 flowers, make sure there are no buds. A bud showing colour is considered a bloom and is then disqualified due to too many flowers. If picked at night before show, it has a great possibility of becoming partially open, ie: petunias, dahlias, asters, roses etc. • All plants should be clean and tidy. No dead leaves or debris in the pot or on the plant. Please remove dust. Loosen soil with a fork. • African Violets must be a single crown unless they belong to the trailing class. Cut flowers Class no. 1. Hybrid tea - 1 bloom with own foliage 2. Hybrid tea - 1 bud with own foliage 3. Rose - Grandiflora - 1 bloom with own foliage 4.
