2014 Nicola Valley Fall Fair Entries Catalogue

Welcome to the 2014 Nicola Valley Fall Fair! As you may or may not be aware, the Nicola Valley Fall Fair Association has been in operation in the Nicola Valley for over 100 years, and our 2013 Fair was a resounding success as our entries more than doubled. Way to go Merritt! We look forward to seeing even more participants in 2014. This massive undertaking would not be possible without the many hours of work from innumerable dedicated volunteers as well as support from our local business community. Volunteers are always welcome and we have many volunteer opportunites for all ages, even one hour of help is appreciated. The Fall Fair Association encourages participation from all age groups: from children in kindergarten to seniors. The Fair encompasses hobbies, homecrafts, flowers, baking, canning, fruits, vegetables, forage and crops, wine, fine arts, photography, poultry, pigeons, rabbits, cavies, hamsters, dairy goats, sheep and swine. As some of you well know we have been having Giant Yard Sales at the Fair Building over the past several summers. We have been raising funds to enable us to have the water and sewer lines installed up to the building, we hope to accomplish this in the not too distant future. Our next step will be to fundraise to build washroom facilities. Marianne Reimer, President, Nicola Valley Fall Fair Association

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 $25 Cash sponsored by Rivercity Mechanical. See item # 78 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.
