Are you looking forward to Exhibitors and Judges School #2 on August 27-28, 2021? It will be held at the Crowne Plaza, Columbus North-Worthington.
Registration is $45 per day and can be made via the OAGC website or by mail. Please make room reservations directly with the hotel, 1-877-227-6963.
We held School #1 via Zoom for 50 participants. It was an historic first for OAGC! We also introduced the Module concept. This includes chapter reading from the OAGC Handbook for Exhibitors and Judges and study guides, as well as supportive information which was emailed to paid registrants prior to the school. Instructors’ presentations include a hands-on session followed by question and answers.
Many participants commented on how helpful they found the study guides were to help them prepare for the topics. We will continue to send the material to registered participants prior to each school.
School #2 topics will include gladiolus* Ch. 26; succulents and cactus* Ch. 26; plant identification*; zinnia Ch. 41 and marigolds Ch. 34; and tips for exhibiting.
Design topics: traditional basic designs* Ch. 12; miniature and small designs Ch. 4; planning and staging flower shows; and schedule writing Ch. 1-3.
Elements and principles of design are reviewed; judging and procedures are addressed, and a hands-on design study is offered.
Participants should review the topic chapters in the OAGC Handbook for Exhibitors and Judges prior to the school.
Copies of the OAGC Handbook for Exhibitors and Judges may be purchased from the OAGC Sales Secretary, Naomi Ormes, for $25 plus postage. She can be contacted at OAGCSalesSec@gmail.com
