Well at the start of the year my goal was to exhibit at the NVS Scottish Branch Championships at Dunfermline with the hope of gaining a "Red" ticket. I did succeed in benching two exhibits this year, but unfortunately did not succeed in gaining a first. There were some great exhibits at the show and two other fellow members of our North of Scotland District Association were also exhibiting. Steve Halifax had a number of exhibits down and gained a good third in the blanched leek class where the best exhibit in show came from. Steve also gained a fourth in the collections which again was a strong section. Graham Taylor from Ardersier was down for his first Branch Championship where he had an excellent show, gaining two thirds and a fourth. Graham had a very well deserved 3rd in the under 250 gms onion class and a forth in the strong blanched leek class. He also gained a third in the 1,1,1 veg class for exhibitors who have never won a red ticket at a NVS show.
Below is my second prize entry in the 1,1,1 class. Sweet candle, Morning Star, Show Perfection.
