I also think we need to honor or promote the 40’s<60’s with their own class as these were/are the building blocks of genetic material that allowed the breeders to continue on the quest for the “perfect” show daffodils.

We could create a “Baby Boomer Class” again using the introduction dates on the entry cards so that folks wandering through a show could see what varieties were available or bred around the time they were born.
Then of course while you are creating this class then go ahead and set up the “Hippie Class” that would include part of the 60’s on through the 70’s…
I guess the “Yuppie Class” would be next followed by the “X-Generation” this should coincide with the varieties that have “Ten Generations” of crosses in their pedigrees:-))
It just “might” make a daffodil show/display more interesting to the average person wandering by the blooms…..
