On a cloudy but warm  Saturday 5  October , the Central Daffodil held their late show in the Whanganui City College Hall .A good ,big venue , well lit and good facilities ,we were missing regulars John Hollever , Sue Scott and Wilf Hall but a smaller number of growers managed to stage about 300 blooms .John sent through a large box of good blooms and these were well staged by Brian and others .Panel judging went well and just over 20 blooms made a good top table of good quality premiers but with no absolute standout champion . SANDMERE  GOLD     2 Y- -Y IMG_7573 IMG_7612In a close finish , Wayne Hughes , our host for the day , was awarded Champion Bloom with his own raising , SANDMERE  GOLD ,  2 Y – Y . This very gold and very flat large cup is amassing a good show record in the last few seasons .
