Comments of Kirby Fong, ADS Show Chairman
The Fortuna daffodil show was held last
weekend in the new River Lodge
It is a comfortable and spacious place to have a daffodil show. The space enabled 18 arrangers to show off 57 artistic design entries. The tri-color winner had a couple rectangular black frames, some modern, rectangular containers, and what seemed like a helix of yellow-red daffodils.
In picking the best of show, one of the two final candidates was Ron Scamp's S686, 11aY-O. This was also the best intermediate in the show. It lost to Sid DuBose's seedling in a very close vote.
Those of you planning to take the pre-convention tour from San Franciso to Portland next year will get to see the Fortuna show and will be glad you did!
