The discussion on judging flowers
by points was reopened & it was proposed
by Mr Tyson & 2nded by Mr Moorhouse
that the maximum number of points be 3.
The subject of transferring stands
& flowers from the amateur class, after
being judged there, to the open class for
judgement was next considered — the
question at issue being whether an exhibitor

& substitute any other flower for a defective
flower therein. The matter was ultimately
deferred until the next meeting.
The new rules were next discussed
& some progress made in drafting them.

the radius for amateur exhibitors be extended
to the limit of 10 miles from the Cathedral.
