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 [Page 9] should be permitted to rearrange his stands & 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.It was also passed unanimously that the radius for amateur exhibitors be extended to the limit of 10 miles from the Cathedral.
