  1. The Show is sanctioned by The American Camellia Society and will be conducted in accordance with the latest revision of “Rules and Regulations Governing Procedures and Judging of ACS Cooperative Shows”. The Show Chairperson may establish such further rules as deemed necessary for the proper conduct of the Show. In all cases, the decision of the judges will be final.
  2. Entries will be received 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Saturday.
  3. Standard Entry Cards will be used and should include the name of the variety. Exhibitors are encouraged to have the bloom size circled and class entered.
  4. Any individual may exhibit. Entries must be from plants owned by and in the possession of exhibitor for at least 30 days. Exhibitor does not have to be a member of a camellia society.
  5. Entries must have only one bloom to a stem, and at least one but not more than two leaves but not necessarily attached. Wiring of blooms is permissible.
  6. The ACS recognizes the “Camellia Nomenclature” published by the Southern California Camellia Society (SCCS) as The nomenclature publication. To win an ACS Certificate or Award, except for seedlings and sports, the variety MUST be listed in the 1981 “Camellia Nomenclature Historical Edition”, the current edition of “Camellia Nomenclature”, or the “Camellia Nomenclature Supplement” published at www.americancamellias.org/assets/SCCS Supplement.pdf. This includes varieties; (1) with errors corrected, (2) registered with ACS but omitted from the “Camellia Nomenclature”, (3) registered with ACS and listed in subsequent issues of the ACS “The Camellia Journal” and “American Camellia Yearbook” and (4) registered with the SCCS subsequent to the publication of the “Camellia Nomenclature”.
  7. No bloom can compete in more than one class and may win only one award.
  8. Unprotected blooms are defined as those grown in natural surroundings without any manmade protection from the elements.
  9. The Show Chairperson or representative reserves the right to reject or discard flowers that are obviously inferior in quality.
  10. If only one bloom of a variety is entered, it shall constitute a class, and shall be judged accordingly.
  11. To help control the spread of disease, all blooms and associated scions (wood that is attached to the bloom) become the property of the Sand Hills Garden Club.
  12. Awards in any division may be withheld if, in the opinion of the judges, no flower deserves the award.
  13. Classification as to size will be in accordance with the latest edition of “Camellia Nomenclature. Where a bloom is classified to include two sizes, the smaller size shall determine the award class with the exception of miniatures. Blooms must be classified as miniature only, not miniature to small to compete in the Miniature Class.
  14. A Novice is defined as an individual who has never won a “Head Table Award” at an ACS Camellia Show.
  15. Blooms will be displayed in containers provided or equivalent to those provided and may not be visually “enhanced” by placing blooms on a bed of polyfil, cotton, moss, or similar products.
  16. Judges must disqualify themselves while their blooms are being judged.
  17. The use of collars for supporting large blooms is permitted.
  18. No distinction shall be made by the judges between chemically treated and non-treated blooms.
  19. The Sand Hills Garden Club, its officers and members, are not under any Circumstances responsible for the loss or damage to flowers or other property or for the injury to persons.
