Chris, I do know about '"show in a box" - was present when it was first 
introduced.  In my mind it was intended to boost someone's visibility on the 
National Garden Club level.  It's not a really bad idea, just not very good either.  
The concept behind it is to encourage small clubs that have not previously 
had flower shows.  A large club or a Judges Council would "mentor" the club by 
giving it the box full of the necessary items for putting on a show, such as 
bottles for horticulture, entry cards, ribbon dividers, etc., and then help them 
step by step through the process.  The "show in a box" was just a catchy 
title.  It has been taken up and presented as an easy way to put on a show by 
people who didn't quite understand it. Of course, there still has to be a schedule 
for the show, and all the other details that go with it, which can't possibly 
be put into a box.  I see that your District has a chairmanship for that, and 
that Connie Schwaninger is the Chairman.  I'd best not comment.  Do you know 
Joan Corbisiero?  She is the best advisor I know on flower show matters, or 
almost anything else for that matter.  
 I won't get started on what is going on at the National level these days - 
it's almost enough to make me want to retire.  Auralie
