This sounds like you are fairly well set to set up all aspects of your shows!
I think the arranging portions of the shows are great! We don't have that many 
arrangers at our show. In fact if I remember correctly when I asked about it I 
was told that they had sort of gotten away from that aspect of the show, but 
that there were some people from a florist school or something like that who 
made arrangements for the show from Iris provided by the society members.
Well, speaking of shows, The King County Iris Society is exhibiting at the 
Seattle Garden Show and I have to be there shortly for my turn in the booth.

Thanks for your input on the show preparation etc. I am going to bring this 
information back to our meeting with me. Of course everyone else may already 
know or have thought of all of this stuff. I myself am still fairly new at all 
of these show things, only going on my second year.
