Nothing much so far, David -  Carolyn has some computer probelms and will provide a list of award winners as soon as she can.

 I heard from her that Stan da Prato won the  AGS Slaver for  prizes in Section 1 of the shows, the Rutland Salver for Section 2 of the shows went to Hamish Mackintosh  and the Golden Jubilee Salver to
Carole Bainbridge.
 
Many congratulations to those three!  I am hopeful of some photos  later, and fuller details.

The majority of SRGC members are outside Scotland but I am sure they would like to know, just as much as those of us here who could not attend, about the day.

Carolyn McNab's  "stitchery" work which won the Williamson Trophy for the best craft work -  terrific, isn't it?
Carolyn, also the SRGC Secretary, by the way, calls it " Three dimensional fun " !



This is Rheum nobile, Baima Shan, Yunnan after a visit 2011. 
The open book is a Chinese flora showing the plant.
The Williamson Cup.
