Murray Lyon trophy for a Tayside resident went to Richard Salvin, Cox trophy for best rhodo to Dora Amateis from Dave Millward, bulb trophy for Frit  pallidiflora to Richard Green. I had the Caird trophy for a six pan class,  also  took the Middleton cup for most firsts while the Perth trophy for most points by a local grower  was won by Ian Christie.

Really great  to hear from you Stan!  It looks a lovely show- a credit to Alison Hogg and her Team.
 I gather that this was Cyril's 65th Forrest medal - what a record!!
He is a star in the SRGC firmament for these winners, but thank goodness there are others showing too. Super to see your pix from Section II - where the future of our Shows lie.
