2.  To be eligible for entry, rose varieties must be recognized and listed in the most recent edition of Modern Roses 12 (book & database); the Official List of Approved Exhibition Names for Exhibitors & Judges; the most current issue of the ARS Handbook for Selecting Roses; or recent registration on the ARS website. In cases where a variety is not listed in any of the above official ARS publications, the Combined Rose List (CRL) may be used as a reference.  The authorized exhibition name will be printed in Bold Type.  Use this name only. Exceptions to the requirement that a rose be exhibited under a name that has been recognized by the American Rose Society is Class 59. (Mystery roses)

3.  Members of the Butte Rose Society, as well as any other interested party, may submit entries as long as the specimens are grown outdoors in their own garden unless otherwise noted.

4.  One person, or team, from the same garden may enter as many blooms in a class as desired, provided that each entry is a different variety.  This means that only one specimen of the same variety can be entered from the same garden in the same class.

6.  Entry tags and most containers will be provided by the Society unless otherwise noted in the Festival Guidebook.
