2017 LITTLE ROSE SHOW RULES
The BRS monthly little rose show will be held at the April, May, August, September, October & November general membership meetings. The purpose is to share the beauty of the roses grown by our members and to educate members about entering American Rose Society (ARS) Rose Shows. It should be fun and celebratory; not overly competitive. All members are encouraged to participate. There will be helpers for those who need guidance in exhibiting their roses.
- Novice (N) (Would be a Novice in an official ARS show) There is no time limit on how long a member may remain a Novice, unless the member has won a Best of Class or Queen in an Amateur Class in an ARS Rose Show and is then required to exhibit as an Amateur.
- Intermediate (I) (Would be an Amateur in an official ARS Rose Show) A member who has won a Best of Class or Queen in an Amateur Class in an ARS Rose Show and has been an exhibitor for less than five years.
- Advanced (A) (Would be an Amateur in an official ARS show) A member who has been an exhibitor for 5 years or more, AND has won a Best of Class or Queen in an Amateur Class in an official ARS Rose Show.

Third place award = 1 point
Plus additional points for: Best of Class = 2 points
