As chairman of this year's show I was there to oversee the tasks of the day which included getting our new walkie-talkie system synced and remind the city (again) to turn the water off which did not happen up through today (despite our diligent navigation of city bureaucracy to see this done) and thus the sprinklers had wetted the park grounds which need to be dry during the show period starting tomorrow which is set-up. We can now only hope the ground dries out enough to avoid a muddy morass. I also had some branch-clipping duties as some limbs were growing way too low for the good of the dealers and our show visitors.
