The 2006 Show

This summer's strange weather caused problems for Northwest dahlia growers and was reflected by a lower bloom count at our show. The lack of blooms, especially those in the large and giant categories, did not, however, diminish the quality of the blooms entered. Gorgeous flowers in many classifications produced spirited competition for the Best in Show bloom. This years Best in Show winner, Light Accord, was grown by Al and Michelle Kaas. Newcomers to dahlia growing, the Kaas's have produced quick results in garnering their 1st Best of Show Award in only their third year of competition. The Best Triple Bloom entry went to Paul and Cheryl Howard from Frazer Valley with perfectly matched blooms of Snoho Doris. The Best Basket in Show was a stunning display of expertly matched Ruskin Andreas entered by Les and Vivian Connell. Gordon Jackman, as he so often does, won the Best Arrangement in Show with a very creative display of "Sascha" representing the Crater Lake National Park category.
