I have posted the notification of the new Gourd division & its 7 classes at the FL State Fair competition on the AGS website. It would be great it you were to share it on the FGS facebook page and encourage your chapter and patch members to enter it as well as your show. The dates "just" work for people to enter the state fair and pickup their entries and enter them in the FGS show.
I hope it helps FGS gain even more visibility and new members as a result of this event. This year (2019) was the first time we had a gourd category in the NYS fair (1...but a good start). We were given a demo day and got new members as a result.
Thank you Tonia for volunteering to be their gourd judge.
