The Annual Spring Tune-Up  is POSTPONED

Sorry to say we will postpone the Natures Shapes Contest this weekend till sometime at a later date once we can line things up. We are going to be getting a late season nor’easter on Saturday and those who endured last years end of the season contest will understand why we are going to pass on doing that again. We are going to respect Mother’s day and not hold the makeup contest this Sunday. We will post the makeup contest as soon as we can agree on a date and refile our permit to hold the contest.


Adult Judging Classes Hurley Center Long Beach

Judges classes. On May 7, 2017 starting at 4 PM for two hours. It will be held at the Hurley Center on the boardwalk in Long Beach. This class is strictly for the ESA Member who will be judging this summer season for the NY ESA District and those who want to learn how to judge. This will be one of many I hope where we will all learn what to look for when judging and how to score it.
