Because this was a World Federation of Rose Societies International Convention held in conjunction with the ARS National in Vancouver B.C. the rules for awarding the GW RF Best of Show trophy were changed a little to honor the International Exhibitors in Vancouver. It still went to the Best single stem rose but only to non-ARS classes.
ARS 14 - Garden Web Rose Forum Best in Show Trophy
In honor of our International Exhibitors, this trophy will be awarded to the best one stem award winner from any of the non-ARS classes in the Show. Selected from the entries for one stem of any classification only.
