Re: Standard Dwarf Bearded is not a Median???

That MIS web page is a bit inconsistent (or at least confusing) -
It states:

Median – All bearded iris classes (SDBs, IBs, BBs, and MTBs) shorter 
than 27.5"

Why were MDBs and aril-meds left off of the list?

In our club, we circumvent the median definition problem by giving out a
trophy to the best "bearded other than tall" - thought this isn't
strictly a median award, as regular arils & arilbreds are eligible
as well...
