I'm a judge too.  Each spring, I re-read the judges handbook, and sometimes again just before our local CWIS iris show.  Since my collection is mainly medians and dwarfs, I'm still rather surprised that a judge would make such a comment.  Maybe it was a helper.

Sounds to me like someone has been SLEEPING through their judges training classes , or they are letting their personal preferences cloud their judgment . A huge NO NO !!!! 


Yes I am a JUDGE .

According to the MIS (Median Iris Society) website Medians are defined as ALL bearded irises Sorter than 27.5 " which would also include MDBs. See   http://www.medianiris.com/glossary1.shtml

Which definition is also concurrent with The World Of Irises classifications, pp121-178

Hi Janet,

An AIS Judge really ought to know better. The Median class consists of:
It's possible the person in question was thinking of MDB's (dwarf)

Hello all,
Fresno Iris Society had their spring show last Saturday. Small but considering all the weather we have had close to 100 irises showing is not bad.  Bill Tyson's seedling won best of show, a nice looking pink aril (forgot if it was bred or med.)
One of the judges said our schedule was wrong!  SDBs are not medians and should not be classed as such.
Now I really am confused and thought I would ask the question here.  Are SDBs in with the IBs and BBs as a median?????
She could not find it in the judges handbook either - I asked her to show me where it was so stated.
