Well, we have the answer, and Loic was correct. Congratulations to Loic for having such sharp eyesight.

Keith Keppel, the AIS Registrar at the time the 1999 Checklist was printed writes:

(The) original registration gave pollen parent as a seedling. 1996 correction
changed this to Welcome Aboard. Retyping of text for the 1999 Check
List resulted in the error....changing it to Welcome Reward. Welcome
Aboard IS the correct answer....

I Think there's sth to check here 

As i was making the tree of WIND OF CHANGE  i thought sth was wrong: look at the picture of WELCOME REWARD, it CANNOT BE  the father!

When you compare with it's sibling 4657 NEPTUNE'S COAT  you understand there must have been a swap in the spelling between WELCOME ABOARD and WELCOME REWARD

Especially if you consider that Hager had already used WELCOME ABOARD sib in AUTUMN CLOUD and BLUE ANEW

Accordingly the registration should read:

(Ben Hager, R. 1992). Sdlg. RE4657LtBl. TB 36" (91 cm) M & RE.
"Fluted and ruffled light sky blue; beards white, tipped yellow in throat. T3532LtBl: ((Geometrics sib x Ice Sculpture) x Avalon Bay) X Welcome Aboard. Melrose 1993. HM 1997"

I know it's not very important, and it won't change the face of the earth, but it's worth to pass the information to John Jones who himself can pass it to the person who can correct the data base..

I think the AIS Register is a FANTASTIC tool, i've been studying on it for 2 years now and the amount of knowledge you gradually absorb is tremendous!

I feel it's my duty to add my small contribution to make it better.
Hope i'm not the only one who feels that way!
