Boy, I'll say it doesn't match. Not even close. It doesn't match the
printed 1994 or 90s cumulative R&I's either.

When we combined the file (which was a bit mangled) for the pre-existing
1998 Rebloom checklist with the new file we were creating, we did <not>
compare the existing entries from the 1998 rebloom checklist to the R&Is
& online data. Unfortunately, what is in the checklist for FREQUENT
FLYER is exactly what came from the 98 rebloom checklist.

Who knows where the entry came from originally. Only thing I can figure
is that Richard Gibson was thinking of introducing something under that
name in 1992, then superceded it with what is now registered under that
name, but somehow, the checklist folks wound up with the earlier

Nothing in the online registry is under the seedling number(024-1)in the
rebloom checklist, but the numbering system matches that used for the
two introductions by Richard Gibson in the online database. Also, there
is nothing in the online database with the pedigree given in the
rebloom checklist (High Ho Silver X Champagne Elegance).

I sure hope there aren't more of those kinds of errors - anybody have
time to compare all the entries in the 98 checklist to the online
version? Let us know if you find more ;-)
