Re: Iris Show

From: "Rusty Thornsburg" <rtburg@hotmail.com>

It's been a busy weekend, first with the Fort Worth Show, then with 
the Dallas show!  It has been a real trip; I think I've logged 
somewhere near 200 miles this weekend, but it's been worth it!

What Pat forgot to mention about the Dallas is that this year, thanks 
in part to the new Judge's Handbook rules, we were able to have a Best 
Specimen Youth, and a Youth Sweepstakes.

Frosty Elegance (IB) exhibited by yours truly won Best Youth Specimen. 
 I also won Sweepstakes.  This was particularly sweet for me, because 
this was my last year as a Youth Member.

Saturday, we held the Fort Worth show, which also had 250+ irises on 
display, as well as an artistic division.  Queen of Show in 
Horticulture went to SKATING PARTY, grown by Joe and Donna Spears.  
All of my hort. entries were pathetic (one had 4 falls-- you don't see 
these things when you're still asleep and it's dark outside), but I 
made up for it in the Artisic Division...by winning Best Design of 
Show.  No-one was more surprised than I; that is the stiffest 
competition I've ever seen!

Exhausted, yet ready for more.
