Re: Re: TBIS


You emphasized my point very well that all
sections should be treated equally.  To have a
National AIS Convention of only TBs every year is
very unfair.  As a National Convention it should
be rotated and scheduled to cover all the sections
not just TBs.  By doing so AIS would more fully
meet the committment they profess to have----that
of promoting all iris not just TBs.

 a Spring Meeting except at the AIS Convention

 mini-conventions seems a bit unfair to me.  The
 rules should apply equally to all sections. >>

Dear Martha:

It may not seem fair to tall bearded enthusiasts,
but the AIS Convention is a
Tall Bearded Convention.  The only way other types
of irises can be seen is
to have a separate convention.  Miniature dwarf
and Japanese irises are never
seen at the AIS convention.  Only a few standard
dwarf, intermediate, aril
and Siberian irises are blooming in tour gardens.
Louisiana irises are seen
only when conventions are in southern areas.  Is
it fair to these irises to
never be seen by judges?  Also, the AIS convention
section meetings let
people find out more about the other than tall
bearded kinds of irises.
Apparently, many tall bearded iris lovers feel no
other type of iris is
worthy of AIS attention.  With two conventions
competing for tall bearded
judges and for guest irises, I feel that both
would suffer.

I have been avoiding this subject because I got
flamed the last time I said
something about, but I just couldn't keep quiet
any longer.
