In competition? Why would it be in competition? The national was over and to 
my knowledge only a few attended that tour. This isn't a big promoted tour as 
some seem to think. To my knowledge most attend the AIS convention also. I 
don't see what all the hullabaloo is over myself. I think some want to make 
the pre-tour to be more than what it actually is all about. 

Now this is my opion and mine only so don't go saying TBIS said this or 
that.....But I would like to see either TBIS be a section or recognized as a 
cooperating society so we can hold the convention for AIS each year. Maybe we 
could raise some much needed money for AIS if they would let us. I believe if 
its run right both organizations could benefit greatly. This would free AIS 
to oversee all the iris organizations cooperating as well as sections. But 
the problem I see as a lifetime member of AIS is all the politics.  AIS 
created it's own problems but had well intentions by creating the sections. 
Now what you have is each class with its own group that want to have it their 
own way. Therefore you have a lot of bickering and politics which most of us 
could care less about and only want to have fun. Until we go back to having 
fun I am afraid what the future has in store. 

Now why TBIS was formed...If I am not mistaking it was formed to let AIS 
promote all class of iris in it's bulletin on an equal level. You can't have 
the organization promoting all classes but still claim it's a TB 
organization.  If your going to promote then promote all classes with each 
class having it's society and you be the overseer. But most important of 
all...we have to promote to the public this is fun. Until we show others it's 
fun to belong then we will never be recognized again as one of the top 
flowers in the world. FUN FUN FUN is what it's all about, not bickering or 
politics. This goes for all iris organizations. 

I oppoligize for my grammar. But I get so worked up when adults can't act as 
adults. I'm not talking about on this list. I feel everyone here feels the 
same about this LET's SOLVE THIS NOW!!! Maybe we need to start a write in 
campaign to both organizations and tell them we want this resolved. If 
everyone on here wrote a letter to each president just maybe this would get 
things moving in the right direction.
