That is not a fair name to give any iris "Green Gangrene"  who would buy it or vote for an iris with such a name.  I hope you all are kidding about the name.

     Walter responded:

     Well, our club met and we voted!  But, did we do it correctly?  We had no
  guidelines.  We had to make up rules as we went, almost.  Our first 
  ground rule was that an iris had to get five votes to get recorded as 
  a favorite on the ballot.

     Several questions arose and the most important was if seven people 
  vote for GREEN GANGRENE, do we record all seven votes or just place
  one x in the blank?  We decided on the latter, so each iris that was 
  voted on got only one vote, provided at least five members raised 
  their hands.  Is that the way the ballot is supposed to be marked?  
  We still don't know?  There is an "O" for the second member of the 
  family, but in the case of affiliate voting, what are the other 
  letters for the third, fourth votes, etc?  Or, can we use numbers and 
  record "7" for GREEN GANGRENE?  Who knows?

     When one affiliate votes one way and another votes another, I can 
  see that all affiliate votes should be thrown out.

     I think Ellen and I are in the same camp on this along with other 
  affiliates when they try to make this work.  There just isn't enough 
  information to make it work for affiliates this first time around.

    Gerry explained earlier:

     Walter responded again:

     I consider this major policy.  Whether it is a change in policy or not, I don't
  know. I have not seen or don't remember the original policy as it has 
  never been implemented in the two AIS regions I have voted in. I 
  further think the decision to put the affiliate vote on the ballot 
  should have been brought to the Board and approved by them first.  
  Then, it would have been in the minutes.  As most things are referred 
  to a committee and studied, the "Affiliates Vote" should have 
  received this attention because the mechanics of the vote seem flawed 
  as evidenced by our struggle with it this afternoon.  A committee 
  would have provided guidelines and not left the Affiliates Vote for 
  somebody just to find in the directions and miraculously know how to 

  Now we have a "Florida Vote" situation in AIS!
