Re: AIS:Awards:Symposium

Maybe  this is a politically incorrect statement, but why can't we write any  
in?  Seems like I remember that capability some time ago.  I  have gobs of 
irises that are not top 100, some of which you mention, that  I would love 
to vote for, as they are pretty AND perform.  How does a  relatively new 
iris, one which indeed does seem to walk on water, make the  voting 
list?  There are obviously new varieties on the 100 list every  year.  Maybe 
I shouldn't ask, but who gets them on the ballot to be  voted upon?


George and anyone who may be interested, these are the qualifications/rules  
included on the Symposium ballot as printed and included with the July 2005 
AIS  Bulletin:

Sixty-sixth Official Tall Bearded Iris Symposium of the  American Iris Society
This is your ballot to help determine the One Hundred  Favorite Tall 
Bearded Irises for 2006. The  list of candidates was completed by 
combin­ing  the following lists of outstanding varieties: 
The  100 top varieties in last year's Symposium 
The  tall bearded irises eligible for 2005 Dykes Medal  
The tall bearded irises eligible  for 2005 Wister Medal  
The tall bearded irises eligible  for 2005 Awards of Merit  
The tall bearded irises that won  2004 Awards of Merit  
The  tall bearded irises that won 2004 Honorable  Mentions 
Every member of The American Iris  Society may participate in this balloting 
of the irises listed on  the following pages. Each member is allowed 
twenty-five votes. Please follow the instructions  below. 
1. Vote only for an  iris that you have seen blooming in a garden. 
2. Clearly place an  "X" in front of each of your twenty-five favorites. The 
sec­ond member of a  family membership should use an "0" symbol to 
desig­nate votes. Additional family or  youth members should use a number (1, 
2,3, etc.) in front of each vote to  identify it. Each member is entitled to a 
maximum of twenty-five votes. Since the ballot is  designed for easy 
tabu­lation by the  Regional Vice Presidents, please follow directions  carefully. 
3. No member may vote  for more than twenty-five varieties. You may vote for 
fewer than twenty-five  if you wish. Write-in votes are no longer allowed and 
will not be  tabulated. 
4.  Your ballot must be mailed to and received by your Regional Vice 
President by September 1,  2005 in order to be counted. The name of your RVP is listed 
 inside each AIS Bulletin. Sign your ballot and mail it first class. Each RVP 
now has  the option of accepting ballots by email (by number or by  name). 
5. Overseas Members  may vote by mailing their ballot to the Symposium 
Committee Chairman  whose name, email, and address appear inside each AIS Bulletin. 
It is  advisable to send by Air Mail to assure receipt of your Ballot by the 
deadline of September 15,  2005.  Email is an accept­able alternative  
(either numbers-only, or numbers and names), and a rep­resentative in each 
foreign country can tally  that country's votes and send the  totals and voters 
to the Symposium Chair by email or  mail.
