AIS: semi-Historic D.M. Ballot


From: Mike Lowe <mlowe@worldiris.com>

I always vow that I will xerox my completed AIS Ballot prior to 
sending it in -- however, I nearly always forget or am too pushed for 
time to do so.

The discussion on percentage of votes for any one cultivar under the 
present system, prompted me to search through the files for an old, 
xeroxed Ballot. I found a copy of the 1987 AIS Ballot.

The percentage of cultivars eligible for the Dykes Memorial Medal in 
1987, ranked by class is noted below:

50.75%    TB
  8.96%    Arils
  5.97%    BB
  5.97%    IB
  5.97%    SDB
  4.48%    MDB
  4.48%    MTB
  4.48%    SPU
  2.99%    CA
  2.99%    JI
  1.49%    LA
  1.49%    SIB

TBs, SIBs and LAs were under represented in 1987, going by numbers 
introduced; several of the classes were very much over represented.

The AIS Board has changed Dykes Medal eligibility rules a number of 
times since 1987. Each change seems to result in greater 
dissatisfaction with the system. TBs have gone from 50% of the 'Dykes 
eligibles' to less than 2% of eligibles and have swung back towards 
the larger figure. Satisfaction level of TB enthusiasts has not 
paralleled the changes in numbers, nor do the proponents of other 
classes believe that any of the permutations have increased the 
chances of a non-TB winning the Dykes Memorial Medal.

                 1987 Dykes Memorial Medal Ballot, 67 ELIGIBLES
