Can only speak for my region.  Although there may be others, I can  only 
recall one being given in my region.  It was an early show and worked  in 
conjunction with the judge's training that was being given in medians.  
More common is the regional garden tour each spring.

Accepted!  No problem!  <vbg>

John, I'm sorry you had such a negative experience.  It can be  difficult to 
break into showing!  Members usually don't mean to be rude or  ignore anyone.  
They are very busy the morning of a show. If you're  new at showing irises, 
it difficult to show up with iris in hand at 10:00 AM in  the prep room.   We 
offer training sessions a week or so earlier, but  people rarely come to the 
In defense of clubs, most are friendly to the viewing audience.  Our  show 
has a "greeting table" where forms for joining the local club and AIS are  
available.  Our members "work" the show (and crowd) to answer any and all  
questions.  And ours is a small club.  

<<I was informed after winning that I had won prizes, only to  have that

club. I was not offered the oppurtunity to join either.  >>
 That is unfortunate.  Our club states in the schedule that it is  open to 
all growers.  

<< internal strife and lack of more than 5 people who would  do any of the 
necessary work to sustain events>>
This will hurt any club.
