Re: AIS: Serious Stuff about Judges' Ballots
I would dearly love to see the due date for the judges
ballot for the AIS awards be moved to a later date.
You think you have a problem in New Jersey voting the Awards
Bruce FIlardi was kind enough to forward my note to the right folks...
Ballot? I am an AIS Garden Judge in USDA Zone 3a. I hope your
sentiments were included with your ballot about the incredibly
impossible AIS deadline.
I mostly made the request thinking of folks like you. While I didn't
have that much trouble voting the bearded part it was far more of a rush
rush compiling my notes. And for the first time in memory (maybe
forever) I may have JIs still blooming come August!
For those of us in USDA Zones 3 & 4, I will ask for July 15th as
I think it is an annoyance having multiple due dates. Why not send them
all in on Sept 1st? Perhaps I'm just inserting foot in mouth but I think
it would still be possible to compile the results by November... and if
you make the date really reasonable, then there's no reason to do
anything with late votes except deposit them in the circular file!
a 'minimum' for the bearded classes and hopefully Aug. 1st for
Siberians. I still have Siberians in blooming (first bloom)
today, July 8th.
Hahaha. Yep, thats why I said it would be a nice-to-have. But I would be
happy with something simple, a plain text ballot you can maybe download,
fill out and email.
I will not even touch on voting electronically...
I heard tell there are a few in Canada. Perhaps not any more if they
have to vote only on ones seen from notes taken the year before! No
longer on the ballot, oh well...
There are very few AIS Judges in USDA Zones 3 & 4 and I may be
thanks (you and the other folks) for the feedback. I was kinda hoping I
wasn't the only one to wish for this...
Are we having fun yet! <grin>
