Re: AIS: Types of Judges

Someone has written to me privately to say that they thought that I had been discourteous and dismissive to Walter Moores in my reply to his post.

I meant neither, and would like to apologize to Walter specifically and the list in general if it seemed that way. I thought I was merely expressing an opinion, but realize I could have been more circumspect in my choice of words.

Walter said he thought the the subject had come up before the AIS Board of Directors.

I searched the minutes of the AIS BOD meetings from '88 through '01. I found several instances that the subject of whether or not there should be a separate classification of judges for Garden and Show judges, which I take to be a different subject than that which Walter was addressing. Maybe I am misinterpreting what Walter was talking about, or maybe I am just confused.

If anyone is interested I can post the citations, but there isn't much more than Judges Training Chair Mullen asking if AIS should have different classifications and standards for the two types of judges. No action was taken.

Again, my apologies, and thanks for the person writing to me.
