1-some people -- like me -- join only for information with no 
intention of coming to meetings. I have been a member for years, but 
only started showing three years ago. I've only been to a few 
meetings in all this time.

2-Distance is a big problem. Most of the meetings are held 1-1/2 to 2 
hours away from me. And by their nature, all of the regions have to 
be spread out. It's usually a lot easier just to visit someone's 
garden nearby than to attend a meeting or a show.

3-If many people are offering financial support only by joining, 
what's so bad about that? There a lot more people who admire irises 
on a casual basis than those who get deep enough to hybridize.
