I grow all the above with the exception of "Pacific Destiny" . Would I vote 
for these for the DKYES MEDAL? Yes, even though they may lack bud count I 
would because they all perform well for me. I believe sometimes we put to 
much emphasis on bud count than we do on how an iris performs. The public 
could care less if it has 7 buds or 9-11 buds but ask if they care if that 
iris grows then listen to the response. I'm not saying throw away the Judges 
Manual we need guidlines to go by but use it as a guidline. Remember this, 
some individual wrote the guidlines for that particular iris class, it was 
his/her opinion. In my honest opinion I would like to see the AIS more 
emphasis on touring gardens than iris shows. The club can advertise that the 
public is welcome to come on the garden tour. I believe your going to reach 
people that are really interested in gardening moreso than at shows. They can 
see what classes of iris are available in the actual garden setting instead 
of in a bottle. The world continues to move forward but seems to me some of 
the clubs or organizations would rather sink than make minor changes. Your 
not going to change this at the local level without the national organization 
pushing with the help of us telling them this is what we want. We have 
ourselves to blame because we don't let our <directors> know how we feel. 
Remember they have their own opinion also..nothing wrong with that we all are 
allowed our opinions but with our help you can change theirs because they are 
in a position that they have to listen. I want to say I ADMIRE ALL THE 
OFFICERS and DIRECTORS of the AIS for they spend many many hours running this 
organization but with little THANKS. Maybe we should start a THANKYOU 
campaign, sending a THANKYOU card to all the officers, directors, & anyone 
else that holds a position. What does everyone think? Let me hear your ideas.
