	Walter, you are absolutely right.  I am convinced that I would enjoy
any iris convention I could go to.  Unfortunately, I have a limited budget
and limited time for vacation.  I need to be very selective, and pick "the
best" (I know, a very selective term).  The Portland, Oregon area is a mecca
for iris in this country, and a beautifully scenic region; a visitor
planning only one trip to the US would do well to pick Oregon.  This is not
intended to belittle any of the other possibilities in the least.  If my
budget and schedule could handle it, I would go to every AIS National.  The
people and gardens in the iris world are always great.
