Hi Neil,

I am so sorry that you were unable to pursue reinstating your judges status.  
What I was trying to point out regarding emeritus status was that it takes a 
cheering section to promote it and provide the background information to the 
AIS Board.  I think that those who are not on this talk venue don't realize all 
you are doing to educate beginners and so-called experts alike.  Perhaps Bill 
can still spearhead a movement to this end.

We were at the AIS Fall Board meeting when they announced our appointment.  
Hooker Nichols, who was then Judges Chairman, came to us and said this was not 
a license to give up our work as judges.  We are still giving judges training 
and attending National and Regional conventions and hope our health holds out 
a little longer so we can continue to do so.  However, as you have found, it 
gets more difficult as aging creeps up on you.  I have been involved with 
irises for 55 years--not quite as long as you--but it is getting harder and harder 
to keep up our gardens.  Right now we are faced with moving our entire large 
public display garden, because the city is erecting several new buildings on 
the property.

Anyway, please keep up the help you are giving all of us on iris hort.
