Hi Linda,

My question is what are you selling?  Cut stems, rhizomes, potted irises or 
other plants?  It seems to me that both showing and selling would be very 
exhausting.  We don't have enough active members to have shifts coming and 
going.  We have to struggle to get the five exhibitors that AIS now requires 
for an official show.  We just made it at our early iris show last Saturday.  
We drive 70 miles round trip and were the first and last ones there.  We also 
brought the vast majority of specimens and arrangements.  This resulted in 
our winning Best Specimen and Runner-up, Best Seedling, Hort. Sweepstakes, 
Best Design and Runner-up and Arrangement Sweepstakes.  The only award we 
couldn't win was Runner-up Hort. Sweepstakes.  I would be a lot happier to 
win fewer awards and have more interest in entering by our members.  And a 
lot more cooperation in setting up and taking down the show.  At least, we 
didn't have to move tables.  That was taken care of by the mall.
