Re: AIS: registration, out of class

To me it seems that we shouldn't lump these two cvs. together in
these (judging) thread. BATIK might be in the wrong class
through registration (I have judged it as a BB and it seemed
always in class here in New England - we always see quite a few
BATIKS in our shows). On the other hand, CITY LIGHTS was grown
very tall by one person who entered a particular show, etc. The
AIS judges made the call.

We do penalize too-tall BBs (common in this class) but in my
short judging tenure, I have not come across a situation where a
TB was marked down as being too tall and we have some tall TBs
especially at the Maine shows.
