Iris Shows -- Diversions

A couple of additions to the excellent suggestions already put forth for crowd

1.	Displays go up the night before, so they are ready to distract and
entertain the crowd even during entry and placement.  Posters.  Pictures.
How-to demonstrations.  Basically educational stuff, but set up as a
public-service display rather than an entry in the educational division of the
show.  It can certainly include things like posters entered in the educational
division in an earlier year. 

2.	The MVIS variation on the previously-discussed "Unnamed Beauties"
section:  having it judged by one or more accredited AIS judges, who are not
judging the rest of the show because they are members of the local club, and
scheduling that judging DURING final classification check of the main show so
that this unsanctioned section is available for viewing by the public by the
time "real" judging starts.
