Question:  Should this be changed?  Should the Handbook be changed (now 
is the time since it is being rewritten?)  I find it interesting how many 
awards are handed out to those varieties that did so well in National 
Convention gardens.  The system needs overhauling, esp. for TB's.  I know 
it seems like I am picking on the TB's, BUT, if the TB's are the major 
variety that sells every year....shouldn't they be the finest things we 
can produce?  Just a thought!
