These additional requirements are probably one of the reasons that Region
4 has so many great judges and superior gardens!
Carolyn, I do not have the exact requirements handy at present, but they are
in general that an apprentince has to have a minimum number of hours of both
in garden and show training for BOTH bearded and beardless irises....the AIS
requirements at present do not specify both beardless and bearded
irises....and a great number of people are elevated to judgeship without ever
having in garden or show training in judging beardless irises or species.
The consenusus in Region 4 is that a person is not ready for making
judgements on beardless irises until he has had training in judging beardless
irises. Clarence Mahan in VA
