Re: Region 21 Symposium

I don't think the symposium has the same weight as the Judges' ballot we MUSSST
return, does it?  It seems more like a "popularity contest" than an evaluation
 from folks who have been trained to carefully at specific characteristics.

Perhaps the general public doesn't get the results of the symposium in the
form of announcements of awards, as with the Official Ballot, which leads
to the Dykes, and maybe the general public doesn't quite understand the

In any case, voting the symposium is an opportunity for gardeners who are
not judges to vote for their favorite iris, for whatever reasons they have.

And the results are interesting for regions to see how many of which cvs 
are grown/voted in each of the regions.  Some folks would even go so far
as to keep a list of WHO grows which so the iris can be visited.

The main point of the symposium is to develop a list of iris enjoyed by the
voters, with no more significance attached.
