Re: Region 21 Symposium
1) don't see enough TB's to make an informed decision
You are not voting one against another - if you grow 5, and 3 do very
well year after year, vote for the 3. Just because there is 25 max votes
you can vote 1-25. That's the idea. 1000 people voting for iris "A"
must mean iris "A" is worth having.
2) don't see the *point* of a beauty contest for current flowers
NO NO NO, that's what a Judge does. The membership when voting
the symposium does the judges job for them. ;-)
3) seems like the same 15 or 20 `win' in all sections of N. America
Because more people do not vote. Even now the top winners of the
symposium are dogs.
I was thinking of `why vote? it doesn't matter'. Feel the same way about
living in a state with 4 electoral votes...
Could really get on my soap box, but please NEVER feel like your vote

trail....sorry another soap box...
I would prefer to say "not enough non-TBs."
Do away with the TB symposium - seriously. It is obviously not a real
symposium....hardly anybody votes - there are reasons why -
APATHY - laziness - "Who cares". Guess what? It's getting
worse, but change must come from the grass roots level. (or iris roots
Get out there and VOTE!!!!!
