RE: Judging - one person, three votes
Rusty, commenting on People's Choice Awards:
Well, if it's the most striking they're looking for, then it stands to reason
their votes may dovetail with the judges'. After all, we picked Dusky
as the most striking iris... and last year it also won the most blue ribbons.
Queen of Show, I'm in a hurry...)
Actually, in 1995 DUSKY CHALLENGER was Queen of Show at the Santa Fe Iris
Society show. It also won the People's Choice award. It was a monster stalk.
But aside from that once, the People's Choice has never been the same as the
Queen of Show. You can always be sure that show visitors will pick a)a TB,
the bigger the better, and b)the brightest or most deeply colored or most
unusually colored--Circus Stripes is a favorite--iris there.
