Judges training videos do exist related to arils and arilbreds and they are
quite helpful.  The Albuquerque Aril Society, a local group, sponsored taping
the last judging workshop given by Howard Shockey, in May, 1994 and a subsequent
presentation by Luella Danielson two years later.  Both individuals are or were
noted arilarians and iris judges.  Both were professionally taped and some of
the costs were underwritten by other iris societies in New Mexico.  One of the
tapes has been used for official AIS judges training earlier this year, with 
AIS Judge's Chair approval.  Discussion by a qualified individual and a written 
examination were mandatory. Based on this experience, I believe that such videos
have much to offer, especially related to iris types which tend to be regionally
concentrated so that speakers are not readily available without long distance
travel costs.  The Albuquerque Aril Society makes these tapes available for purchase
at a cost of $20 each (including postage).  Contact me offline if interested.
