Cly'cuz ..for the record! ..T'was not because "Only registered hostas could be entered?".  IN FACT...   

*As I recall*? ..this was placed into moritorium until sometime in 2001, so the whole business about only registered hostas being participants at a National Convention has been shelved; and of course, I'm assuming? ..this includes! "the REGISTERED HOSTA LIST" as published?

There were unregistered hostas in the AHS AUCTION, even one seedling from Toyozo Nakayama of Japan, coded #TOYOZO-99, and from the pod-parent known as H. 'Urajiro Giboshi' -- a product on the market in Japan; and fetching, $400.00 for the AHS Treasury.  As for?...

Why it was the worst auction in history with respect to entries! ..if it was? ..IS BECAUSE & TO WHIT:
  ..1) the rank & file membership attending convention -- did not participate whole-heartedly in donating "HOSTA-CUSSES" fer auction and...
  ..2) the big H-business boys, known as the Growers Association er sumpin like dat? ..put a boycott on donating same H'cusses?

let's call a spade a spade eh
and put all the cards on the table

:-( huh?

Miss Lucy'Canon,
sendin luv t'y'all
