Re: Fw: Sports--Help us

Hi Lu,
Your idea is not a new one. Many people have spoken out over the years about registration data that is known to be false but the answer that keeps coming back is that the registration data is written in stone.
There is much more concern about getting every hosta registered than there is about the accuracy of the data recorded. I don't see where the 500 or so newly registered hostas (at large expense to the AHS) has improved the quality of the hostas we buy by even a fraction. What it has done is create a large amount of work that needed to be done in a short amount of time.
I am convinced this workload is now why we are looking for a new Registrar.
Try to get your feedback to the people who can make a change and see how long it takes to get it done. You will get nothing but a river of excuses as to why it can't be done.
