General Trek Details
Region 15 hosts two region meetings per year; a Spring Trek and a Fall Trek. The Treks are hosted by our societies on a rotating basis. We try to arrange the Trek Wheel so that meetings are held in alternating states (AZ or CA) so that members are not forced to travel long distances every year.
The Fall Trek is usually a one day event with Executive Board and General Membership meetings, a judges training session, a luncheon and a guest speaker. This meeting is an information meeting attempting to provide our judges with the on going training they need and an informative speaker to give us insights into what is happening in the world of iris.
The Spring Trek is usually a one or two day meeting with garden tours to view seedlings and new introduction in the garden setting. This also whets our appetites for new iris that we "just have to have" in our own gardens and provides feedback to the hybridizers around the country. It also allows our judges the opportunity to see new iris and gives them a chance to evaluate the iris for possible awards. The Spring Trek gives our judges a chance to get 2 to 4 hours of training. The Spring Trek also makes everyone a judge in their own right by letting them vote for their favorite irises seen on the Trek and various awards are given to hybridizers at the Awards Banquet held on the last night of the event.
