    Thanks for posting this Vicky!

    The information was also just posted on Del Bay's website (thanks Sondra!). Here is the link: http://delbayretriever.tripod.com//judgesclinic.pdf

    This should be an invaluable event for anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of the retriever field trial game!

    What's the nearest airport, and how long is it from the airport to the grounds?
    Competition does not build character - It reveals it.

    Ted,

    Nearest airport is at Baltimore, then Washington National, or Delaware would be my best guess.

    Do you have to have had prior judging experience?

    Ted - Most of our judges fly into PHL (Philadelphia Int'l) when they come to judge at Del Bay. There are many good connections and the airport is no more than an hour from the grounds.

    Vicky - No, prior judging experience is not a requirement for attendance.

    Don't let this one slip past you.
    It will be an valuable experience.
    I am sure they will go into, among a host of other things, advice on setting up marks

    "Major airport" trivia....there isn't one in the state of Delaware, the only state in the Union without one....if I recall correctly.... 8)

    Keith Griffith.....and Vicky is correct about Philadephia....not a bad drive, either....
