Anthony Heath just raised an interesting point on another thread. One club, three qualified judges as members, trading assignments in order to get judges for their test.

If a club holds two trials a year, and each trial requires eight judges, that means a club would have to have sixteen assignments to trade in order to fill their club's billot. If each judge would commit to (only) two assigments each a year, then a club would be required to have EIGHT qualified judges to trade assignments!

Now no one needs to tell me that it doesn't entirely work that way. :roll: I know that. But it is worth thinking about.

This poll is for both HT and FT judges. How many judging assignments do you commit to every year?

Hey Kevin,

My post may not have been clear. My meaning was that there are 3 of us on the Judge Acquisition Committee. In agreeing to judge for another club it is nice if they extend you the courtesy of doing the same. I think ultimately most do this, but it is easier to get a confirmation if you ask them within the same conversation.

My answer to your poll is no more than 2 by the way.

I try to limit it to two - one in the fall and one in the spring.
Always works out to be more because I am such a nice guy and a sucker for a grown man crying on the phone.

The past couple of years I've been doing about 4 or 5, but for some reason this year I'm slated for 7.

Usually it's 3 or 4 HRC, along with a couple AKC. But I couldn't turn down the chance to go to New York and meet Dan's group of fine specimens in the judging ranks. :wink:

I'm looking forward to that Shaynster Seminar on NFRA's finer points. Hehhehhehheh :lol: Plus bending an elbow or two. :roll:

UB...also looking forward to meeting some of the RTF Nor'Easters.

I feel that two is plenty plus I feel I should volunteer to do a minor for neighboring club every year. Something I
feel fairly strong about considering
how much bitching goes on about inexperienced derby/Q judges.
Also it's a good way to instill your philosophy on a mind full of judging mush so that when they are the big guy/gal with the book we don't have a topic on RTF saying how stupid they are or at least have a good reason for how stupid they are.

This year I'm judging 4 and chairing one.Too much. next year I might take off from judging and run my dogs.And chair the one test. we only get to run 4 tests this year. Ideally I'd like to judge one test a year.
