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?

Ted,

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

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.

It will be an valuable experience.
I am sure they will go into, among a host of other things, advice on setting up marks :wink:

"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....

Biggest airport in the First State is in Dover, but if you ain't in a C-5A or some other wing waxer bird don't bother looking for a flight there.

I'm interested in attending the Judges Clinic, but the prospect of a 750 mile roundtrip weekend by myself is a bit daunting.

If anyone in the Carolinas or Southern VA is considering the clinic and would like to ride with me or if you have room for a passenger, please send me a PM.

Thanks,


Jeff

Don Driggers, one of the panelists, is to be the judge from the Eastern Time Zone for the 2006 National Amateur. Potential contestants have an opportunity to get Don's perspectives on judging firsthand by attending!
