I could not get your link to work a Vicky so I put a link to the rulebook that I have on my drive I do not know if it will work or not . BTW my NAHRA Field Test number is BORKE02.
hahaha! I forgot about the NAHRA judging nomenclature. I used to be ATKCH02. Charles Lee Atkinson was ATKCH01. I wonder if Mr. Atkinson is still with us.

One other thing that just came back to me after reading this:

Back when I ran NAHRA (1988 through 2000 or so) the Butler brothers would judge NAHRA some. I remember Pete Lamere (may he rest in peace) noticing that Bruce Butler was BUTBR01. So he jokingly called David Butler "Butbro2"

Boy that used to crack us up back in the Wisnowska at Field Test days.

I miss those days! Chris

Just so we understand.. There have been no formal rules or guidelines for this new approach. I believe it is going to be up to the participating Judges.. They are the ones who are going to be willing to give their time and expertise to answer questions..

It would be nice for you to confirm you are indeed a Judge, and what level your experience..

I personally am fine with setup discussions being brought forward for Judges comments. I think there is a Lot to learn from that.. I believe JUDGES discussing a set-up between themselves, just like on a setup day before the test/ trial, would be interesting. May show how they work through issues..



IMHO,, I believe a question should be asked, then JUDGES ONLY will give their views. Those views may be based on rules , and judging experience.. No Training discussions.

I do not believe debate from people who don’t Judge (handlers) is warranted here. State your question,,then read and learn.. Treat this as though you are attending a symposium..

The more comfortable judges feel responding,, the more information will be gained..

Judges!! Try not to get into bickering debates.. between yourselves.. There most assuredly will be differences of opinion... The RULES MAY settle those times..

Lets try to keep this civil, and a positive experience for education

The two most important words are Civility and RESPECT..



Thanks to you who have posted.

Worth a try. STRKE01 - judged 93 licensed tests, O/T/H 14 MHRs, have run all the venues. Still, I don't plan to post much. I have found that judging with an experienced person is the best judge training.
