Vicky’s excellent and very diplomatic answer to a question earlier this morning
Got me thinking. When you are deciding to run and the judges listed are some you have never run under or heard of. Do you put your faith in the club that may be part of your regular circuit as picking folk similar to the folk they have picked in the past? Is a clubs reputation for past great tests good enough to enter with confidence? I ask because I have noticed over the years that the club I am a humble member of (Lake Champlain Retriever Club) seems to have a good reputation. I get comments from strangers at other tests about how much they enjoy coming up and running dogs. So to you all personally, what is more important, the reputation of the judge or the reputation of the club?Vicky Trainor said:Hey *******,
I've judged a couple of times for ******* ********. First class club!! They had good grounds, enough help and lots of hospitality for the judges and the participants.
I found that the judges they had when I was there were all "hunt test minded". Challenging tests that were set up and judged fairly.
Go and have a good time
P.S. Don't forget to take some extra money with you to join in on the Raffle at the Dinner on Saturday night.
