The Board of Directors has approved a comprehensive upgrading of CLC Judging. One element of that program is Judges’ Training Workshops. These in-depth Workshops are conducted to educate CLC members in the correct application of CLC judging procedures. Those who have not judged before and would like to judge at the 2019 Grand National as well as those who have judged before are encouraged to attend. It is also excellent preparation for those entering a car for judging—learn what you should do before you get to the Grand National.
WHAT IS A JUDGES’ TRAINING WORKSHOP?
It is six-plus hours of training, including classroom instruction and the actual judging of cars. Classroom Instruction will cover:
n Judging Foundation—Rationale, Philosophy of Judging,Judging Standard
n Entrant and Judge responsibilities
Practice Judging includes demonstration of the “as-new” judging standard. It also involves actually judging a potential show car followed by critique of the judging performed by workshop participants.
JUDGES’ RECOGNITION PROGRAM
A recognition program for judges has been established to recognize those who judge. Participating in a Judge’s Training Workshop will be awarded 3 or 4 points depending on each individual’s performance. More details on the Judges’ Recognition Program are provided on the CLC website.
