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 for geographic groupings of individual CLC Regions. This Workshop is being conducted for the Central Regions to prepare judges for the 2017 Grand National.


It is six-plus hours of training, including classroom instruction and the actual judging of cars.

Classroom Instruction

will cover:
  • Judging Foundation—Rationale, Philosophy of Judging,Judging Standard
  • Entrant and Judge responsibilities
  • New judging procedures to be used in 2017
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.


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.
