Experienced judges who have attended many Judges’ Workshops are welcome to come to the 9:00 –10:00 portion or start the day at 10:00.
Everyone attending should download and review the Judge’s Instructions, even if you’ve judged before, so it is fresh in your mind.
Please RSVP by email so we have a count and can set the room up. Also please include any any questions, concerns, ideas, suggestions, etc.
