United Kingdom Discus Show - Judging Program

Postby Dougall Stewart » Thu Aug 14, 2008 12:28 pm

Hi Everyone

Following recent conversations and lots of hard work over the last 7 years, it gives me great pleasure to announce the United Kingdom Discus Judging Program is now complete.

Discus Judges Examination are based on a formal structure of training, observe ring, mentoring and examination.

At the end of each of the subsequent years individuals will undergo an examination and be entitled to the class of

1 year - Novice Judge
2 year - Judge
3 year - Senior Judge
4 year - United Kingdom Lead Judge
5 year - International Judge

To start on this path judges must attend a live induction, they will then follow a series of training sessions online and attend real training sessions. The live training sessions will be at a sensible time and location to suit the majority.

People wishing to attend the induction session are welcome and it is open to all UK Discus Club members who are in good standing and affiliate members.

You may want to attend just to learn more about what a good fish should look like.

Or you may want to attend because you want to embark upon the full judging pathway and help out at our shows.

The choice is up to you.

The induction session will start at 6PM on Saturday the 11th October 2008 and will be held at Mill Rythe Holiday Village, 16 Havant Road, Hayling Island, Hampshire, PO11 0PB

The cost for the induction session is £25.00 and includes printed material and a one off special edition judges shirt which I KNOW will become a highly prized collectors item. There will also be a fun certification examination and those that successfully pass will be awarded certification.

Numbers are limited, all funds and donations go to the UK Discus Club and will help support future shows, education and charitable organisations.

If you would like to register please contact me at dougall@ukdiscus.com

p.s. if you are club is already affiliated with the UKDC we offer a 10% discount fee but you will need to quote your club and your club membership number.
All the best
