Judges' Reports

We recently conducted a sweep of all remaining queries on show reports in 2005 and, fingers crossed, it looks like we have cleared the decks of what we had received. So if you see an odd one from 2005 in the next issue, it’s just a mopping-up operation.

That leaves us with 2006 and of course our new departure with a split system. We know judges and exhibitors like to get their reports in as quickly as possible. We have improved dramatically over the old days when you may be waiting over three months for publication on a regular basis.

Judges are allowed up to four weeks by GCCF to submit their reports and as a combination of the speedy judges e-mailing to us, and our new section, we are rapidly improving this turnaround. The more judges who send in by email, the better.

We have refined the system in-house and you only have to look in the E-MAIL EXTRA to see what we mean. Again, however, we are going to have a couple of issues where we play catch-up and sweep through any remaining reports from early 2006 as well as banging on with the e-mailers.

Watch this space.
