Fall Judging Courses

One of the mandates of the new executive is the expansion and promotion of clubs using CAPA Trained Judges to provide greater quality and consistency of results for our members. A CAPA Trained Judge is better able to provide quality and helpful comments, along with consistent scoring. CAPA Clubs will be provided with a list of Certified / Trained Judges in their Zone. We are also putting together a national list of CAPA judges to do on-line judging for our member clubs.

All CAPA Judges are required to take a course every 5 years to ensure they are keeping up to date.  CAPA has implemented a new On-line Judging system that will make hosting a competition much simpler. In order to increase the number of CAPA Trained Judges we will be increasing the number of course available across the country.

At the Edge of the Ocean by Felicity Somerset

My preference is for shorelines that are somewhat remote – certainly not highly populated by sunbathers and swimmers.
