Requirement to judge WC/WCX?

What level of experience does a judge need to judge a WC and a WCX? I read through the very long list of rules for hosting a WCX and it sounds like any field trial judge is eligibile. Are hunt test judges allowed to judge either a WC or WCX as well? I'm still very new to field work though and barely understand all the different stages of field trials.

It can get a little complicated if other breeds are allowed to run at the WC/WCX test. I think the rules for Goldens were changed a couple of years ago to Hunt Test judges having to be Senior level or higher, or if specifically approved by the board of the GRCA.

I hadn't even thought of that. I'm trying to do more research for a goldens only event next year. It gets so complicated between finding judges, and a location that will be available during duck nesting season. So a Senior level hunt test judge works for a WCX?

Yup!

Those cotton picken Tollers include Blind retrieves in their tests so it can get a little complicated finding judges.

Thank you so much! I really hope we're able to get this event together in time. It would be so nice to get more dogs a field/retriever title.

It is complicated for judging. I copied and pasted from GRCA's website:


The requirements for each set of judges for the WC shall be an aggregate of three qualification points. One point may be earned for each of the following:


1. Any judging assignment at an AKC licensed field trial or AKC sanctioned Open or Amateur assignment.
2. Any judging assignment at an AKC licensed hunting retriever test.
3. Any TWO judging assignments at a GRCA WC/WCX test. Only one point may come from this category.


The requirements for each set of judges for the WCX shall be an aggregate of three qualification points. One point may be earned for each of the following:


1. Any judging assignment at an AKC licensed field trial or AKC sanctioned Open or Amateur assignment.
2. Any judging assignment in the Senior or Master stake at an AKC hunting retriever test.
3. Any TWO judging assignments at a GRCA WC/WCX test. Only one point may come from this category.

The rules are stated a little differently from the last time I looked at them. Can a 3 point judge still carry a non pointed judge?

ArchersMom, I believe the Seattle Golden club will be having a WC/X early in Sept. this year.

Yes, EGRC is hosting.
It's not up on the website yet but I believe it will be the first weekend in September.

The judges together have to have 3 points. Two times judging a WC/X and you get one point. But you can only earn one point this way.
