Judging Clinic – Nov 25, 2016

There will be a judging clinic on Friday November 25th at Coyote Rock Gym which will be run by Sue Carkner one of the OCF’s very experienced Judges.  The clinic will run from 7-9pm

The clinic is for those new volunteers who would like to learn to judge — and hopefully able to help at the comp on Saturday or Sunday—or any other competition. If you have already judged in the past and would like a “refresher” you are also more than welcome to attend the clinic.

Please let us know if you plan on attending so we can keep track of numbers. 
Please email Lorraine Winger at


ATTENTION :  A, Junior and Open Competitors

With the new format this season for Local Competitions this provides you a chance to “give back” and get involved in volunteering. This can be done at the local comps on Sundays when the younger age groups (B, C and D) are competing. You can also check off some of your *High School Volunteer Hours if that is something that will also help you!! (*Please bring the required forms that you need or requirements that are necessary with you so that we can help you achieve your volunteer hours easily)
Please see the information above with regards to a judging clinic that the OCF is running. If you want to judge you must have attended one of the judging clinics that we offer or have offered in the past prior to judging at a competition.
There are lots of other volunteer positions that are required if you do not want to judge. Please let us know if you are interested in volunteering in any capacity by emailing
