Re: [Killietalk] Judging/Judges(Morphed from Elephant/convention/new rules)
While I'm not disinterested in becoming a judge, it just wouldn't make
sense at this point in time. I wouldn't feel comfortable judging any
classes other than SAA, Nothos, or Fundulopanchax. I have fish
entered in these classes at most shows I go to. So what would I
judge? Rivs or Aphyos? That would be amusing, and I'd probably get
lynched for picking the wrong winner. ;) I think this is probably a
similar reason why many others don't judge.
Gary- can you email me the info for the Michiana show? I might
finally make it this year.
