Soliciting feedback on new judging applicant - Karen Hough
« on: February 22, 2014, 11:24:54 AM »
Hi Group,

We have a new judging applicant, Karen Hough from Blue Ridge, VA.  As always, we are asking for feedback, both positive and otherwise.
You can respond to me at

Here are some things to consider in your responses:

Are they polite, considerate, friendly to everyone at a trial?

Do they treat their dogs fairly and with respect and always compete in a sportsmanlike manner, as a representative of the sport should be?

Are they interested in other competitorsí successes and achievements?

Are they willing to jump in to help keep trials moving even without being scheduled as a volunteer?

Are they a strong supporter of NADAC, its rules and philosophy, both at a trial and in other areas?

Are they willing and able to knowledgeably discuss NADAC rules and philosophy with fellow exhibitors when asked?

Do they have the ability to handle difficult people with diplomacy and effectiveness?

Do they embrace and support the evolution of NADAC?

Do they have the ability to mentally concentrate for long periods of time and be able to make split second decisions?

Are they physically capable of being on their feet from the measuring of dogs in the morning until the last dog finishes running that day, while maintaining mental focus and a good attitude?

Do they have a good knowledge of how a trial runs, as a score keeper, timer, scribe?
