[concours] Licensed Judges

How does one become a “Licensed Judge” in JCNA? The JCNA Web Site is not
very helpful in answering this.

Thanks in advance.

First, You must obtain a copy of the official JCNA Judge’s
Manual from JCNA publications via Charles Morgan (410-
242-73120 in Baltimore, MD.
Second, Study its contents and become aware of how it is
indexed by section and subject.
Third, Have the Head Judge of an affiliated JCNA regional club
administer the written test obtained from Jack Stamp
(316-681-3045) in Wichita, KS
Fourth, Attend annually at least one Judge’s Seminar but on by
the Head Judge of an affiliated JCNA regional club.

John,
The current JCNA licensing requirement only involves undergoing formal
training at the JCNA club level and then being certified by the club’s
Chief Judge following some (locally determined) amount of practice or
“apprentice” judgings.

Persons who have been certified by their clubs will have the letter “J”
beside their JCNA membership number on their JCNA membership cards.

Ch. Judge, San Diego Jaguar Club

Harold, Jerry: Thanks for the replies. I will contact Mr. Morgan for a
copy of the manual and proceed from there.

Dick: So no formal written test is necessary? Does the Chief Judge need to
be a Licensed Judge?

Dear John, a judges school is held on the local level with current judges,
the chief judge and the intended judges. This is normally done once a year
with the intended’s request to be put on the schooling roster to be held
before the clubs concour. Hope this explains it. Regards, Peter L. Fino, Jr.

John,
Contact the concours chairman for the first event you are going to attend.
He should be scheduling a meeting “no less than two weeks prior to the
concours” to train and test judges.
It’s nice to see some traffic on this concours list. I thought I was the
only one on it.
Regards,
John Testrake

John,
The current rules don’t specifically state that the Chief Judge must be
licensed; however, it can be reasonably assumed that he or she would be.
The Chief judge has fairly extensive responsibilities and could not be a
good instructor without having done everything he’s recommending to both
the old and new judge’s on the team.

For general JCNA Concours Judges’ information:
The Chairman of Judge’s Qualifications Committee, Jack Stamp, recently
resigned his position. His replacement has not as yet been designated by
the new JCNA President, Eric Schumaker.

If someone wants a copy of the JCNA Judge’s test, I would be willing to
scan and send one. The test is a basic examination of whether you can
find your way through parts of the rule book and understand some
elements of the prescribed judging procedures. It has absolutely NO
questions relating to a person’s knowledge of any model Jaguar.

Specific knowledge of what may be correct or incorrect for a given model
Jaguar can be acquired by extensive personal research of both official
and unofficial Jaguar publications, by observing as many “good/original”
examples as possible, and by talking to people who have personally
restored, shown, and judged them.

For the last few years, clubs were encouraged to use the tests, but the
completed tests themselves were no longer to be forwarded to the Judge
Qualifications Chairman. Chief Judges were to notify the Judge
Qualification Chairman of persons they certified as having met the
criteria to be judges and also indicate when and where the club had
conducted it’s annual judge’s training/school(s).

I expect that the judge qualification process may be redefined and/or
revised when a new chairperson is designated.

Corrections and clarifications are welcomed.

Hi, John -

In the DVJC we hold a series of judge training sessions prior to our annual
Concours, using our experienced folks and the JCNA concours rules to help
newcomers along. On Concours day, we try to have a team of at least three
judges per car, including at least one experienced judge. In general, so
far, so good! This list is proving to be invaluable as to details (prior
controversies concerned the proper ‘new’ tires for the Series # XKE, as the
original ones are no longer available (replicar tuies do not have the
appropriate speed rating!), and the use of the red-“Lucas” ring spark plug
caps).

Good question for the JCNA Annual Meetring (just concluded!).

Good luck; let me know what else you find.

Hi, Dick -

Time to formalize, I guess! Please scan/send the test, and consider
submitting it for posting it on the Jag-Lovers site (if that doesn’t
violate copyright).

Thanks!
