At Birmingham on the Saturday & Sunday, 2 sessions were held on each day for how the new Judges’ Competence Program will work. I attended on the Saturday when Jeff Horswell & Glen Dymock explained the new program and answered questions.  It was a good 2 hour session and I found it very good from being a Secretary of a breed club and a Judge and understand things a little more clearly now.
