I did operation checks at Williamsburg in 94. Enjoyed it immensely.  If 
you've never been involved in the Concours, it's an interesting way to spend 
the day.

I was involved yesterday in Unit 6, Operations judging (though not involved 
with the Classification).

Post classification, we judged over 50 vehicles. It was about 90 deg. F. in 
the shade of a parking garage. We had the inevitable issues crop up (late 
arrivals, incomplete paperwork, etc.) but whenever an issue appeared, the 
Concours managers (Jim Diel and Don Wagner) either individually or in common 
made decisions. Any Judge was empowered to bring any issue that might affect 
the quality of the judging to Jim and Don’s attention. The goal was to 
follow the Rules…but with compassion and fairness. I think we succeeded.

Certainly, however, the Rules should updated.  Maybe starting with the 
requirement that people register properly by a certain cut off date and 
attend the Participant’s Meeting.

It is about 6:00 AM here and some judges will be at the Concours field at 
7:00 AM to do unit 6 for the late comers. The Concours will  finish at about 
4:00 PM. These folks volunteer to judge so that the event survives and CORSA 
survives. Focusing on fairness would be a nice place to start.

I’ve judged at about 10 conventions and encourage others to give it a try. 
You’ll see amazing vehicles up close and work with a group of people who 
volunteer their time in support the events that keep CORSA going.
