Excellent point Bethy, When I bought Komotion from Forrest Hill (many moons ago) it was coincidence that Peter Pond was actually judging our Junior Showcase that year. It was within the 3 month period, and if I had not known and entered him, would I have been refunded my entry (probably not) and if I had shown him, boy would s#@t have hit the fan! So does everyone that has had anything to do with anyone that may judge arabians from the eastern states have to phone the committee and ask if that person is judging or not :confused: I am not including the overseas judge in this comment. I can't believe that WAAHA can make such decisions, are these points ever put to their members. And if it has been brought to light that someone in the past has contacted the judge/s then why have we, the members not been informed of this before Why punish all members for one? persons stupidity #( Oh, and I am on a Committee and have been for over 10 years, and I know exactly what is involved.
