Judging for the IJKS starts in about two hours. Seems I did not bring the appropriate attire to Judge in so I will let you know what happens.

I actually have more than one suit and tie now. I didn’t forget it, I just didn’t realize I would need it. I was the only one without a suit.

I was allowed to Judge yesterday and it was a lot of fun. There were Tosai entries from 12u up to 36bu in six different sizes. The group I was in Judged 18bu A and B and 12bu A. We started with all of the Judges nominating their choice for GCA and GCB. After both were chosen, and the winners of each were chosen, we had a final vote on which of the two would be the overall Champion. Two years ago a Beni Kikokuryu was awarded the highest honor as it beat out a GCA Kohaku in the final vote. This year the GCA Champion, which was a Showa, prevailed. I voted for the GCB as I thought it was a superior Koi.
The next step was to go through all of the Koi, in our size groups and pick the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners for all of the varieties. At this show they are called Gold, Silver and Bronze winners. When all of the judges completed this task for their size groups then we all together to vote for best in size and best in variety.

Cameras and cell phones were not allowed during the Judging but today I went back and took pictures of all the major winners and a few pictures of some of the Gold winners.
