JudgeCast #287 – Judge Compensation

Happy New Year! It’s a time for celebration and resolutions for the new year. In this episode Bryan and Charles are joined by Brook Gardner-Durbin (@TheBG_D) to discuss the factors that go into your decisions for fair compensation at the various levels. Is judging your hobby, career, or side hustle? What is the complexity of the event you are going to be working? What is considered fair? Where do you have the ability to negotiate? As we discuss issues around pay, just a reminder: We are not lawyers or CPAs. We are glorified donkeys pushing a ball around the pasture. Consult your local, state, or federal laws before acting on any of our barnyard braying.


JudgeCast #117 – TO Talk with Turner

We have our very own April Fool on, L3 and RC Justin Turner, to talk about how to talk to a TO when you’re new in town. We cover such topics like how to show you add value to the TO, how to ingrain yourself as the judge for that TO’s store, compensation, and what to do if they store already has a judge. These are the types of things that apply to more than just judging at the store level!

We also cover some of the changes from the newest IPG. Listen and let the smooth sounds of Florida crickets put you to sleep as Justin Turner explains it all.
