Membership Secrets to Judging Seminar
This one day seminar is a great way to get the finer details of how the judges score each maneuver and how you can improve your scoring.
It was great to have Bub Poplin here on March 5th, 2023 to teach our members about the ins and outs of scoring and what the judges are looking for.
Thank you to those that came out
