This is a large and long event and we thank you all for your desire to make it great event as well.

We will be at the

Cobb Galleria Centre, Atlanta
Halls C&D

The Staff/Judge Hotel is extremely close to the venue

Renaissance Waverly Hotel- Cobb Galleria

We will start at 8AM Thursday (not Friday) July 27th for the grinders. Some of you will be released after to return for the later events that evening. We will have the judge schedule for Thursday and Friday ready prior to the event for your knowledge.

Mike Guptil is Head Judge of US Nationals. Jason Ness is Head Judge the JSS Championship.
Cari Foreman is scorekeeper US Nationals. Didier Monin is scorekeeper for JSS. Steve Port of Legion Events will be managing side-events. He will have a judge assigned to coordinate judge staff for the events each day. We fully expect to rotate nearly all the judges between the events, so expect to work a day on each event and another at side-events.

Judge dinner is planned for Saturday evening (when the Game of the Year is going). As we must man side-events I’ll be asking for volunteers to stay behind (I’ll bring something extra for these judges) before having to assign judges.

There are 50+ judges attending. Please take time to talk with judges from different areas and learn how things are different elsewhere. If you are seeking advancement at this show or in coming months I encourage you to speak to higher-level judges in attendance for input and encourage them to officially make the comments in the Judge Center.

Anyone not familiar with the Judge Center should login before this show ( as you’ll be expected to write reviews after. I encourage you to look over recent articles as well
