WEGO Hall Of Fame
People often do not realize the complexity and amount of work that goes into successfully judging an event. At a large event, the judging process works something like this:
1st - A "pre-classifier" arrives for the beginning of setup. This person does an initial classification of the cars as they move-in.
2nd - The judges then must seperate the registration forms in whatever manner is deemed appropriate by the judging staff. It is common to seperate by class to create the organization necessary to successfully judge an event.
3rd - The judges then must thoroughly judge each entry. This includes using the WEGO score sheet. The judging process consists of a thorough examination of anything available for to the judges eye (exhibitors will not score points for their undercarriage or hydraulic setup if they are not visible). Detail plays a major role in the process, including completeness of paint (door jams, engine compartment, etc), interior, craftsmanship, ability of body modifications to actually function, etc. After careful examination the judges then score each category on a "best possible" system, only awarding maximum points in a given category to a car that has achieved perfection in that particular category.
4th - After judging, scores must be tallied and an initial count is then made of trophies required.
5th - The initial count is compared to the actual trophies on hand. If necessary, classes will then be combined or split up at the judges discretion.
6th - Next, the final results list must be made with the winners. This is the list the announcer uses to announce the winners at the trophy presentation.
7th - Finally, the special award and best of show winners must also be finalized and placed on the final results list.
8th - The judges must then wait through the trophy presentation to answer questions after the show.
