What criteria is used to select judges?  Is there a review of their current season of adjudicating ?  Referees and umpires are chosen for WS and SB based on their grading during the year.  Is there anything similar for DCI?

World Championship Finals — Saturday, August 11

General Effect 1: Kyle Miller & Tim Ochran
General Effect 2: Caleb Rothe & Richard Saucedo
Visual Performance: Robert Solomon
Visual Analysis: Jim Sturgeon
Color Guard: Michael Turner 
Music Brass: Chester Phillips???
Music Analysis: Darrin Davis & Chris Romanowski
Field Percussion: Allan Kristensen
Chief Judge: John Phillips

 

Does anyone else find this a bit odd? We've got Albert Lo on Prelims night, Paul McGarr (eh? equally odd) on Semis, but Chester Phillips on FINALS night? Now, don't get me wrong here, Chester is a fine trumpet player, but he's a visual guy - drill writer. Yes. He's an music educator, but he & his wife are known to be visual designers / educators. 

Also, the GE panel has all the heavy hitters on Prelims night, and then scattered the rest throughout Semis & Finals. Just a very, very odd lineup. Great to see Darrin Davis join the mix.

Thoughts?  Maybe it caught me off guard not seeing Albert Lo on Finals night, but things seem off. And as it's been point out already, Jeff Prosperie is MIA too.

I didn't realize DCI has so few female judges.

Well when it comes to finals' week, female panels just can't be pushed like the all-male panels can be ;-)

Slightly off topic but is there a way to see what judges have judged what competitions over the course of this season?
