    An SCD friend, who is in charge of all SCD aspects of next October's Seaside 
    Scottish Games in Ventura (CA) and who is not a Strathspey member, has asked 
    me to make this request of you for information and/or suggestions:
    "I was wondering if you could do me a favor & take this question to the 
    mountain of wisdom that is the Strathspey server.  I'd like to know if there is 
    some RSCDS standard for putting forth an adjudication & where the information 
    might be found...or if anyone has suggestions, helpful hints, or dire warnings of 
    what NOT to do."
    By means of a bit of explanation on my part, it has been decided for the 
    first time to have as one feature of the Games activities an SCD adjudication.  
    Classes and dem. teams have been invited to make a presentation of one J-R-S 
    each for an adjudicator (who is a local teacher emeritus).  This is not a 
    contest; it is simply for the purpose of eliciting comments of both commendation and 
    constructive criticism for the presenting group.

    At the Pleasanton Games there are three classes for the adjudication:
    	Dem Team
    	Social Class
    	Youth Class
    The adjudicator should be aware of the status of each team and adjust their
    comments accordingly. Having been a dancer at several adjudications and
    remembering that the purpose of the adjudication is to have an enjoyable
    time and improve the level of dancing and teamwork - I would hope that your
    teacher starts and ends each evaluation with positive comments and does not
    over dwell on problems or negatives.
    If you have a youth class in your area I would strongly encourage them to
    participate - it is fun and most audiences appreciate their effort.
