EMMA Argentina ready to go

EMMA Argentina held it´s first National Judge training
end of June supported by international Head Judge Francesco Richichi who flew
from Italy to Buenos Aires.

19 attendees, mostly from Buenos Aires, but also some
coming from other provinces (Santa Fe, La Pampa and Cordoba), the furthermost
being 700km away. The training was supported by some of the local sponsors who
showed up to see how training was going. The event was held in the city of
Lanus, inside the Chemical Guys workshop, who is also one of EMMA Argentina´s sponsors.
Thanks also to Focal, who set us up with a nice set of reference monitors to
listen to the EMMA CD.

On Saturday, all the theories about what is EMMA,
about judge behavior, categories and classes, and also we covered all judgement
aspects about SQ, ESPL, ESQL, Installation and Racing were trained.

Sunday was reserved for doing all practical stuff for
the training. Francesco Richichi took a small test of what the audience saw on Saturday
to everybody, while German Schulmeister explained on a car how to judge
installation in a vehicle. (Tramadol) Then all the attendees got to judge installation on
another car by their own.  There were also 2 cars for all new judges to
evaluate in SQ, so they all could hear and understand how to judge them, as
they sounded very different. Finally, the group did some ESQL and ESPL judging
all together on one car, so new judges got their hands on with the judging

Afterwards the certificates were given to the new
coming judges, followed by an intense conversation about what all should do
together to help grow Emma in Argentina. A great step into a bright future with
a great team.
