May I suggest that you try out AACE. Most of our shows are in NJ a few in CT. We are a a very freindly group, have loads of fun and you'll never find a judge judging more than once in a weekend. We have 8 ring shows, 4 on sat and 4 on sun. You can check out their website here
We used to show in TICA, and while we have alot of friends that do, we chose not to anymore because alot of things just didn't make sense to use and the politics were a bit unnerving.
We switched to AACE several years ago, and began to arduous task of trying to get Munchkins accepted for Championship, which we were able to do. Not long aftyer, (about a year), TICA finally did. At the present time I am a specialty judge for AACE.
Hope we can see you there!
