Yes Ray is retired. Sad news to dbdrag Canada as he will be missed in this sport. He will be hosting some single point shows at his stores but thats all. James is a certified judge, so he can do the multi`s out west.

Meh, dbdrag is kinda dying in the east.. less and less support every year.. not many shops want to pay lots of $$ to bring a judge from the US in to host a show with a low turnout.. I guess thats the way the cookie crumbles..
