Default Referee or judge in pattern??

Hi,
We were discussing the English language while having breakfast. We know, that in court it is either one judge or a panel of judges. But when it comes to the sport F3A or pattern if you like, is it then more than one judge (panel of judges) or is it a panel of referees ?

Wikipedia says;

referee is the person of authority, in a variety of sports, who is responsible for presiding over the game from a neutral point of view and making on the fly decisions that enforce the rules of the sport, including sportsmanship decisions such as ejection. The official tasked with this job may be known, in addition to referee, by a variety of other titles as well (often depending on the sport), including umpire, judge, arbiter, arbitrator, linesman, commissaire, timekeeper, touch judge or Technical Official (by the International Olympic Committee).

I should like to know what is being used in American English and English English.
Thank you!
Best regards

Ah, but does a referee judge the quality of play (other than perhaps sportsmanship) assigning a numerical value to it which ultimately determines win or loss?  Also, are our judges peers or are they performing another activity altogether as referees?  Just some random thoughts as the coffee kicks in (now to the showers for game day - flying Pocono this weekend - off to meet the refs LOL).  Cheers!

Hi Dag,
Judges - they operate according to the 'Judging' Guide found in the Sporting Code.

The Competition Director and or the Flight line Director are our referees.

Brian, your answer seems to fit the definition that wikipedia is writing. What you are writing do have clear responsibility shared by referee and the judges.
This is a good clarification from you.
Thanks
Best regards

Depending on the scores I get they are either:
.
1) A great group of guys that I'd like to party with . . .
.
or
.
2) A bunch of jerks who couldn't find their way out of a wet paper sack with a machete . . .

We call them judges.

A judge determines your penalty in court.

Referees don't typically quantify the level of a penalty, they more or less enforce a predetermined set of rules and penalties.

Refereeing seems more objective, judging seems more subjective. Just a thought.
