We actually implemented a "find me a mentor" and "find me a judge" service on the WA Homebrewers website. You typed in your location, and it would find the folks near you who were willing to bring you in on their brewday, or BJCP judges who would be willing to help you troubleshoot a problematic beer.
I heard it was used a few times, but not many. Too bad. We (and by that I mean Peter Twigg) put a lot of effort into that.
 and my offer to do either still stands. Even if you want to mail me some beers, I'll give you an honest evaluation. For free.
[edit2] Also, the BJCP web site has 3 lists of Proctors right on the web site (Beer, Mead, & Written). Those folks tend to be the "volunteeriest" of the BJCP volunteers, ie, the written proctor list is made up of folks that are such gluttons for punishment in the name of beer, they are even willing to GRADE exams.
