in the judging tent , how many places in each catagory are announced? is it just first, second, and third, or do they keep going? also, can a team win with consecutive fourth place finishes in all four catagorys if the firsts and seconds in each catagory don't score well on anything else. thanks.

Hi,

Nothing is announced in the judging tent. The winners are announced in the awards ceremony, some hours after judging has ended. And some contests its 1 thru 3, others 1 thru 5, and others 1 thru 10, etc..

Grand and Reserve Champion is determined (in KCBS and FBA) by total points in the 4 categories, so its not based on the placement in each category. So the answer to your question is yes.

also, you never know who will be reserve champion and grand champion until its announced. Because of the fact its an accumulation of all scores... I have placed in all 4 categories and ended up 3rd overall a couple of times now, and the reserve and grand champions place 1st or 2nd in 2 categories and score real high in both... I was scratching my head until I saw the score sheets...

"Roger" to all the info above.

Really huge events can pay (or award) to 15th even.
Mobile had 83 teams and did that.
