Been trimming before comps for 5 years and haven't had a KCBS rep or Meat inspector question pretrimmed stuff. Just the HD.
The HD cannot get involved unless you are feeding the public, in that case they would need to do a full inspection. They have no right to get involved with a KCBS event.
I pre trim when possible and have never had a problem.
