IDK about KCBS but as a judge with the PNWBA it is standard practice the the head judge will give an hour refresher course at EVERY event. This way there is no question that the judges have been informed as to what is kosher, what is not, what to look for ect.
That being said. the scoring system for PNWBA vs KCBS is very different. I believe the system the PNWBA has is much more fair, that's just my two cents but. There it is,,,

the table had 2 judges with over 30 comps, myself (22), 2 others in the teens and one with 5 comps.
he said judge both samples and only score the best entry.
i have been instructed to judge both and average the scores.
nothing in the cbj handbook on how to handle it.
