Vince - I spoke with one of the judges after the comp and she said it was 65% CBJ. 35% were VIP's from the town of Holbrook - Approx 2 non CBJ's per table!
Tucson Sam's had 3 new judges per table. My table was the only table with only 2 brand new judges. But we also had 2 judges that it was only their second contest judging... so if you wonder why scores are crazy.
To just got out of the first round is the hardest at Sam's and a lot of good teams get burned by I experienced judging. No thank you.
