With that said the nearby judge or 2 time judge will still have issues but if the rep keeps them to one per table then it really doesn't matter as their potential low score will be dropped. Overall the new scoring sheet is a vast improvement...good job KCBS and everyone who took countless hours to make it happen!
There was also a "money" table at wellsville. 3 of the 4 category winners came off of table 8. I'm guessing we won't be arguing to have those judges reeducated!
