I also believe table captains are given sheets to mark off and check to make sure they don't get the same boxes twice. Maybe that only happens with certain KCBS reps, I'm not sure.
What you said and what I said are not mutually exclusive.
Also, and I am not going to do the statistical anlysis here, but in general one might want to be careful when pointing out tings like "GC never hit table 3, and table 3 was the TOD (table o' death)". There can be a causal relationship there, POTENTIALLY.
