Ford, I think that you are counting the judges by their CBJ#, right? In the past you got a KCBS# when you joined up and then if & when you took the class, you got a separate CBJ#, so that you had two
different numbers from the KCBS. At least that's what I've been told.
When I joined (and took the class at the same time) last year, I was given the same
number for both. I'm thinking that they changed the numbering system for judges sometime before April 2007, thus leading to the current "high number" of CBJs.
If I'm wrong on this, I hope one of the BoD will chime in.
