Default Judges Names

Do you think it's a good idea to post the list of judges names that have signed up for a event?

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

Not sure what it would accomplish and a lot more work for the organizer.

That, or an opportunity to mess with the judging pool (or worse, the perception that it's been messed with).

Not good.

I have yet to see any concrete reason against it. It's been the practice in California for years, and no harm has yet been demonstrated from it.

Honest people doing a good job have nothing to hide. I honestly can't think of another judging activity engaged in public where the identity of judges is hidden -- rose shows, the list of judges is known; dog shows, hell the judges are publicized months in advance, it's part of the draw of the event.

Somebody mentioned beer judging here the other day -- what's the practice there?

I judge (KCBS) a lot and it doesn't bother me at all.

Question for you, what would it matter if it was listed. Even if it was listed, I don't know whos Q I'm judging and you don't know who's judging your Q. At least not each entry.

I don't have a problem with my name being listed, and I don't see how it could impact the contest.

Wouldn't surprise me if this feature was one of the outputs from the new scoring/tracking system that's supposedly in the works by KCBS.

As an organizer and judge chair, the list is already made in various forms , so you would not be creating a list, just using what is already there.

On the flip side, the judges do not see the list of teams they are judging either.
The only way judges know what teams are at a contest is by observing as they are
going from parking to judging area.

Both of the essential sides of a contest, teams and judges, need to be treated equally.

I would not like to have judges see a list of the teams they are judging as it may lead to expectations before samples are even presented to them.

KCBS goes to great lengths to separate teams and judging to keep the process as fair and impartial to the cooks as it can be.

Posting judges names is a bad idea, IMHO.

the reason I asked the question is because I received my email from the promoter for the KCBS regional event in Fort Worth and according to the email the teams along with the judges are listed on his site?

just thought it was odd

The judges list and team list was also available prior to the Sam's event in Traverse City, MI. I don't see anything wrong with it because like what was already mentioned the judges don't know which team they judged and the team doesn't know which judge judged their food.

Makes no difference in my opinion.
