Just an observation- FWIW
In gymnastics, we used a 10 point scale and "deducted for boo-boo's".
Boo-boos were all defined in large volumes of rules and were normally clear cut. A "Fall" or "Out of Bounds" was .5. Some things were .3. Some boo-boos had a range of .1 to .3. The girls seldom made up new boo-boo's, so if you watched the routine and took good notes, it was simple to come up with a (defendable) score that would be either "in-range" or close.

Now, the big difference with judging Q is that our desires, taste, and preferences never really came into the score. "Just the facts" normally resulted in a reasonably accurate score. And we judged one or more meets per week. Literally a few thousand scores per season.

Judging Q has to be a whole different world!
"Taste" is hard to put in a rule book.
"Presentation" is hard to put in a rule book!
Etc.
You can define the limits, but it is still a human "cranking out" the score.
They have my admiration.

With no Q judging experience, the new scoring system seems to make sense. This has got to be a subjective thing at best.
That is- it will make more sense once it is adapted to and experience is built by the judges.

I am looking forward to Mulberry in October when DF and I get to say "we hope this pleases you" ---and are successful

Thanks for the input guys.

I over time believe there will a change because 6 thighs in a box is going to become average, as an example. Cooks are going to become more creative with in the confines of that box. It should be interesting.

Good example Jim. I already know that when I hit the competitions around this area next year I will put in 7 samples as rule of thumb. My mother arranged flowers and the golden rule was always odd numbers look better.

Really? Then how come "a dozen roses." is such a standard? If I gave my wife 13 - she'd think I was telling her something. il colpo di grazia :D

Just for arrangements. The roses need to come in a dozen as a standard bull**** thing.
