I thought this was dead. So according to ronaldm it seems like the judges in the Uk are good because their are less nubs. Right? Now here is an Idea that could help for all the 10 year olds. What if the Organizers had best judge of the day awards? It wouldn't be a reg, but if you are older, you will follow it better and if you are younger, motivation can help. Do you think this could help it at all? I think it could because it is mostly the young judges that screw up.
What about the Nebraska judges?The judges at most Ohio comps are actually pretty good, and if you tell them they made a mistake they are always nice about it and fix it!
