I think that there may be differences depending on region, but here on Long Island we can reasonably expect a 25% 'no show' rate on judges, regardless of communication.
I can only think of two ways that the number of 'no shows' can be driven down. The first is to keep meticulous records and black ball them from future events and the second is to require an up front fee that they get back when they show up.
I would think that in areas where BBQ is fairly new, the problem would be greater. I assume that the traditional hot-beds of BBQ have better attendance rates.
