Just found this on another forum...
I was lucky enough to judge this contest for the first time ever since I joined KCBS 6 years ago now. I have tried to judge this contest every year and never gotten any response until this year. I am also a very seasoned master judge having just judged my 74th KCBS contest. I'll only add a few points and then move on.
1. When the rep asked all the uncertified judges to raise their hand to be counted there were so many he told them to put their hands down and then called for the certified judges to raise their hand because there was far, far less to count. I would estimate maybe 20 certified judges in the room.
2. There were so many uncertified judges in the room that did not pay attention to KCBS rules. I discovered couples sitting together. More than several uncertified judges playing with their cell phones while judging. Half way through judging, the rep announced that they ran out of drinking water to judge with and the entire water system in the building was broken and shut down. That meant that no bathrooms were available other than outside at best. I thought at one point it would turn into the New Orleans superdome/Hurricane Katrina incident for a spell. Thankfully, it did not and the water was working again about the time brisket came in.
