First, instead of handwritten score sheet and comment cards, we need to be using handheld keypads. 6 numbers go in, you go back score and type a comment. When everyone's done, rep checks to make sure there's no missing scores or comments. Rep hits a button and this all gets sent via wireless to a computer who adds up the scores in a few seconds and sorts the comment by team number. Judging done, talying scores is done also. Just need to print out the 4 categories and each teams individual scores. Under that - by category by judge - are all the comments.
I'm sure there's an app for this somewhere. With as many people with smart phones, I don't even think that KCBS would have to buy much hardware. Just have apps that are compatible with the different smart phones and/or tablets.
