Maybe some areas need more CBJ classes, but in the AL, TN, GA area there are usually several times more judges apply than are needed for most of the contests. As a table capt, I've repeatedly seen new judges give 4s and 5s in appearance when the rest of the table is giving 8s and 9s. Some contests have CBJ classes and give them preference over seasoned judges. Sure most learn eventually - maybe. Equally scary are the ones who judge once or twice a year. Quality control is definitely an issue.
