Gimmee, gimmee, gimmee.
I am not judging as much as I once did because of the increased cost of transportation and lodging.
Lodging for a judge? You ask? Yes, lodging.
I like to show up Friday afternoon/evening and "hang out" with the teams and get to know them. It helps to be a better judge, as far as I am concerned.
I also like to stay for the awards so that I can help my friends (new ones that I might have just met the night before and old ones as well) celebrate their victories or drown their sorrows.
Sometimes that can lead to driving "disabilities" and this demands another night of lodging.
