We've judging about as long as this guy, and in the beginning we never got a shirt, that is a more recent thing. Judges usually got some sort of bag. And we do appreciate them. Hey you volunteered, and you knew up front, there was no compensation. For judges we should be there to serve, not be served. For us the fellowship with old friends(teams and judges) and making new friends is more important than any shirt. Shirt/merchandise sells help to fund the contest because they don't get organized and run for free. Many contests, if not most are supporting some sort of charity.
It is much better to give than receive.
