This past weekend I tabulated for a local competition because someone didn't show up. I was there for the same amount of time as the judges but I got paid about $100 MORE than the judges. All I did was type the scores into the computer and sit back and watch the routines. I told my friend, who was judging, and he was PISSED. You get what you pay for. If a competition company really wants their company to go anywhere they'll look at the big picture and not how much they'll make off of every event and try to cut corners in certain areas to make sure they make enough.
