I'm sure every bandsman has at some time complained about a result, it's part of the fun. What seems a little hard to take is when those pronouncing judgement have never themselves conducted/or played in a band of at that level. I'm sure there will be lots of names that come to mind, but why is a man, only known for conducting school bands, judging some fine championship bands in the 2nd tier of the Spring Festival? People will always argue with results but it's a easier to take when you can say, 'well, at least he's been there and done it'. I'd far rather have a 'Bob Childs' tell me where I've gone wrong then a 'Bob the Builder'. Come on organisers, surely there are more experienced (at competing at that level) adjudicators out there.
