Below are the competition rankings and rewards following the 24-hour time period allowed by rules for judgement call disputes, protests, and challenges. We invite KBF Members to view details and photos of this event at TourneyX and to call to KBF Management’s attention any errors in scoring or deductions, which will not result in changes to ranking and rewards but will be useful in judge coaching and reviews and in refinement of KBF tools and procedures.
