Re: Reviewing scoresheets
I don't know what the policy is for the official sheets. The procedure at the Oregon championships was that the team is provided their own copy of the blank scoresheet for each round. At the conclusion of the round, the ref goes over the scoring with the team as he marks his official sheet, and the team enters the scores on their own duplicate sheet. The team signs the official sheet, and leaves with their own record.

We were also very careful about discussing the ball game status with the ref team for the other table before marking the sheet, and before either side was reset. With four refs watching each match, at least one of them always had a clear ruling on what happened.
The ball game wasn't fun from the ref's standpoint.
