On the exam the 4 beers are scored by at least 2 proctors, they are NOT allowed to change their scores.  A consensus score is determined after they have evaluated the beer and this is the score that you are compared to.  This consensus score is evaluated by the exam directors and if needed (not often) it is adjusted.  The purpose of the proctors is to taste teh beers and explain what they tasted so the scorers can evaluate how well your perceptions compare to what is in the beer.  All of this is evaluated to come up with your tasting score.

my beef with this is when i took my exam (4 months ago) the 2 proctors on our Old Ale beer gave the beer a 13 and a 30.  If the two proctors can't be closer than 17 points and they are not allowed to change there scores how are we, as examinees, being fairly judged on that beer? seems like the two proctors would be able to come closer on scores than that, i don't think the consensus score was adjusted.
i do have to say in regards to getting our scores back, ours came back fairly quickly, 3 months, so props to the BJCP graders for that.
lots of good (and helpful) discussions going on.

someone i talked to at the conference said it was going to be the town and country, but that could have just been a rumor.

Welcome to the great state of Idaho! If you ever have the chance drive up to McCall, Idaho, I grew up there and it's a beautiful place to visit.  I currently live in Minnesota but get back there to see my parents whenever I get the chance, I've made the drive from here to there WAY too many times, ND and the western half of Montana are boring to drive though!
Anyways, I'm glad the move went well, good luck setting up your brewery!!

Congrats to Gary and Erin!! 

I also had a baby girl on the 19th (my second girl), and my husband was brewing two days later.

Rest up, they turn 2 before you know it, and then it's all over!  :)
