OK one final question:

Why wouldn't score sheets be completed for the mini BOS and included in the packet that is mailed back to the entrant?  These would be higher ranked judges I presume who would provide even better feedback in a perfect world that is.......

Because there aren't score sheets done in mini-BOS or BOS rounds.  The only task is to choose 1st, 2nd, 3rd place of the best beers sent by the flight judges.
Best way to understand the process is to steward or even to judge (better yet, take the BJCP exam).  Comps generally need all the volunteers they can get.

One of the more interesthing things (beer related) I have ever seen was a BOS judging.
Especially fun when a few of the beers are yours

Is there a way to find out what the beers where that placed in 23a? If it was a Smoked Rye IPA,  Oaked Scottish Ale, or Bourbon Vanilla Imperial Porter  or some other imaginative concoction .

Difficult category to judge if you have those combinations!

Agreed. This really is the best way to understand it. Volunteer - the competition organizers will be happy to have you. Even if it's your first time.
