You are right. The idea behind this is a bit flawed. The iterative approach to Golf as used in PerlMonks goes against the idea of a tournament. Also, as chipmunk pointed out here:

We tried to make things a little easier at the actual tournament by providing a test scaffold for each hole, which the participants could use to test their code on sample input. Solving these holes is much harder without that.

My main desire was to post some well conceived and well specified Golf questions as an example of how it should be done. In retrospect I should have just posted one a day and avoided the score tabulation. I might continue like that. I'll run it past the CB later.
