I would say the heart of the rule of ten kids is that no more than ten
brains get to work on the competition materials and solutions.  To me, I
would wonder, is this the first time your sub has been present?  If they
were present before, did they contribute to the team's ideas and solution?
  Because it's really hard to keep kids who have an idea about something
from sharing with the group, and that would break the ten kids rule (which
is different from collaboration) . If they were not present unless a team
members was absent at the last second, would they integrate well into the
core value challenge, & how would they know what lines to follow for the
skit?
   Would the tournament know? No. Is it a good idea? Unless you have less
than a ten kid crew, I don't actually think so.
IMHO,
Brandy
