My kids have not yet experienced an "excess glue" rejection, so no direct experience there, but my instinct is that regardless of what is accepted by the judges at weigh-in, you want to minimize excess glue anyway; it's adding weight to your structure without a purpose. I'm guessing that if the blob is AT the joint, you're ok. If the glue encompasses (sorry, had to use that word) the perimeter of the piece of balsa it's gluing, I'd think they won't accept that.
