GridView UpdateParameters ReadOnly Issue

I have an Update parameter called "Weekjudge" which corresponds to one of the columns in my GridView".  I need to know the value of this field when the user does an edit so I can pass it back to the server to complete the update.  I'm able to make it work if I set the BoundField's ReadOnly Property to "False".  Problem is, I don't want to allow the user to edit it in the GridView.  In fact, I would prefer to not show the date associated with that field to the user.

I've tried:

(1) setting the BoundField's ReadOnly Property to "true"
(2) setting the BoundField's Visible Property to "false"
(3) setting the GridView's DataKeyNames to "WeekJudge"

   Unfortunately I've not been able to come up with a solution.

What do I try now?
<asp:GridView 

        ID="gridJudge"  

        AllowSorting="false" 

        AllowPaging="false" 

        DataKeyNames="WeekJudge"

        Runat="server"

        DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"

        AutoGenerateColumns="False" 

        AutoGenerateEditButton="true"

        BorderStyle="Solid" 

        BorderColor="Black" 

        HeaderStyle-BackColor="Black" 

        HeaderStyle-ForeColor="White" RowStyle-BorderColor="Gray" RowStyle-BorderStyle="Solid" RowStyle-BorderWidth="1px"

        >

        <Columns>

          <asp:BoundField ReadOnly="true" HeaderText="Edit" DataField="Edit" SortExpression="Edit" />

          <asp:BoundField ReadOnly="true" HeaderText="Period Type" DataField="PeriodType" />

          <asp:BoundField ReadOnly="true" HeaderText="Period" DataField="PeriodName" />

          <asp:BoundField ReadOnly="true" HeaderText="Bookings" DataField="Bookings" DataFormatString="{0:#,###}" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Right"/>

          <asp:BoundField ReadOnly="true" HeaderText="Commits" DataField="Commits" DataFormatString="{0:#,###}" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Right"  />

          <asp:BoundField ReadOnly="true" HeaderText="Judges" DataField="Judges" DataFormatString="{0:#,###}" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Right" />

          <asp:BoundField ReadOnly="true" HeaderText="Subtotal" DataField="SubTotal" DataFormatString="{0:#,###}" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Right" />

          <asp:BoundField HeaderText="Judgment" DataField="Judgment" DataFormatString="{0:#,###}" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Right" />

          <asp:BoundField ReadOnly="true" HeaderText="Total" DataField="Total" DataFormatString="{0:#,###}" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Right" />

          <asp:BoundField HeaderText="Comment" DataField="Comment" ItemStyle-Width="300px" ItemStyle-BorderColor="Gray" ItemStyle-BorderStyle="Solid" />

          <asp:BoundField ReadOnly="false" HeaderText="WeekJudge" DataField="WeekJudge" />

       </Columns>

      </asp:GridView>

      <asp:SqlDataSource 

        ID="SqlDataSource1" 

        Runat="server" 

        SelectCommandType="StoredProcedure"

        SelectCommand="spJudgeUpload"

        UpdateCommand="spJudgeEdit"

        UpdateCommandType="StoredProcedure"

        ConnectionString="<%$ appSettings:EtgConnectionString %>"

        >

        <UpdateParameters>

            <asp:Parameter Type="String" Name="jUserId" DefaultValue='bsalle'/>

            <asp:Parameter Type="String" Name="WeekJudge" />

            <asp:Parameter Type="Double" Name="Judgment" />

            <asp:Parameter Type="String" Name="Comment" />

        </UpdateParameters>

    </asp:SqlDataSource>

I used the style property to hide the column.
<style type="text/css">

    .hiddencol

    {

        display:none;

    }

    .viscol

    {

        display:block;

    }

</style>

...

<asp:BoundField DataField="WeekJudge" itemstyle-cssclass="hiddencol" />
