OK, it’s still summer. I know we’re not thinking about another contest. We’ve got other things on our plate. NCHF is coming up, a season of change and work, and I’ve had a lot going on with a kitchen remodel that morphed into a complete downstairs rehab and keeping an eye on my Mom (92 years old, bless her heart). But let’s just say that sometimes contests aren’t the most important things in our lives.
But just a reminder, the entry deadline is October 3rd, a Saturday, at 5pm. After that, case closed. The organizer needs some time to sort and label all the entries. So, not only have them entered in the system by then, but also by then have them delivered to the drop-off locations; Reno Homebrewer or Brew Chatter.
Now, Jackie and I are hosting the judging at our house (3090 Meadowlands Dr, Sparks 8931). The dates are Thursday and Friday evenings, October 15th and 16th, at 6pm, followed by October 17th, Saturday, at 9am, followed by the Best of Show at Great Basin Victorian, on Saturday at 2pm.
Now, realizing the entries may not come in fully, which if 100% fulfilled would be about 120 entries, we may cancel some judging sessions of which I will keep you informed.
Judges, stewards, potentials, I encourage you to sign up. I want this contest to be not just another, but good fellowship and learning for us all. I have no idea how it will turn out. This is new territory (a contest in which entrants must have previously qualified). But, I hope to see you, and prepare the best experience I can.
