I thought I'd bump this up to see how the other regions have faired...are we all done?
I judged Th/Fri/Sat in Tulsa. I believe they finished up the last few categories on Sunday.
An unfortunately-timed Tulsa Craft Beer Week really ate into the local volunteer pool, but I was impressed with the organization. The FOAM club does a nice job, and Desiree Knott is an amazing organizer.
Several judges came from Kansas, Arkansas, Missouri and Texas to help out. Gary Glass also flew out to help, which gave us a certain street cred...not as much as if we'd had Janis, but beggers can't be choosers.
I think a good time was had by all. I saw a lot of really well-filled-out scoresheets.
Once again the single best improvement to this competition was the 2nd bottle.
In review I'd be happy to send entries to Tulsa again and would judge there again, especially if they work on the local Fest scheduling to increase the volunteer pool.
any other regions/volunteers want to chime in? Things you're happy with? Areas for improvement?
