...this year's request for judges was similar:

"Greetings, judges. You are invited to participate in one of the most highly anticipated events in the area.  The Sasquatch Home Brew Competition attracts some of the best brewers from all around. 
                      Where: Oakshire Brewing Public House
                      When: Saturday, May 31st 9:00 am
                             
        Please join us on Saturday May 31st at 9:00 am at the Oakshire Public House, 207 Madison st, Eugene, Or for a great event for a great cause and enjoy some of the finest home brews made.  The event is AHA/BJCP sanctioned, and the entry deadline is 3/25, so get your entries in soon, and/ or register to judge at
http://www.northwestlegendsfoundation.org/homebrew.html .  Lunch will e provided, as well as judges and stewards earning admission to the festival.  We hope to see you there."

I volunteered to judge this year's, 2014 Sasquatch Homebrew Competition for this Saturday, May 31, 2014; I've e-mail the competition's organizer a few times regarding this year's event requesting general information about how many judges, and how many entries, and I haven't heard a thing. I suspect that the event coordinator is busy with more important things, at least I hope he isn't sick or something; because it's a 2 1/2 hour drive from my home to the location; I want to make sure it's worth the time and effort to me and my family.
Are you judging this year? If so, do you know any specifics about the 2014 Sasquatch Homebrew competition?
Hoppy Zymology,
Rev. Leonidas

Yes, I'm judging....first time in years.  I have no idea how many judges or entries.  We are supposed to be at the Oakshire Public House by 9 AM tomorrow with judging set to start by 10.  Feel free to send me a PM if you have other questions.
