Contact them soon if you want to judge - it fills up.

Southern Brethren will be competing at Plant City. We cooked it two years ago, and I judged it last year. It's a good contest. We see quite a few out of state teams - guess the colder weather runs 'em down south!!

What Dave says.

Plant City 2004 was a pivotal event for us.
I honestly think this was the first event where we started to learn "how to compete". Not necessarily "win" but focus on competing.
We were new.
This forum was newly talking about competitions. We did not have the plethora of competitors we enjoy now. So, some of us were kinda breaking new ground on the Forum.

Our "report" is here:

Funny and embarassing at the same time.

But, we survived, we walked, and we have grown since then.

Plant City is a major event down here--for sure.

Call Amy at (813) 754-3707 or email her at Amy@plantcity.org.

If you don't get through, I'd still show up. This is a pretty big event and when I showed up last year I wasn't on the list (despite two emails and a phone call)...but they will take "walk on" CBJ's over uncertified people.

Tim - forgot to tell you, I've got our registration and wristbands!! We're set - sort of, like always!

Really appreciate the offer, but just bring your favorite.
Plenty of cooler space available.
