Let's see: Bronchitis (set in Thursady night) and a cold - lots of Cold-Eze and made it through.
Led the wrong way down a 4 lane road and had to take the medium with the travel trailer -- only screwed up the power plug (must have scared the crap out of some drivers since I went about 120 miles home before realizing I had no lights!! :D
Scoring sucked. Competition was good - met and got to smooze with HomBBQ.com (FBA Team of the Year) and Woodhouse Grill (a real up and coming team), and spent time with other teams close by. Great people!
There's got to be a way to moderate the impact of consitently and selective high/low judges - perhaps like diving just toss the high and low and average the rest. I don't know - I do know that a 10 and 6.5 on the same category is WRONG! Oh well, enough about that.
We're probably, maybe, gonna try one more. Thanks for the encouragement.
