For me, initially, I wanted to get a better idea of how good (or bad) my Q really was. Friends and family are reliable benchmarks but they won't always tell you straight up if something is amiss or lacking. They don't want to offend nor risk getting cut off. Competing has really given me the opportunity to travel, meet new friends and share in the sucess and disappointments of competing.
