We always called top ten in categories here in Pleasant Hill but I like to hear myself talk so much that I called top 20 this past April! Actually, it was because we were up to 77 teams and top ten gets 67 of those teams not getting a call every category. Also, there were two teams in the 11 to 20 range that I had reason to want them to get calls. One I believe was a first call ever and one was to get the opportunity to tell the entire awards attendees what this team (E & D's BBQ) had done for Tammy and me in Mason City, Iowa last year after we got blown away in the storm while they walked up front for their award. Oh and it didn't hurt that after Todd took three straight first places, that we got to call him for 14th in brisket! LOL!
