Congrats on your first contest. Hope you had fun. Getting a call the first time out is great - we barely avoided getting DQ'd in our first contest
It's 190 on the pork for slicing, by the way. 180 will be kinda tough.
I am heading to Kansas City for the Royal, but Greenfield, MA has a comp coming up if you want to try again. That is probably the last one in the northeast until May.
Check the NEBS schedule ( nebs.org ) for contests early next year. The area KCBS certified judging classes will be on there too - highly recommended to know what they are telling judges. We try to judge at least once a year.
