Not doing PC at a comp makes it pretty boring for the general public. What else is there to do at an event then to walk around and look at banners and tents. I also agree when you are just starting out doing pc is not what you want to focus on. Hopefully you can have someone on your team dedicated to pc so the head cook and at least one assistant do not need to worry about pc. I also take time to interact with the public by answering questions they may have to help them with there own cooks. Like I said earlier I think I have an obligation to sponcers and charities for their parts in a compatition. If we as a community can bring more people to comps then lower entry fees and higher payouts are possible and the general public can also find out how great most competitors are. Most of us, even though you may have dropped $1000 on an event, are willing to help out new teams. This being said what ever we can do to promote the sport is worth doing. That's my opinion.
