Seriously, just bring an open mind and a willingness to learn. They will mostly teach how the judging process works and show how the entries are passed around and about what to look for as far as garnish, sauce puddling and marking. Taste is and will always be subjective. They will supply the materials. I would think that a pen would be all you'll need. Have a good time.
