I might be able to help with some in IA or MN. You doing the MN in May contest this year? I have a wedding in May that may conflict with that one but I would love to get some practice.
I have judged a few contests but never cooked at one. We just found out that there will be a KCBS contest in my home town (Aberdeen SD) in July and I plan on cooking at that contest.
Some people are like Slinkys, they are good for nothing but can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
Down to one lonely ol' Bandera.
