People are just looking for something to complain about, if they got GC they would not complain. If they do poorly there are people that will complain how far away they were from the judges tent and multiple other things.

You can't make everyone happy all of the time. I understand that you don't want to give off the perception of favoritism. I would say hanging out the day before is ok, but the day of turn ins don't stop by until after judging is complete. Have a beer with our brothers in smoke and help clean up. That way no one could say that there was favoritism.

This is just MO.
I like that whole concept

How y'all are? I'm glad you got to see me I guarontee Justin Wilson 4/24/1914 - 09/05/2001
