Thanks

Post by alikocho »

A huge thanks to all who helped out in judging and stewarding today. It wouldn't have been possible without you, and I hope you had a good time (even if there was some realization that it's a rather demanding process).

And particular thanks to Matt Leaver who had one of the less interesting jobs and kept things running smoothly.

And thanks to you too Ali, setting the standard for a great competition that is going to get people talking and I'm sure the number of entries next year will be huge :)

This year I think that I will finally develop an invisible cardigan and my project to extract gold from spiders legs will also reap great rewards.

I enjoyed it. Next year, we'll need a bigger room, and to start earlier. Oh, and more judges.

If next year's competition is bigger, is there any chance some of the judging might have to take place on the first of a two-day event?

Just as some feedback (I actually thought the room was okay for the size of the comp this year), two or three people at the London & SE comp said they felt the room was too small for this year's event. One person also complained that St. Werburgh's wasn't in Bristol. Having failed to convince them twice, I then just ignored them ; )

Two day judging is almost a certainty. It would have been done this year, but with people bringing beer on the day there were no complete categories before the morning of he comp.
