Can someone explain what is meant by open format.

Will it be blind judging?

Hi Smitty,

This is my fault not making it clear, Ric has been helping me refne everything for the contest

The judging will be done PNWBA style, just like we had up in Stockton for WOW last year and what will be done at Morgan Hill this year. The judges will have no idea of who the turn in belongs to, but you will get a comment card on all your entries.

Regards,

Mark

Hi Smitty,

I made a mistake, sometimes my mouth gets ahead of my brain.

I just got off the phone with my trusted advisor, and was corrected on what I said. Here is the correct info:

Turn ins to the judges will be on the PNWBA shedule, but the judging will be done live, directly to the team. The team will not be given their scores, just the feed back from the judges. Scores will be given at the time of the awards.

Hopefully i got that right.

Mark

A backyard event on steroids. Full cook, real time feedback. Cook/judge dialog exchange.

Wow! This is a unique judging twist. Sounds pretty cool. Open communication and score cards!

Hi Smitty,

Because of the location that we are holding this event at, there is going to be a private judge's room instead of the typical tent. Most likely there will be two to four judge's tables in the room, the door will be shut, so other than the judges and the teams being judged, no one else is allowed in the room.

Can't wait to see what you are going to do.

Daring to go beyond the standard thigh turn in? This is the place to try it.

Bummer, half the fun of the event is watching others get judged and seeing heartbreak and triumph exhibited.
