Default Entering Homebrew Alley 6

So Ive decided its time to entry a home brewing contest, if for nothing else to receive the judging results on my entries(though of course I'd like to place with them too). My question is, Im not really sure into which style category my Pumpkin Ale falls. Ive read the style guidelines and Im thinking it is a specialty or spice. Can anyone tell me what they have entered theirs in ?

My first competition was also Homebrew Alley (4) with a pumpkin beer

I entered it as 21A.

I'm entering my porter this year in two different categories to see which one it fits in better, robust or brown.

I've also entered a beer into this competition.

It was a Rye Pale Ale. I entered in 6D the American Wheat Rye category, but I'm not sure if I would have been bettr off in the pale categories.

Thoughts?

Looks like I'm going now. My boss said I can leave work and come back when it's over. Nice.

For those who are going, do you get all your results there or do you just see who the winners are?

Hope everyone had I good time at the competition. Interested to hear people's results...especially how your pumpkin beer scored Viking.

I grabbed 3rd place in category 6 Hybrid Beers with my American Rye.
