I know. Who knows. Remind me of another thread I read about a comp in MD ( I think). That was a horror show.

Btw... No

I asked the owner of Original Gravity (a LHBS in Richmond and a dropoff location for the competition) if he knew anything about it a week and a half ago. He told me that the competition coordinator moved (to South Carolina if I remember correctly) two or three days after the competition. I was thinking about attending the next James Rivers Homebrewers meeting, which is supposed to be on the second Wednesday of the month, if I don't hear anything by then. At this point, though, I haven't gotten my results or a response to an email either.

If you find anything out let us know... I have a sinking feeling about this.

Finally got mine yesterday, too. My best score ever - a 38 for my Kolsch (actually should have been a 39, one of the judges made a mistake adding their sheet), good enough for a 2nd place medal and a bag of random swag from their sponsors. Worth the wait, I guess!

Huh? So you were in the table 3 group. From the website:

Table 3 - American Light (28 Entries)

I entered a beer in BJCP category 6A, cream ale. My cover sheet says 28 entries so, I'm assuming it was in this table.

My sheet also says it scored a 41 (I know-right?). Now the 1 at the table was American light lager and 2 and 3 were kölch.

How does that work... It's my first comp and I looked on the Dominion cup website to see how the table/flight thing works but I'm stumped.

BTW- I'm thrilled with my scores I was just trying to figure out how they do this. Anybody know?

Check out the BJCP guidelines for "mini Best of Show" procedures: http://www.bjcp.org/docs/MiniBOS.pdf
Looks like they consolidated some categories (which is why Kolsch and Cream Ale were in American Light), advanced some number from the 28 entries to the mini BOS, and did the placements from there. Scores are thrown out once a beer reaches the mini BOS, all those beers are judged relative to each other to determine the awards.

Yep, this is exactly how it was organized. Most tables had 5 or 6 judges, and after the end of the scoring round, they advanced the top beers by score to the mini-BOS. This was anywhere from 4-6 beers at the table, and then these were judged relative to each other to determine final placings.

I was very pleased with the beers I entered: got a bronze in the Fruit/Spice category with a Rosemary Saison, and an Honorable Mention in the American IPA.

Here are some photos I took at the event:

If you're in the area and would like to see how a well-organized competition is run, I would recommend volunteering next year. It was a great time!

Thanks for the link... Very informative.

So my scoresheet says prize awarded "h.m."

Does the mean I made it to the mini BOS and lost out there or does that mean it nearly made it to the mini BOS? Realizing of corse that BOS in this sense
is to determine winners within the group at table three including American lagers, kölsch, cream Ales and the like.
