I think that's why a lot of comps I've seen have a 'one per category' rule...IMO, more comps should have that rule. I think there should also be a limit as to how many entries each brewer may enter. There are enough comps all over the country (maybe even close to where you live) that, if you want feedback on 30 beers, you can get feedback on 30 beers.

Would you really want the win at this point? It's like the guy that came in second to Armstrong, or Paterno, et al. You win it by default. I would be happy you have score sheets at this point (hopefully the correct ones!), and leave it at that. Is it really worth the hassel?

My Belgian blond took third in the table. Does this mean I get a prize?

I think score sheets are what matter and the ribbons are just a nice reward. Nice thing is that if you get a ribbon, you win a prize. Could be a tee-shirt, opener, or some beer!

The only thing that sucks is for people like me that heavily favor certain styles. I pretty much only brew sours, Belgians, and stouts.

First contest I entered. Got 2 seconds and 2 thirds! I was more looking forward to getting scoresheets back than the placing. However, I'm really stoked at the results and I'm glad it rewards the people that really are passionate about homebrewing and care about making good beer.

Yes! Depending on whether you are local and can pick up the prize or if it needs to be shipped, you could get anything from brewing supplies, brewery swag, glassware, tee shirts, etc!
