Typically the competitions are only really open to the staff (judges, stewards, etc). It's a long event and pretty boring to watch. I'll hafta talk it over with the other coordinators. The kids are likely a no though. We're still taking volunteers if you want to sign up tho to see what its all about.
If you want to see a small judging, you can come to our clubs meeting next week for a club-only barleywine competition (given anyone actually has any). wort.org

Not a problem if it's judges/stewards only. Maybe I'll sign up as a volunteer, what does a steward do? I noticed it looked like you could sign up as a newbie judge? BTW, thanks for the info.

stewards basically bring the judges the beer, make sure they have enough cups/scoresheets/water/etc and check that the scores are tallied correctly. most judges are nice and will let you try some of the beer as well and you can listen in on their thoughts about them too.

newbie judges are welcome as well. they will always be paired up with a veteran judge, tho we expect them to be familiar with BJCP themselves. but if its your first experience with it, we usually recommend stewarding

Just registered 3 brews! I wanted to double check the drop off date. I thought it was the 8th but now the website is saying the 15th. I just want to confirm with you so I don't miss the deadline. Thanks.

The drop off is the 15th now, we decided to give people extra time.

Good luck with the brews!

Just dropped off my entry! It's my first time entering a BJCP competition too. Looking for some helpful feedback on my beer.

Hey DCP. I signed up to be a steward, but based on the email I got the other day, I likely can only be a steward for 1/2 the day (wife's got to work either morning or afternoon and I have to kid sit). With the new format, do we get either morning or afternoon session, or do we need to be at both?

Its preferred for stewards/judges to be there for both sessions, but if you can only be there for one or the other that is fine. Just let us know which so we can assign properly.
