Default Bluebonnet Brew-off

I'll be entering a few beers this year. I've got a few browns to choose from, an American stout, and a blonde I'll be entering. This will be my first competition so I'm not expecting any accolades. I'd just like some feedback from someone other than my friends and family.

Who else is entering? What are you entering? Any tips for a competition noob?

I have an IPA I'll be entering along with a hoppy blonde/pale ale that I'm going to enter in both categories.

I entered my Centennial Cascade Pale Ale, Nut Brown, and Appewine. I also just booked my room at the hotel, looking forward to the festivities in Dallas.

My first also. I've got a few beers that I feel are better than what I sent but all I had left was bombers.

I hope HBT's Strat_Thru_Marshall wins best in show again this year. Only cause I get to swap beers with him.

Men, best of luck. I was hoping to be ready to enter this year, but since I moved from Atlanta to Ft. Worth, I am not in a position to brew (stuff is still in storage). I have some Chocolate Coffee Stout and a few bottles of cider, but nothing i would put up.
