Default Texas Mead Fest-- anyone going?

Rohan Meadery in La Grange is hosting the Inaugural Texas Mead Fest. They're also having a mead contest, which intrigues me, as I'd appreciate some professional feedback on my efforts. Any Texans plan on going?

I am 3 hours from lake Texhoma. Would need to look up how. Far into Texas that is and see if I can take a ride down.

All depends on kickoff times that day. Would like to stop by and see how things are going.

Unfortunately, I'm too new to mead making to have anything to enter, but hope to next year.

@Arpolis, Rohan Meadery is southeast of Austin. I think about 45min if I remember correctly.

If I can talk my husband into it. Mead isn't his thing but he will probably agree.

Are you entering anything? I have expanded my entry to Raspberry Melomel, Hibiscus Melomel and a Peach Melba.

Entries are from 11:00am to 12 noon.
