Good going! Can't wait to hear what your prize is.

Congratuations, I have brewed that recipe a few times myself. It is great. I haven't brewed it since I moved to full boils. I may have to adjust the recipe a bit and get that one on the to do list.

I see in the recipe thread that you dry hopped a batch, is that the one you won with? I had been thinking about doing the same, but the original recipe was so good, I didn't want to mess with it.
Primary 1) Empty
Secondary 1a-f) - 2 gallons Traditional Mead, 4 Gallons Melomel, 2) Wee Heavy Widgeon Ale, 3) Pintail Pale Ale
Bottled - Amber Ale, TheJadedDog's All Amarillo IPA x2, Apfelwine, Wit Bier, Stout, Pintail Pale Ale (V1-Cascade, V2-Amarillo), Graff

Yes, the batch I brewed had two changes to TheJadedDog's recipe -- I added a one-ounce dry hop (also Amarillo) for about 2 weeks, and I fermented with yeast from Bell's Two-Hearted ale.

I haven't gotten around to entering anything either. I'm looking forward to it though!

Way to go! I recommend updating the recipe thread to brag it up a little.
