I think I can explain this one after my question to Yooper yesterday
Mine was the porter that advanced from the East, and then eventually won the category in the second round. I received a 3rd Place ribbon. That confused me obviously.
Yooper explained that for ribbon purposes, 12/13 were combined, and because of that, I was actually Third Place. So I guess yours was behind mine since only one advanced from the East, which would be at least 4th if a stout didn't fall between ours.
It was confusing, but I understand now.
