And change that "may" for the HBT comp, to a YAY!

I think that you will find the feedback from a competition will be, at the least, informative. Winning something is a nice bonus too.

I hope to help out in a competition this year. Getting a BJCP cert. is difficult, but I'd like to at least give a hand and learn more about the tasting and judging process for when I actually am able to take the BJCP test.
