Default County fair beer competition - which catergory?

I'm thinking about entering a Lemon Blonde and a Black IPA/Cascadian Dark Ale in a local county fair competition. It's not BJCP and the catergories are a little different. Which ones should I enter these under?

Here's how they've got it broken down:

Class

Lagers
1 Light
2 Medium
3 Dark

Ales
4 Light
5 Medium
6 Dark
7 Porter
8 Stout
9 Bock
10 Strong beer (o.g. of 1.070 or greater)
11 Wheat

Others
12 Fruit Flavored
13 Vegetable Flavored
14 Spice Flavored
15 Cider
16 Specialty/Experimental/Historical
17 Any Other Beer not listed above

Mead
18 Any Mead


I think I will enter the Lemon Blonde under #12 and the Black IPA under #16. Agree? Disagree?

I agree with Lemon Blonde under #12, but I'd put the CDA/Black IPA under #6. It's a dark ale, and it's not a Porter (#7), or Stout (#8), so I'd say it goes there.

Weird that they have porter and stout as specific and different styles when the other categories are so wide

The Black IPA would be Specialty. It is an IPA but out of its style range due to color and grain bill.

Yeah, I thought this breakdown was kind of weird too. I think I will stay with my initial plan of entering 12 and 16.

Thanks all for your input!
