Who's coming? I'd love to meet a legendary celebrity, too!
I AM a BJCP judge, though, and at the "certified" level and I'd be happy to help you pick apart your beer.
I have no homebrewing gear coming along. I gave two MLTs (a 10 gallon and a 5 gallon) to my neighbors, but I think they left them at their summer place in Wisconsin, and won't have them in TX.
I'll check with them, just to see if they have the brewing gear and let you know. They are up the street from me. I met them last year, because they had a corney keg on their back porch! (story here, if you want to remember how it started: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f45/neighbors-308113/
I'll PM you my phone number and email- my phone works "ok" most of the time but I don't always get a good signal. I can check voicemail, though, and email, at the house.
