Default Anyone else entering Upper Mississippi Mashout?

http://www.mashout.org/index.html#Poster

Anyone else entering? If so, what are you submitting? I've only heard good things about this competition, supposed to be one of the best judged and most well ran competitions annually. I was hoping to volunteer as a steward (never done that), but have to work Friday night and go to a wedding Saturday night.

I'm submitting an APA, Scottish 70/- (Jamil's), Mild and IIPA (Pliny Clone). I have high hopes for the APA, 70/- and IIPA - however the Mild has an almost overpowering flavor that I think comes from the Crisp Amber malt I used, but I really want some opinions on it to see if the judges agree.

Nice - what did you enter it as?

I had 3/4 place (1st 2nd 2nd). My mild that I didn't particularly like got 1st and my APA that I thought was a slam dunk didn't place! Shows what I know!

English IPA since I used WLP 007.

I honestly just entered to get some constructive feedback. It was a complete whim. I haven't even been brewing for a year yet.

Cool - congrats guys. I was pleasantly surprised to get 3 2nd's out of 5 entries - N.Eng. Brown, Pilsner and Oktoberfest. Couldn't quite pull out a first - but that is OK - 3 placers definitely exceeded my expectations. Looking forward to seeing the feedback.

Anyone know if they picked the "Pour Decisions" award yet? I feel like they haven't said anything about it...like maybe the idea fell through.

I haven't gotten any summary emails or anything - I also sent an email asking how many entries there were this year out of curiosity, but did not get a response yet.
