I didn't see this mentioned anywhere else on the forum, and I know it is extremely last minute, but the Kansas City Bier Meisters is hosting their 30th annual homebrew competition on the 15/16th. Unfortunately the deadline is this Thursday, so if you are local you still have time to drop off your entries to the Local Pig in KC MO.
We are also hosting a banquet after the judging on the 16th. The Local Pig will be catering the event, and we'll have a lot of great commercial and homebrew kegs. Even if you don't enter the competition, consider checking out the banquet.
Full details on the event and to purchase banquet tickets are on the club's website: http://www.kcbiermeisters.org/kcbm-competition.html
