    Hi Droid,

    While there are no cash prizes, there are those consisting of product that comes from supporters of the event.

    Not all the ribbons are big, but they do look good, especially so when they are on the mantle piece offering bragging rights to the winners.

    I've actually bought sacks from them at Toormina on the way up and down the coast from SEQ when I lived in Old Bar - highly recommended.
    Bit over an hour's drive from Grafton they are a good place to get supplies.

    Still have a number of boxes containing entries that have not been counted yet. So will know shortly.

    Should have enough to keep the six judges quite busy however.

    Entries where up this year, but not as many showed for tasting.

    Quality was very good this year and much improved over previous years, especially in the kit beers..

    There was some really nice beers and one of my favs was an AG stout and a kit pale ale

    The chilli beer was...OMFG hot...

    The RIS was thick and like syrup... :beerbang:

    I believe so Yob, IIRC quite well received that one was.
    Echo Stu's comments too- vastly improved quality this year, it was a real pleasure to judge, with some excellent beers encountered judging the legacy section comprising of mostly kits and K&Bs, nevertheless very few suboptimal beers overall.
    The tremendous efforts of Matt and the other volunteers ensured the event was a complete success. Ditto for judges and participants, of course the event would not be possible without the support of generous sponsors and show committee, many thanks all round to everyone involved, it has been a real pleasure to be involved.
