    True story.

    Once when I was a young smart arse I did something that questioned the integrity of a senior manager in my organisation. I was made to write him a apology.

    So I wrote to him " I'm sorry you misunderstood" - which if that wasn't clearly "Sorry, not sorry" I went on to sign it "sincerely" (with the quotation marks) so it was clear I was really being sincere.

    A certain recent post in this thread has a very similar ring to it.

    trolling isn't for you to decide but the mods and admin.
    do we need a little break to decide what is acceptable.
    as I've said this has already been dealt with by the moderation team.

    Amen, brother!!

    He introduced me to Timmi & after a 12-hour marathon involving several watermelons & a Kg of personal lubricant, I was mere putty in his hands....

    I think I owe another apology here...... :ph34r:

    For the whiners in the gallery..

    I got slammed for my cider entry, out of style, the type of cider I made didn't fit the style guidelines.. Do you know what I didn't do?

    Make a big song and dance about the whole issue, I either didn't read the guidelines correctly...or at all...

    Life's to short to give two shits about a comp entry not doing what I WANTED OR FELT it should be..

    Get a life, move on, mind your own damn business, take it off-line if you feel you must have a say on something that doesn't involve you, above all

    Let the issue here rest.

    You know it's one thing to taunt a fello competitor with your glass that you won, reminding him that he didn't win anything, nah nah nee nah nah ... as if he needed reminding. But to be able to wave a box of glasses under someones nose, now that's accomplishment right there!

    and to witness two grown men fighting over boxes to put all their winnings in was truly disgusting behaviour and that is something I do not wish to be a part of again, at least not as a spectator lol.

    Being there for the VIC awards was good fun. Good luck all in the big event.

    Yeah, the awards "ceremony" is always a bit of blowing-off of steam after all the hard work is done.

    If there was no razzing from the peanut-gallery & a bit of shenanigans, it just wouldn't be the same fun that Vicbrew always is.

    During the committee debrief, we discussed having a "Book-end" award as a bit of a laugh, where someone gets 1st & last in a particular category. Rare, but it does happen (done it myself, as have other members of the committee).

    Some folks (no names will be mentioned) take it waaay too seriously.... ;)

    It's all fun...ya just gotta have a laugh at yourself sometimes...

    The more I think about this comp the more pleased I am..

    I entered 5

    RIS = Third
    Other Specialty = Equal third, missed out on countback
    APA = Equal Third missed out on countback

    Cider = Bombed (predictably as out of style, should have been in other Cider)
    Wood Aged RIS = bit confused about this one but meh.. still scored reasonably

    Overall, a vast improvement on past comps so with a wider view toward averages, seems my game is lifting.

    Once again, thanks to all Judges, stewards and all who turned up for the event, I look forward, again, to next year.

    That's the objective!

    Do you try and enter the same set of styles each year, focusing on a few and playing around with a couple more?

    He focuses on RIS & other high-gravity monsters...but then, so do a lot of others with an inclination to the Juice-Junkie in all of us... :p
