I know personally, that I want to enter only displays as well as receive
any *constructive* criticism I can get during them or at events. (I can
get the other kind of criticism anytime. *grin*)
I have this strange feeling about "competitions" that just doesn't fit
right with me. Part of this is due to the fact that brewing can not be
judged against Viking bone carving, weaving (except from said drink),
armor making, etc.
Since I am getting more serious about doing this "right", I am going
to be paying more attention to documentation, presentation besides the
actual work at displays and competitions.
