Comments As it was VERY hot, promoters were very good about offering water, pop, etc. Generally poor auction prices put a bit of a wet blanket on a fun comp. Asked several times after the event for copy of scoresheet but never got one.

Added Comment  Hi Amy, I filled out the poll & signed it. I just wanted to clarify my answer that I thought the judging at Oshkosh was poor. I should have said something in the comment section, but it slipped my mind. I've only done 2 comps, so I'm a newbie at them, but something didn't seem right about that one with judges going around once, then huddling, then some going back around and apparently changing their minds and rescoring some pieces. It's not sour grapes  my part, I (and others) thought it looked strange and some of the results really came out strange. I was told later that the local judge threw a monkey wrench in everything by giving the local carver top scores when the piece wasn't that great. That's all I'm going to say about it.  Thanks, ************
