At the St. Joe contest I witnessed three Master Judges drinking beer at 11 am in the beer tent. I asked them if they were drinking beer and the initial answer was Why? Because you're judging, I responded. One of the three said, We can't drink DURING judging. I told them that I beg to differ. They kept drinking their beer. I got in contact with the Rep (Mike Budai) who in turn disqualified them from judging. They came back out to ask my team name so they could write a story about me in the next Bullsheet. I gave it to them. The one guy told the organizer: Mike Budai doesn't want us to judge and neither does this (while pointing at me).
Couple of things/thoughts....abide by the rules. Second one, I don't care to be referred to as "this", I prefer to be called by my name and I made sure I told them my name because as cookers we spend a lot of money and a lot of time out there and I made sure they knew I turned them in, because that's not the way I roll. I am respectful and should refer to them by their moniker.....The Flying Judges.
I figure everybody would figure it out once their story went to print. Ought to be an interesting read. I'm trying to figure out how they're going to spin it to make it look like I'm the bizatch and they weren't breaking the rules..... I also wonder if they do that often because they sure weren't stopping the beverage drinking nor did they think they did anythring wrong.....
