I had an email from Cindy the other day mate,  about pitches and pods....there are other pitches (I think behind us) but where on the site folks will end up nobody knows??

The other point to make also is if folks are thinking about attending get the booking done & dusted....otherwise they could miss out??

I will give the judges and competitors a quick guide to SCA judging before (it will take about 10 minutes 🙂 ) 

Each of the competitors get to chose 2 steaks from the stock however they only turn in one - This gives you some leeway. 

Dont forget - Just like KCS you are cooking to a competition standard NOT to what you prefer. For example I like my steak blue however that would get low marks from the judges.
