This is one of the nicest locations and a really nice show.
Why bitch and moan about judging? (yes, I am being hypocritical, I moaned last year) They offer a lower rate “show, not judged” entrance. Go to the show, enter, enjoy, leave when you want, save the drama and don’t worry about the trophy.
It is their show and they invite you to attend. If you don’t agree with how it is handled…don’t go.
Or put on your own show, vote for yourself, give yourself a trophy and listen to others bitch about you
