A national KCBS sanctioned event

This is more like it. Reserve Grand Champions. But look at our finish places. 1st, 1st, 4th, 6th. Those kinds of finish places are usually Grand Champion numbers but no.

Still and all, we were thrilled to have done so well and thrilled for our mentor and Grand Champion of this event Ric Gilbert of Rics Rightious Ribs. The exact same thing happened to Ric a few years ago up in Placerville, Ca. So if we were to come in 2nd place with this finish, there's nobody else I'd like it to be.
