On second thought after reading a little more about this competition, it does not seem to be a big event. Anybody attended last year's event and can shed any light on it?

I've never had the pleasure of attending, but I've been invited on more than one occasion to help judge. IMHO - The CFHB bunch (Ron, Rockey, Ed, etc...) put on a solid competition each year and offer up very knowledgable & quality feedback to the entrants. I can personally endorse this one to prospective meadmakers who are looking for unbiased opinion(s) on their meads.

Meadllennium is pretty much just a competition, and not an event like the Sunshine Challenge or Dixie Cup or Mead Fest. We are holding it at a new venue this year. The University of Central Florida has a wine tasing lab as part of their Rosen School of Hospitality. It was designed specifically for wine tasting, and we will be judging your meads in a place no other competition can match. Once again, we will be having a mead judging class for the judges, two weeks prior to Meadllennium.

We can accomodate a few spectators, so if you are interested in seeing how Meadllennium runs, E-mail me and I will make arrangements. If some of you GotMead folks are going to be around, maybe we can get together Saturday night for our own MeadllenniumFest. HMMMM - judge meads all day - drink mead at night. Sounds like a great time!!!!

I have posted the date to the GotMead calander, and an announcement to this forum. Be sure to check our web site out often. (www.cfhb.org/mead)
