The judging for this competition was not just inexplicable, but an outright embarrassment. The organizers of this event need to realize they will lose all credibility with incompetence like this. It appears the judges watched a completely different competition from the rest of the audience (trust me, this opinion is shared by others). Either that or politics/personal agendas are destroying any integrity in the scoring. A shame.

There are lots of reasons that I love Main Event, but one of the biggest is the organization. Paws (the host exhibition) took the stage right on schedule for the last performance. Way to go Manteno volunteers!

There are many groups here who I am not super familiar with, or haven't seen live in a long time, so I'm sure my predictions will be wrong, but here is my best guess!

GC: Milton (BV, BC, BB)
1RU: John Hersey
2RU: Crete-Monee
3RU: Pekin
4RU: Bishop Luers
5RU: Batavia

Good luck to all performing groups!!

Pekin will be attending. It also looks like Watseka, Herscher, and John Hersey will be there as well.
