Grillstock Bristol 2015 - Update!
I’ve always been a believer in judging people not by their mistakes, but the way they go about fixing them.
So we got a call from Jon over @ Grillstock earlier today, as it turns out some of the scores were entered incorrectly last weekend, meaning that some of the places were incorrect.
I know from speaking with other contest organisers that this is each and every one of their worst nightmares, but when you’ve got 3,234 individual scores to enter this type of thing can happen! It’s also worth mentioning that I don’t know of a contest or sanctioning body out their which hasn’t had its own problems with scoring at some point!!!
But, instead of trying to sweep it under the carpet and pretend it didn’t happen, the guys at Grillstock have decided to tackle this head on. Deal with it openly and as soon as possible. For this I cannot praise them enough. This shows their honesty and integrity in boat loads and I’m really proud of them for this.
Grillstock have now identified the scores which had additional points added and put them as they should have been. For us we were one of the lucky ones. Our scores were correct, and were good enough to be crowned Grand Champion for the 4th year in a row!
We’ve also got to say a huge congrats to our long time Grillstock neighbours the Backyard Brummies for taking RGC.
Sadly there’s no photo of us on stage to go with this one. But hey, we’re lucky enough to have been up their before and know what it’s like.
Also congratulations to the other teams who’ve also now been awarded their correct positions.
For the teams who weren’t getting the nice call today, we feel for you. That’s all we’re going to say about it. We’re all good friends on the BBQ circuit and this isn’t the nicest way for this all to happen. But we’ve enjoyed hanging out with all of you over the weekend and look forward to seeing you all in competition again soon.
