It will be held at the law offices of Holland and Knight, located in the Back Bay region of Boston about 2 blocks from the Public Garden. This year there are a total of 238 entries (the entry window is now closed). We are still looking for experienced judges to help with this years competition. If you are able to help with judging, please fill out the judge registration form at http://bhc.wort.org/judgereg.shtml. Further details about the judging are located at http://bhc.wort.org/judgeinfo.shtml . Note that the competition site is easily accessible by the T and Commuter Rail and on site parking is available (the competition will cover the cost for people who register to help out in advance). Important Note: As the competition will be held in a secure building, pre-registering to judge or steward before the competition is required. We need to give building security a list of people helping in advance of the competition. If you have already signed up to help out, thanks a lot. I'll be contacting you soon with the final details. If any of you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Mark - -- Mark E. Irwin Judge Coordinator - BHC 13 irwin at wort.org http://www.wort.org Return to table of contents

I recommend it if you're in town when it's on tap...usually during October and November, IIRC. _/_ Scott Alfter / v \ Visit the SNAFU website today!
