I thoroughly enjoyed the day.  Good judging, I did not witness impartiality nor bad sportsmanship.  No unusual hiccups or delays; Mr. Hunter did a great job with the mic (I could understand everything he said!), and the location had great parking and changing areas. 
Even though this was a 1st annual, the experience behind the scenes made it flow beautifully. No complaints.
