National Homebrew Competition

I brewed a Belgium Strong Dark Ale for my 2008 Holiday Cheer beer last October and it turned out great. So great, that I decided to enter it in the National Homebrew Competition this year. I've never entered a beer into a homebrew competition before, but I figured if I'm going to do it, I should start with a beer that I'm really happy with. There was 345 entries in the Belgium Strong Ale category last year, so I'm certainly not expecting to win anything. I'm more curious to see what kind of feedback and comments you receive from the judges. The only feedback I get is from friends and other beer enthusiasts which, along with my own critique, is the only feedback that really matters. But, I'm still curious to see what the official "beer judges" have to say about it. We'll see what happens, but in the meantime, I'll just "relax, don't worry and have a homebrew".
