Competition Update – August 2020

Unfortunately, we have decided that we will not be holding our FOAM Cup competition this year, due to extenuating circumstances.

I have been tracking High Plains and other 2020 competitions. So far, the Sowers Cup and Tulsa State fair competitions have been canceled. ( FYI – the entire 2020 Fair has officially been canceled.)

At least two of the first 2021 competitions are currently planning on going ahead:

Bluebonnet Brewoff in Dallas. Judging is tentatively scheduled for the over several weekends in February next year. As more details become available, I’ll let you know! While this is not part of the High Plains circuit, we have had several club members be successful at this one.

The IBU Open. Site registrations on September 21, and entry registrations start on December 21. Again, more details to follow. This is a High Plains event.
