    Default Toot'n my own horn

    Have to brag on myself so bear with me.

    Just got back from a show where I nailed my highest score ever and the highest score in my class ever (again :D )!

    Whats better is that I also got Best of Show for the highest score overall which is unheard of by an Amatuer (even tho its my 2nd! :D :D )

    Whats even better is that I beat that dude that always beats me with the Focal/Audison system by 6 points AND beat Scott Selvidge in Master Class albeit by only .1 point. Thats the best part cause Scott has the best system Ive ever heard and usually mops the floor with everybody, so much so that a lot of us started jokingly calling the Best of Show award the Selvidge award, so luckily he was having an off day but Ill still take it cause Im sure he'll tear me a new one at the next show!

    Icing on the cake is that the competition today was pretty stiff with the top 3 guys in my class showing up and the judge being a "finals level" judge.

    OK, enough toot'n. Im going to get drunk now and watch the Tennessee/Florida game.

    HOLY SH*T! I won Alabama State Finals!!

    I was announced as 2nd place after 2 tiebreakers by .7 points but the event director for that show just posted on the MECA forum that in going over the score sheets I actually outscored the other guy albeit just barely!!!

    Woohoo!!!!!

    They even corrected it on the results page!

    Actually it was by .7

    We both tied with a 54 and I won by .7 points in the tie breaker which is the tonality scores only added up. But since their computer wont let them put both first and second place scores as the same, they make one .1 lower.
