    Yes, the BBQ was fantastic, I thought that after a slow start, the staff had good intonation and balance. Dynamically overall, a strong performance with a good finish...You just ask the Adjudicators! (Even Bayred Migt Agree?)

    Indeed, however I felt that they give it a bit too much towards the end, and the contents had to be consumed in the bar afterwards;)
