2010 Gordon Fall Line Festival

This was our first Grand Championship. We almost didn't go to this contest because Dionn's cousin Rachel was getting married in Atlanta. We got set up on Friday morning and left to go to the rehearsal dinner. We then drove back to Gordon 90 minutes away.
After rib turn in, we found out that we made finals. So we turned in our finals box, dressed for the wedding. As soon as we turned the box in, we hit the road and got to the wedding just in time. I was getting text alerts about awards, and first place rib was Holy Smokes. We were in the front row of the church, about to jump out of our seat in anticipation. We got another text that said, "Grand Champion is….." and what seemed like 5 minutes. "Holy Smokes"!  I was so excited I quickly stood, up went outside, and screamed for joy.
