Default Re: Solo Competition Breakdown

After not competing for more years than I care to think about, I decided
to give it a try. I competed twice that season and the first judge pointed out
an issue in the third part of the jig I played in a h/p jig contest.
I worked very hard to improve that section before the second go.
