Is the application deadline correct here ? This is a new post, but the deadline date is set at June 8 (2 weeks ago) ?
click the link, i noticed that too but it's a typo; deadline is july 8th
Could you clarify something for me? If on the first day we are not in the top ten finalists after the theory exam, are we not able to compete the next day for the tasting and service?
Sorry about that - my mistake! I fixed it. Thanks for the catch!
Lynn W. Fletcher, can you look into Phil's question here?
I am confused the event is taking place in San Francisco but California residents are not eligible?
I believe CA residents are not eligible for the scholarship towards the event.
That is correct, only the finalists will compete on day 2
California residents are not eligible to apply for the scholarship through SommFoundation, but they are welcome to attend the competition. California residents can register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/bordeaux-sups-sommeliers-of-the-year-registration-62763259599 .
