Twenty-five more competitors stepped up the stage again today for the second half of the first round of competition. It’s the first time in four years that the field of competitors has been completely filled. There are a total of 59 competitors here. The 50 that have competed over the last two days, and the nine regional winners who will not start competing until tomorrow when the semi-finals start.
I’m writing this now as Sarah is at the convention center announcing the baristas who will join the regional winners in the semi-final round. You can find out who made the cut by visiting the ongoing coverage of the SCAA by the SCAA blogger team. Just click here.
In the meantime, here are some photos of a few of the competitors from the second day of the first round.
See you at the semi-finals tomorrow!
