Hi and welcome to the forum.
I believe the show schedule you're looking at is for the spring as the fall dates haven't been posted. I have allowed folks to submit pictures of their fish to be to be judged and the results posted in Flare and I do plan to do that again.
If you're looking to send fish to compete you don't actually have to attend the show. You can mail them in.
We also tend to live stream some of the judging at the CBS shows as well as the auction and that info will be posted as the event approaches.
Hope that is helpful!
