Thanks to the both of you (Michael & Ross) & all of our guest judges for helping us out at the NHC (1st Round) in Tulsa, OK. We had some great beers & meads with some solid catered food from the 907 Café to lay down some good "belly mortar" for enjoying all of those fine homebrews. It's always nice to see entrants putting forth effort to help judge a competition they have vested interest in. I agree that we were "short-handed" due to Tulsa Craft Beer Week (TCBW) compared to our normal judging pool, but we also had a great crew on the other side of town at the festival speaking "the good beer (homebrew) gospel" and received alot of publicity for craft & homebrewed beer in Oklahoma. We'll definitely coordinate better & offset the dates IF High Gravity (Desiree) decides to host it again next year, but this year it was totally out of our control. Thanks again to you both! P.s. It was very nice to finally meet you Ross "Angry Scotsman" Harper. You're really not as "Angry" as all of that!
