Title: Final Round Scoresheets?
Post by: marcpowell on June 29, 2011, 12:59:22 pm
This being my first shot at the NHC, I have no idea what the standard procedure is.  I had a few move on, but none placed. 

My question: do you actually get your final round scoresheets in the mail?  I'd like to see who judged my beers and how they held up, if they made it to mini BOS, etc. 

Anyone know?

We should be getting them any day now, I hope!

You will get them back.  They are a little different, as there is a unique sheet used for the second round.

If you are like me, things move a little slow after the conference, and I am sure it is also true for the organizers.  Good to meet you in SD.

I just sent Janis an email about this and got this automated response...

"I am in the office today.  The score sheets, medals, and prizes that were not picked up at National Homebrew Competition awards ceremony will be sent out this week and next (July 5-15), so I may not have access to e-mail except for an hour or two each day.

If this information doesn't answer your question, it may take me awhile to catch up with my e-mail, but I will reply as soon as humanly possible."

Hopefully, you should see your stuff showing up this week.

I did not realize they were available at the awards ceremony and I looked as they had been available last year.

My medal, scoresheets, and prizes arrived yesterday.  Pretty slick. I really liked getting 9 oz. of Zeus hops, since I happen to be out of them.

Thanks AHA!

Sadly, it seems like the Governing Committee gets left out of more good things. :(

(Oh, we have to enter - well, damn)

My theory is that if you don't enter, you can't lose....

Awesome!  You're welcome, and thanks for entering the 2011 NHC!

Hi John,

The score sheets were not available at the awards ceremony this year.  Last year, the competition organizers (Joe Gerteis and Kristen England) arranged for the administrative help during the competition to ready the score sheets so they could be given out after the Awards Ceremony.  Their club has done this in the past with the Upper Mississippi Mash Out, so they knew how to work it for the Final Round.  Distributing score sheets this way was unusual, and shouldn't be considered the norm for the NHC.  This year's Final Round organizers (Harold Gulbransen and Paul Sangster) did not have prior experience with distributing score sheets so quickly after the competition, so it wasn't an option this year.

Cheers,
   Janis

Hi everyone,

Thanks for entering the 2011 National Homebrew Competition, and thanks also for your patience.  I know it isn't easy to wait for your competition results, and it's even harder when you don't know why it takes so long. For future reference, this is why it takes so long for the score sheets and prizes to be sent out after the Awards Ceremony at AHA's National Homebrewers Conference.  This year we had 790 entries from 457 homebrewers competing in the NHC Final Round.


Once the prizes are shipped, the rest of the score sheets need to be mailed out.  In order to do that, the following has to happen.

I apologize for the additional delay in this year's mailing (2 weeks) due to a second business trip and illness.  I know it isn't easy to wait for your score sheets.  For next year I will add a time line for the competition to the NHC Rules & Regulations to give everyone an idea of what and when to expect all of the different milestones of the competition to occur.  Hopefully that will help with anxieties around the posting of the First Round Results and the First and Final Round mailings, etc.

Thanks again for participating in the 2011 NHC!  Happy brewing!

Cheers,
    Janis
