Michael, I got my scores back today from Tulsa judging and I only had one beer entered, it was in the 14C cat. I scored a 36.5 and it says advanced to mini-BOS, I take that meant that it went to a second judge cause I have two score sheets.

In a Mini-BOS, entries are ranked, but not normally scored.  Those two sheets you got back would have been from the two judges who judged your beer before the mini-BOS.

OK  the NHC says all results have been processed!!  Now can we get the results?....or do we have to wait another week?

I dunno.  But New York was one of the first regions 'processed' and I haven't seen my score sheets yet.

Have you considered bringing your own water?

Any packages with delayed delivery due to forces beyond the entrants control will be accepted if they are received within a reasonable time frame.

Hmmm.  Mine now says delivered today at 1:44.  I'm not sure how they delivered it twice, but I guess it's there!   :)

Update.  This morning my UPS status is "On Vehicle for Delivery Today", so I guess it really was held up by the reciever as UPS indicated.  So it will be delivered today, a day after it was due, despite actually having gotten there by Tuesday.

In the email response from Ken he indicated that my entry would be fine if there by Friday, so I guess I'm OK.  A perplexing situation.  I think next time I'll consider making the trek to drop it off myself.

If it makes you feel any better, mine also says "On Vehicle for Delivery Today," so if mine was really delivered Tuesday, maybe yours was already delivered too.

I have exactly the same issue which has had me concerned all day.  I sent an email to Ken and he responded that there should have been no holds, but my tracking still says "Held for Future Delivery".

Hopefully mine was actually delivered as well!

Yeah.  As of this morning, mine still says "Held for Future Delivery," but I will assume Ken is correct and that it was actually received.

Ken Hettinger checked on this, and your package was just delivered.

Cheers,
Janis

Thank You.  I didn't expect anyone to actually take the time to check on this one shipment.  I was really just wondering if I was the only one (like something might have fallen through the cracks with UPS).  But I really do appreciate it.  It's a big relief, because I hate shipping bottles.  Thanks again to you and Ken.

So I shipped my bottles to New York yesterday (Monday).  (From my area, it's one day delivery, so there's a day of wiggle room before the Wednesday deadline.)  I shipped to the revised New York address that was recently provided to New York region entrants via email.

So I checked the status with UPS and got this...

Brooklyn, NY, United States  03/26/2013  4:33 A.M.  The receiver requested a hold for a future delivery date. UPS will attempt delivery on date requested. / Delivery rescheduled.

Anyone else get something like this?  Should I worry?
