good for Schells, what an asinine list from the BA

As to your scoresheets... Even though our competition only ended 5 days ago, the scoresheets are mailing out this morning!!! That amazing feat can be attributed once again to a staff of 12 volunteers that helped me work last night to match all of the scoresheets up by number to the brewers names, and then stuff the hundreds of envelopes with sometimes as many as 36 entries. I personally was up at 2:30am this morning after the scoresheet sort, labeling, stuffing cover letters, licking and processing all of these score sheet mailers. I am exhausted, but proud to have organized what I feel is one of the best run competitions in the area.
Well, in the "place awarded" box was nothing but empty space. So I didn't advance with those scores. Bummer. I'll be stewarding the afternoon session of the final round. Hope I get to taste some of the Ambers that DID advance.
I guess I've got a year to fine tune that recipe for next year. I just tapped a session IPA that's pretty tasty. If you're coming to Seattle, look for it at the WAHA booth.
Surprised still that there was a safety failure at a commercial brewery. Other than the failure to use one or blockage, how else could the pressure rise so high inside a keg that a bleeder valve or pressure relief valve didn't prevent an explosion? Condolences to the family and co-workers, but it warrants understanding the how and why so it doesn't happen again.
Here's the good news: this idea is already in the hopper!
About the sellouts - remember this is really the first period when people have been shut out, so that's a new trend and we recognize the need to respond to it.
What I'd like to hear, to bring to the GC,is what you'd like to see at these satellite presentations. What's the right size sort of deal?
simple question marty:
was there room for everyone to enter? Being full in 2.5 days says there wasn't.
(no, no, no, this is not a criticism of Janis at all! )
The NHC online registration that was supposed to open Tuesday, February 28, will be available at 10 a.m. Mountain Time on Friday March 2, 2012 instead. I apologize for the delay, and I appreciate everyone's patience and understanding.
The online registration will be available from 10 a.m. MT, March 2 through 6 p.m. MT March 28, 2012. There is an additional competition added this year, so there should be room for everyone to enter. Each of the 10 U.S. competitions has a maximum limit of 750 entries. Once the entry limit has been reached in a competition, the competition will be closed to any further entries. See the top story on the AHA home page for tips to entering online, and look in the 2012 NHC Rules & Regulations for information about the competition.
Good luck in the competition!
