Forgive me for talking out of my hat here but there must be bids from east coast clubs and in order to be fair to AHA members, the NHC needs to be held throughout the country. As said above, the left side of the country seems to have more than its share of conferences. Five members from our club drove 16 hours with a trailer and 160 gallons of homebrew to participate this year. (From Niagara Falls,NY) More members of our club were hoping for a closer venue next year and I, for one, am extremely disappointed to find the conference further instead of closer to our location. I appreciate the efforts of AHA associates and volunteers but come on guys, help us more easily enjoy the conference a little more often.
