Kept retrying, finally got in after about 30 tries.

Events / NHC entry--"Service Unavailable"
« on: February 26, 2013, 09:12:18 PM »
Hi all,
Trying to enter beers in the NHC.  Got registered (slowly) but when I try to add entries, I get a "503 Service Unavailable, try again later" message.  Meanwhile, only 45 of 750 entries are logged, so it's not like the server should be overwhelmed.

@john f--the Saturday members only session is better in many ways.
--fewer drunk college students with no appreciation of craft beer
--lots of beer savvy people who like to talk beer
--more brewery reps to discuss beers with
--a tasting glass made of glass
--awards ceremony
--better giveaways
--more fun crowd with better costumes :)
--it seems like there are more big shots too--we have run into everyone from Jim Koch to Charlie P. to Michael Jackson over the years. Haven't had many experiences like that at the general sessions, though a few.

Unfortunately, sold out for this year.

I am a ten-year-plus member of AHA and have been going to GABF since the early 90's at Currigan Hall.  Used to play the pipes at the festival with Centennial State Pipes and Drums in exchange for a tasting glass (our fourth set of the evening was always a bit loose...)!  Every session got glass tasting glasses back then...

Managed to miss the window, and desperately seeking two tix for the Saturday noon session. Please let me know if you can spare yours.  If you like, I can throw in a 1994 or 1995 GABF tasting glass as a thank you, in addition to face value.
