yeah, talk about a thankless job.  Janis works her ass off for this competition and I bet the only thing she ever hears is the people to b****.

Didn't some guy give her a big hug at a conference a couple years ago?   :o

Probably not the thanks she is looking for.  ( are the databases done yet? ;) )

I remember seeing it at the drive thru when they did the re-release before Empire Strikes Back came out.)

Did they ask if you wanted fries with your movie?   ;D  ( I was 10 )

Raise the entry fee substantially and there will be plenty of space and you'll stop a lot of the shotgunning.

Problem is if you raise it too much, you might price out people who have outstanding beer.  I can afford multiple entries, but if it goes up too much, I'll just not bother out of principal, and possibly make me rethink my annual membership with the AHA.

And for the record, the first three movies were out before I was born ;).

I saw Episode 4 at a drive-in movie Dad to me and my sister. 

Kegging Maibock and hopefully brewing the CYBI Arrogant Bastard clone ( attempt #2 ) with the Chinook I have in the freezer.  I think I'll call it "Chinookiee Wookiee"  ;D

I love the fact that I can be at the brewery in 30-40 minutes.  New tanks are being installed ( until new brewery is done ) so production is coming back to NH ( some is done in NY somewhere ).

Meh, it just means he's an OG starwars fan before Lucas ruined it by filming it. (the original script was about Anakin Starkiller)

I love me some Star Wars ( look at forum name ), but DAAAMMMNNNN!!!  ;)

Outstanding grills.  I've had mine for 7 years and it still works great.  My old Charbroil one rusted out in 2 years time, but it was my first grill at my first house so we went cheap.

Even the cover I got with the grill is heavy duty!!!

I would.  You never know what's going to happen where they are storing them until the competition.

The AHA sent an Action Alert to Alabama members this morning.  House Bill 354 sponsored by Rep. Mac McCutcheon, to legalize homebrewing in the state has been scheduled for a hearing before the House Economic Development and Tourism Committee tomorrow, Wednesday, March 7.  We are asking Alabama residents to contact the members of the committee and politely urge them to vote in favor of the bill.  If it passes through the committee, it will be sent to the full House for a vote.

You can see the action alert at

Someone definately needs to brief Rep McCutcheon better this time.  Great...more Alvin Holmes clips coming our way.  I really hope this is the year of Alabama!!!  Good luck!!!!

Also, I'm probably lucky in that I live in Bermuda - I have no "regional" entry center, and could just as easily have picked any of them (DHL, if you're reading this, I promise it's soda I'm shipping).

Just so you know, anyone can pick any regional just have to send all of them to only one.  I was contemplating a new region if my region sent to Sarasota this year, but luckily they went back to Philly.

Maybe it should be set up like the Miss America pageant.  Each state will have a qualifiy competition and the winners will go on to compete in the Nationals.

AARGGGHH!!!! I just pictured the Swimsuit competition  :P

Question:  About what % of entries come from non-AHA members?

I'm not 100% certain, but I think you have to be an AHA member to enter.

I think you are given the option to join to get the $10 entry rate, but I think I remember seeing $15 for non-members.  I could be wrong...I tend to drink a bit  ;D

I think a better analogy for homebrew competitions would be a bowling league.

Puna...this wasn't your house I hope:

  It used to be at Kemper arena in KC often when the NCAA was headquartered in KC.  Not anymore, it is in larger cities with a stadium large enough to seat a huge crowd, adn the hotels that can handle that.  Not saying it will be that big, but the needs of a larger conference will force changes to where it can be.

Outdoor football stadiums!! ;D

Mkultra69:  Were you not aware that you didn't have to enter in your region?  Sorry you missed the cutoff, but I'd still go to the conference, especially when it's in your backyard!!
