Anyone get their second round packets yet?

25 days until I travel nearly 2500 miles, just to drink some beer.  ;D

Sugar magnolia -  The Greatful Dead
Do we get to call renege if a song has already been played?
Renege! ::)

Not much of a Dead fan, but is it a secret why everyone is spelling this wrong, "Greatful vs Grateful"?

Good Point.  I do the same with the Patriots games here in New England ( except for that ferry thing  ;D ). 

I'm not going to the dinner Tuesday night.  Probably hit the local spots (Rock Bottom etc ).  I'm going on a tour Wednesday then BNA7 on Wed night, I hope.

35 days until I catch my flight.  I like this better since it is sooner.  I have a 3 hour layover in Chicago around 9:30am...would that be too early to have a beer?  :o  That's assuming they are serving at that time.

Anyone seen ribbons or certificates yet for the first round?  Still waiting over here.   Also if you had some beer advance in a previous year when do they send out the information for the next round?  Just curious, this is our first year entering.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Nothing received yet, but I'm sure it will be soon.  I imagine they work on getting the second round letters out first.  According to the rules, the info for advancing entries will be mailed out by May 25th, and entries can be sent May 29th - June 11th.  All the info you need should be in the packet.

Grading on a scale...gotta love it.   I got a 17 on a Physics exam in college and that was a passing grade.  One kid got a 100%...bastard.  If it wasn't for him, my 17 probably would have been an A.  ;D

Don't forget, it's a competition.  Some consider it to be the Superbowl of comps.  I think people should do whatever they can ( outside of cheating ) to present their best beer.  If that means rebrewing, not rebrewing, etc, so be it.

I don't think holding scoresheets would matter too much.  Some will rebrew even before they know they advanced.  Maybe they tweek the recipe based on comments from other competitions.  I got my scoresheets back a month before the official release of the results ( I sent to the Philly region ), but none of them were marked with a place awarded.  I figured they didn't make it through.  Then the results came out and I got a second in the Light Lager category ( thankfully I didn't drink it all yet ).  Maybe the AHA can have the regions not mark a place awarded on the sheet, that way everyone knows at the same time.

As long as everyone has the same opportunity, then bring it on.  My entry going forward is a Munich Helles.  I'm not rebrewing it, mostly because I'm lazy, but also I just don't have the time.  If it doesn't win in the second round, that's ok.

I think the AHA and all the volunteers are doing a great job running the largest homebrew competition in the world.

Is the Rye IPA going to be at the banquet or is it the bottle they give to the attendees?
