I have nothing to add except that I think it'd be funny if all of the Northern Brewer forum-ites started listing their club as "NB Navy".

And here's the Club President.

[I belong to their club.  I was the club president.  I go to several meetings a year.  I judge in their competitions.  I proctor exams held there.  I'm active on their email list.  I hang out with them at the conference.  I bring kegs to serve in their booth at club night.  I wear the club shirt at club night.  I go to outside social events with them.  I'll match my interactions with this group with anyone who lives within a couple miles of any other club.  Most importantly, I'm a member of the club because I choose to be.  And I continue to be a member even though I'm done entering the NHC.  Same as I was before I entered the NHC.

And for those keeping count, they would have won Club of the Year even if I didn't enter at all.  Check the numbers from Cincinnati for the best example.  Something like 8 different club members medalled in the 2nd round, many of them golds.  They won it with people with St. Paul zip codes. Don't take that achievement away from them.

I never intended to take anything away from them.  I was just making a point about how you don't need to be in the same region to belong to a club.  I apologize if it was taken that way.  Pretty impressive resume though.

Now the BN is like the New England Patriots.  After they won their Superbowls, everyone said they cheated and started gunning for them.
Everyone knows the Pats cheated. ;D

I can't hear you over the sound of the Superbowl rings clicking together  :P

So maybe it's time for the other clubs to step it up and start gunning for CoTY...because you know the BN will be next year.

On the OT, I found that following the #NHC2011 hashtag on twitter was helpful in seeing what was going on.

I did this and it only made me kick myself harder for not going to the conference  >:(

Seriously, it was great information being posted and I WILL use it next year in Seattle!!

It's been a killer conference so far.  Really smooth, great facility, lots of great beer.....hell, people even attended my seminar for some reason I can't fathom.  Tonight is club night which is always the highlight for me.  If you're thinking about going to Seattle next year, don't hesitate...just do it!

I've been watching the twitter feeds from the AHA and I think the hardest part is picking which talk to go to.  There are some really good talks happening at the same time.  Do you typically do your talk a couple times during the conference?

Dumbest comment I heard from the commentators near the end of game 7.

"Boston beat the British, and they will beat British Columbia"  or something like that...

I don't watch, follow or really even condone hockey but anything that puts USA beating Canada gets a thumbs up in my book.  ;D

Was surprised to see the Vancouver fans' reaction. Taking it waaaaay too seriously, fellas.

At least it's better than Detroit where they burn stuff when they win.

As a Boston fan, I can say there have been some pinheads that make the fans look really bad after the Patriots/Red Sox championships.  Some people just like to burn s*** down I guess.

365 days and counting... :D

I am planning to attend my 1st NHC in Seattle, as long as something doesn't come up to screw up my plans like every other year ( surgeries, death, job, etc ).

As you might expect, there's going to be the usual grumbling about another West Coast NHC, but it's all up to the local clubs getting together and putting a bid in.  With that said, I think there will be a big push for Philly in 2013.

Can you directly set the evaporation rate, or do you have to extrapolate from the starting volume/ending volume measurements?

I don't have 2.0 in front of me but you can set your evaporation rate in the equipment setup.

I had about 5 minutes to spare this weekend so I downloaded and installed it.  I love that fact that everything I had customized in version 1.4 carried over to 2.0 seamlessly.

I'm looking forward to playing around with it this week.

Just to save a little face here, there are plenty of educated and enlightened areas in Alabama. For instance, Huntsville has more rocket scientists and engineers per capita than almost anywhere else in the US.

And don't forget Spacecamp!!
