The Pub / Re: Drew's Weight Loss
« on: March 18, 2016, 10:41:17 AM »
How about we set up an AHA Experimental Weight Loss Group, and we worship Drew as our Guru and Deity, and we pray to Him for guidance? And we make a pledge to lose x amount of weight through scientifically sound experimental methods. E.g., the first week we only eat bananas and after that week we measure the collective weight loss. Second week, only quinoa and Brussels sprouts, and we measure again, etcetera and so forth.

Couldn't we just do liposuction instead?

It looks like you can go onto the registration page off of and click the "already registered" link below the Firstname, lastname, email boxes and then click the link to send the confirmation number if you wanted to be sure.

I called and checked this morning. Everything is cool. Still don't know what the hell happened to my confirming email. A buddy gave me the link for the hotels (I know he wasn't supposed to do it), so everything worked out fine. Just the old conference adrenaline/anxiety rush.

Yeah, mine went into my spam folder.
After waiting for a couple of hours for the confirmation email, I checked the span folder and there it was.
Of course, by then the Hilton was full.
So, I booked a room at the Marriott.

Nope, checked my spam. I probably worry too much, but I still worry.

I registered for the conference at noon and never got a confirmation email for the link to the hotels (A buddy sent it to me). I got a confirmation number for the conference. So I guess I'm registered. Did anyone else have this happen to them?

I have not been able to find a picture of the offending T-shirt though.  Can someone direct me?

Truth be told, it's too boring to be offensive.

You ol' dinosaur you! I suddenly don't feel so alone. Still irrelevant, just not alone  :-\

You can only become irrelevant with your permission.

I'm not going to NHC, but I agree on the shirt.

When is the Denny-version of the shirt coming out?  8)

I think we'd all snag the Denny shirt in a heart beat.

Like many others, it's still Homebrew Conference, not Con to me (The same way # is a pound sign). I love my collection of NHC T-shirts and wear them proudly. Does anyone think this year's commemorative T-shirt is god-awful lame? Is this really the only 2016 NHC shirt that the AHA will be selling? Please say it's not so.

Has there been any word about the host hotel in Baltimore? I'm assuming its in the inner harbor.

Love FWH! Most seem to think the IBUs can be approximated by plugging in a 20 minute boil value. Hot side aeration is a brewer's myth, BTW.

2 Gold x 6 Points, 1 Silver x 4 Points, 2 Bronze x 2 Points = 20 Final Round Points
Magic Algebra = 65 Total Entries

Now how can that not be the "NHC Champion Club" or whatever we're going to call it? Most final round points, tiebreaker is final round points per entry, and from there you go to the pie-eating contest or whatever it is they do for Ninkasi now.
Texas death cage match.

At this point, it's probably the only fair way to resolve it. The PPV $ could probably finance the next conference.

What's in Tampa other than Cigar City and that chain restaurant bar?  ;)
There are 3 CCB related properties (the brewery, brewpub, and cider and meadery), Tampa Bay Brewing, Coppertail, Dunedin, Rapp, 7venth Sun, Cycle, St. Somewhere, and Green Bench, just off the top of my head.  ;)

On a scale of 1-10, how serious is the humidity in Tampa in June?

It's tricky - keep it where it is - it interferes with some end of school. Move it back, you run into father's days. fun times! There's also the question of hotel availability - as you move deeper into summer, it's harder to get rooms.

No matter when the NHC is held, someone is going to be inconvenienced.
