Events / Re: NHC 2013 Entry Problems - Possible Solutions?
« on: February 27, 2013, 05:42:13 PM »
I think many of the solutions here are good, including bumping the per beer/entry cost. I also wonder if it's possible to make the competition tiered by region. I'm in theater and this is the way the KACTF works. Everyone competes in his/her region and the winners of the region advance to the final. Then you have no crush at all.

Also, for those people bemoaning the fact that they logged in late: it made NO difference. I logged in at 3:06pm, registered (after fighting they lag times); and then experienced a continual succession of 503 errors for nearly :30 mins when I tried to add a beer/entry. I then gave up thinking I'd come back in a while and add my beer. At 5:28 it was full. 

This was a wholly inadequate system for what needed to be accomplished.

Cleveland, Ohio

Just sent a bottle of tap to Ward Laboratories in Kearney, Nebraska. The water report is as follows:

pH   7.5
Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) Est ppm   170
Electrical Conductivity, mmho/cm   0.28
Cations/Anions, me/L   3.0 / 2.7
Sodium, Na   10
Potassium, K   1
Calcium, Ca   35
Magnesium, Mg   10
Total Hardness, CaCO3   129
Nitrate, NO3-N   0.3 (Safe)
Sulfate, SO4-S   12
Chloride, Cl   13
Carbonate, CO3   < 1
Bicarbonate, HCO3   97
Total Alkalinity, CaCO3   80
Flouride, F   1.14
Total Iron, Fe   < 0.01

I’ve heard that the profile for Cleveland water differs in winter from summer. So, I may have to send off for another report later this year.
