Holy moly! Just got the latest edition of Zymurgy, and talk about a proactive response to the NHC entry problems! WOW. That oughta fix it, and if it doesn't no one can say they didn't try. It's a 180 degree swing from previous registration, a bunch of people spoke up and they listened!
6 entry max
AHA membership required
lottery period for entry
judges/stewards/organizers from previous year NHC guaranteed entries.
I hate to see the lottery in there, but I'm pretty sure that the other three items will make take away the need for the lottery in short order and may even raise the 6 entry max number over time. Hopefully the lottery will be able to be lifted.
Thank you AHA for getting in front of this, I look forward to entering what seems to be a much more fair competition this year.
