MD tnx I just voted for you.
Rusia is not that close, but closer.
Again I have questions about number of judges, BJCP or NON BJCP.
In this part of word only few beer categories are widely popular, and I expect that APA and IPA will be majority of entrance.
If I expect 150 entrance, lets say 40 IPA and same number of APA, while rest is all the other beer styles.
Can I use few judge panels to judge 40 IPA (lets say 4 judge panels -10 entrance each panel to judge) or I need one same judge panel for all 40 IPA's - in few days?
Thank you all
I think there are plenty of places to hold the conference, but the issue is the behind the scenes work which is handled by the host club(s). For instance the conference could easily be held in Charlotte with side trips to many local breweries and a pre-conference party bus to Asheville, but it would tax the clubs in NC to almost the breaking point. CBM in Charlotte has a large membership, but they put on a beer festival every year in the autumn for charity which sells 5K tickets and in May they host their homebrew competition. I just don't see them having enough gas in the tank to handle all the logistics of the conference immediately following their comp with their festival coming up a few months after the conference.
I don't actually know everything which goes on behind the scenes, but I'm told all the volunteers still pay for the conference despite many never seeing anything other than the room as they deliver beer from the central cooler. I'm not sure how other organizations do it, but it would seem to me if there was a means to not burnout while hosting the conference there would be many more places who could host.
Mike, if you think it's that easy, you should run for GC.
are we gonna see you next June in Minnesota?
...It's time Jim.
Did we just give away next year's location?
"It's not a secret" - someone from AHA, like 6 weeks ago. I'm sure there's a possibility that sales could be hurt slightly if news of future locations came out too early, so I haven't said anything publicly until their discounted hotel period was over. *shrug*
This will be my 10th conference and I have yet to have a bad dinner experience.
