The height was funny, but what really struck me was HOW LONG the stream kept shooting up. It seemed to just keep going and going and going. We laughed, cracked a joke or two, and then we were like 'okay, someone should really get on that'.

If a beer advanced to a mini Best Of Show round, WTF does that mean and when do you find out the results?!
I like club night when the clubs aren't beer dumping. If they only have five great beers, then serve five. No need to bring 20 when 15 are less than stellar. IMO I should not have to dump a club night beer because it has major flaws. YMMV.We're meeting the week before to taste all of the beers. Everyone knows those that blow won't be served at Club Night. Unfortunately we won't know the fate of the cask conditioned brews until they are tapped at Club Night.
On a somewhat related topic, does anybody else feel that it should not be against the rules to have the style number written on the caps? I leave it on in spite of the rules for two reasons: 1) it verifies that the cellar people don't mix up the entries I send in and 2) in every competition in this state, a label immediately goes onto the cap.Assuming the use of BCOE&M, for our competitions we print 3/4 circle labels numbered 1 through whatever. We use these sheets - http://www.planetlabel.com/labels/product/inkjet-laser/white-uncoated-3-4-diameter-circle1
I received my scores today and the sheets say I took second place in one category. Does this mean I'm moving forward in the competition?
I rarely bottle, but when I do, I have used German half liters - great strong bottles, but not permitted in the NHC. If Sam Adams is too light of a bottle, which commercial brewer uses a strong bottle as you have suggested?
