Probably right.  The allotted time to pay is 24hrs...right?

Yeah, after 24 hours they're automatically deleted.

I suspect a lot of people registered entries they might send in and will end up deleting them when they pay.

Yeah, there may be some of that.

I'm not sure if they expire exactly at 24 hours when they were entered or if there is a batch purge that runs at midnight or something.  We shall see

If more regions are added I imagine the cost per entry will have to go up, which would probably also help keep the numbers down.   If prices get much higher I'll likely reduce the number of entries I submit

wow, it would seem likely there's a lot of unmet demand here (I didn't enter but considered it - definitely next year!), but I wonder how much more growth can they have and still finish the final round in 1 day?!?

hopefully I can at least steward in Seattle and watch the Masters at work.   8)  Can't wait!

If it grows too much, they'll have to break the first rounds into regions, then a semi-final round, then the finals.  March Madness of Homebrewing.  Can you imagine what that bracket would look like?  ;D

I would think it would have to get bigger and go more rounds. otherwise how quickly you can get to your computer at entry time will begin to play as big a part in who wins finals as how good your beer is. or go the mcab route and have other contests act as qualifiers.

That's definitely a concern.   People also ask about increasing the number of first round judging centers, but we can barely find enough judges for the number that exist now.

That's been discussed and unanimously voted down by the Governing Committee as being to exclusive.

Should make for an awesome selection show.  Paint an awesome Anthony Davis-style unibrow on #1 seed Gordon Strong, with us lowly #16 seeds just happy with our play-in game.   ;D 

Hopefully some place like Tulsa can host the 1st round next year.  FOAM has experience with big competitions.  Dallas didn't work with proximity to Bluebonnet, but March/April isn't anywhere near the FOAM Cup timeframe.

Saw Gordon at a the WEB competition judging this past weekend.  Someone asked if he had entries in the NHC, and he smilled and shook his head no.  At least that is what I remember.
