BN Army wins club of the year.

(1/8) > >>

I read BN won the club of the year how'd that happen?

They had enough medalling entries in the first round and second. There's a club , self-organized by the listener base that is a properly registered club with the AHA.

The advent of online clubs back a few years ago led to a rule that limits the number of points an organization can accrue from all regions to the maximum they could from a single region. (e.g. the points for 1 gold, 1 silver, 1 bronze). Then the second round works as it always does.

This is probably as good a place as any to ask this... What's the consensus on this forum?  Is it fair for the Brewing Network to have it's own club (to compete for medals)?  I've tried to see if similar arguments are going around, as I believe that this is the second year in a row they've won.  I don't care about them being a virtual club, or anything like that, I just think that the BN radio show gives them a huge platform to gather members.  I know they're a properly registered club... but that doesn't require much effort, does it?  My club got registered pretty easily, if I remember correctly.
Just trying to see what others think...

Yes, being a virtual club and having the radio show gives them a huge platform for gathering members.  On the other hand, if you had a club of 40 members who all entered beers you'd have a pretty good shot of winning club of the year too.  It helps a lot if they make good beer of course, something they could learn to do by listening to the BN shows . . .

I don't know what other people think, but I'm happy for the guys in the BN club.

So far, I'm only seeing support on various forums FOR the BN Army, and no real dissent... There was a blog post from JP, complaining about them not getting enough applause when they took their award...
