I'll be there.  I think this will be my 12th.
I miscounted.  This will be my 14th NHC.
you have seen some growth and change.
Yes, but the more you go, the more friends you have.
My all time favorite was the Chicago conference because there were so many food and beer seminars.

Our first was Chicago, missed some years, then Denver and all since.

I'll be there as well. In the past there has been suggestion of a forum meet up. We should make that work this year.

I'll be there all week, so I am up for anything. When is BNA8? I would say another night the same week, before the conference really kicks off. We could also plan some sort of dinner on Friday night if one of the locals knows of a good place that won't hate us for having 15-20 some odd people all paying separately.

Unless the NHC comes to Boston or Providence it will be several years before I'll be able to make it to the conference. It was awesome having all the seminars online last year. Looking forward to everyone's talks this year.

This will be my first year going.  It will be great to meet all the people that have given me great advice on brewing.  Also will be there on club night (Covert Hops Society).

Driving isn't the issue, it's sneaking away from my wife and 2 year old for the weekend :-\

Boston would be great, but it's so damned expensive in June!!  I'm pissed that I wasn't homebrewing when it was in Manchester, NH long ago!

I'm cool with a forum meet-up, but I don't know about a forum hook-up.

OK Drew - thanks for the starters, let's see... My first was in 1997 - what a nob I was! Spent it in a haze.

1997 - Cleveland, OH
2000 - Livonia, MI
2002 - Irving, TX
2003 - Chicago, IL
2004 - Las Vegas, NV
2005 - Baltimore, MD
2006 - Orlando, FL
2007 - Denver, CO
2008 - Cincinnati, OH
2009 - Oakland, CA
2010 - Minneapolis, MN
2011 - San Diego, CA
2012 - Seattle, WA
2013 - Philadelphia, PA

So this will be my 14th NHC and my 12th in a row. Good fun, good learnings, good people. It's all good. Having a water bottle with me at most times (and drinking from it) was one lesson learned, taking power naps helps me as well. Jeff and Sue Rankert also taught me the importance of B vitimans (in the handy Propel powdered packets -easy to carry on planes).  Still haven't learned how to drink less than copious amounts at the Brewing Network parties, but otherwise I am learning...

Well Crispy...you got me beat by a longshot. Speaking of Longshot, I entered a beer in the SA Longshot this year again. This will be my third NHC. I was in San Diego and Seattle. Looking forward to more of the same great fun.

A forum meetup would be great!

I'll be the guy running around at club night, making sure everyone has enough ice and the like. :)
