I haven't received an email yet and I judged at NHC last year, so they're definitely not done notifying people.

Hi all,

Relax.  Really.  The e-mail notifications are being sent out in staggered groups so that not all 3000+ entrants start hitting the site at the same time.  If/when you get your notification, please log in and edit your entry slots to reflect the homebrews you are entering.  When you have finished editing, I suggest you pay for your entries, since the payment has a time limit on it. 

If you encounter slow response on the competition site, consider leaving it until later to try again; you'll have 3 days to pay the entry fees.  You may edit the entry style, name, additional brewers, and special ingredients until the end of the entry deadline, March 17.  If you do make additional edits, be sure to print the final version of the bottle labels to send to the competition.

Also be aware that this is not a mobile app, so you should be logging in from a computer or laptop.  In addition, you may have problems if you use an older version of Internet Explorer as your browser.

Good luck in the competition!

Cheers,
Janis

Can we just ban Internet Explorer already? The BCOE&M version we used for our comp isn't compatible with it either. I lost count of how many entrants sent me emails about how it forgot their password and wouldn't let them reset it only to find out in was an IE issue.  ::) Stupid IE.

Janis, could you report on the typical number of entries that brewers were able to get in? I only entered one, so I was pretty sure to get it in.

IE11 is the current name of my IT existence. I used to support it, but MS changed so much on 11, that it's not even rdcognized as IE by sites anymore. Kinda humorous to have Outlook telling you that your browser sucks, and try IE when that's what you are using...  Lol. And to make matters worse, it's forced down through updates. Grumble grumble.

The article said everybody who got in gets 4 entries. (Less if they asked for less)

And I'm sure Martin judged last year so he should definitely be in.

Where's my email?!?!?!?!?

Hi Martin,

I can say that the average number of entries requested when the choice was 1-6 was 3 in some competitions and 4 in others.  I don't think that really answers your question, but it gives you an idea.  For the random-pick lottery, people requesting more than 4 were capped at 4 and those requesting fewer got what they requested.

As a volunteer in the 2013 NHC, you were sure to make it in this year regardless of the number of entries (up to 6) you requested.

Good luck in the competition!

Cheers,
Janis

The registration and payment went off without a hitch for me.  The only issue I am noticing is where I choose where I want to judge.  I don't want to judge in Chicago (where my entries are going) I want to judge in Zainsville... How can I register to do that?  The form only lists the Chicago judging sessions.  Thanks.
