Yeah, the hotel executed poorly on the pretzel thing - it's unfortunate, but still a 1 out of 4 miss on dinners the size of these banquets is pretty damn amazing. (And even if the pretzel dish didn't score as well as his previous dinners - that was far and away not even close to the worst I've had at an AHA conference)

Yeah I was left with some egg on my face after the Philly meal... Kept telling my friends how great it would be... then that overcooked pretzel thing came out...

My wife and I are pretty discerning diners.  We didn't think our "pretzel thingy" was over cooked.  I did, however, have low expectations.  I thought the banquet at my last conference (Minneapolis) was mediocre at best.
Well...I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer

Well getting the application in was pretty painless... Except I couldn't remember the girlfriend's BJCP number ;D

I notice that they will print your club name or company on your badge if you want.

Anyone considering also including the AHA Forum name for easy identification at the Conference?  Mine is the same as my Brewing Network forum name, so it would serve a dual purpose.

It was rather easy.  Now we wait.  Didn't think about forum name, as I only put the club name.  Hopefully we can get a running tally of those attending who are on the forum.

Anyone have a problem getting the form changed from 1 to 2 to get an extra banquet ticket?  My wife is not a member but will attend the banquet with me, but couldn't get the form to change.

A change this year, ALL attendees must be AHA members.   I signed my wife up with a household membership for this reason.

Each member applying to register may request ONE guest registration.
Additional registration fees are required for a guest.
All guests must also be members of the AHA.
A valid 9-digit AHA member number for each registrant and guest will be required.

I had no problems. Maybe try a different browser.
 
And as bonjour said, she'll need to be an AHA member. You'll also have to pay for full registration for her as the banquet is only for conference attendees.

Wow.  Did not know that.  Thought I could just pay for a banquet ticket for her since she doesn't want to join AHA.

it's unfortunate, but not really a new thing.  They haven't had ala carte banquet tix for a while.  I asked about them both last year and the year before.  And, as long as we've got a huge conference with more than enough attendees to fill up the banquet, I admit it makes sense.

That's becomes a pretty expensive dinner ticket.  If I get drawn, I will probably have an extra banquet ticket to give away ...

With a few days left for conference registration, can the AHA tip its hand yet and say whether a lottery is inevitable or not.
