Yes.  Vote and tell your homebrew clubs/friends to vote as well.  Everyone has a stake. Everyone has a say.

I reiterate my perpetual campaign promise - I will buy any AHA member a beer at Club Night at NHC!

That's a deal!  ;)  :P  :)

I was really surprised to see how many candidates there are! 

I think that all are good candidates who would all do a great job, so I know it makes choosing tougher.

Bummer. Sorry to hear you didn't get in. Glad you exercised your right to vote though.

I took the time to read through the candidates' statements, and was somewhat disappointed with the sameness in all of the responses. A few took it upon themselves to update the NHC (which I don't care about), others touched on the legal difficulties associated with homebrewing (applause), but most did not differentiate themselves from the pack.

I would have liked to see one maverick post something like, "Too long we have been joined at the hip with the BJCP and their nobbish ways, and we need to expand our ways of looking at beer and move the NHC into the 21st century!" But I suppose that isn't going to happen, so we should just keep on keeping on.

Sort of like Bertie Wooster voting for the next Grand Poobah of the Drones Club.

So my girlfriend walks into my office while I'm working today wearing this shirt she made up at cafepress or some other such site... She's going to both be a billboard for me and embarrass me at the same time on our upcomign road trip to Minneapolis to drop off our NHC entries....
