I've had a beer score in the 20s and then go on to win BOS at a large competition. Also had a beer score in the 20s then place 3rd in the NHC 1st round then place 1st in the NHC second round.

I would not put to much stock in a single score regardless of what it is. If you are interest in feedback it is better to enter the same beer many times than many beers once. You'll converge on a consensus with enough scoresheets.

The scores themselves are hard to interpret. Some judges are generous, some are harsh. New judges tend to be afraid to get too far away from a 35 in either direction and lump everything around there.

I haven't seen the KC results up there yet.

Unless this was in the past, I thought that NHC was one of the few comps where placement/advancement DID require a score above 30.

I got my scores in the mail today from KC.  I have not seen them posted in entry site, or anywhere else yet. 

On a happy note - got two through (Dortmunder and Mild) :)

20s in a different competition, third place in the first round with a score over 30, first place in the second round.

Mild placed 3rd

Dort placed first, which surprised me a bit. Just hoping it would make it through.

Ok, that makes more sense.

I had a Düsseldorf Alt score 40, but either didn't advance, or they didn't write the placement on the score sheet. Did mark of mini-BOS though. I'm happy with the score, but disappointed that didn't come with a placement. My Weizenbock scored 34. Wish that was a little higher, but it's not a terrible score.

Anyone know the status of judging in NYC?  I was there judging on Saturday, but I know we didn't get through all the categories.  There was talk of finishing the judging that night, but I don't know if that panned out.  I had to get on the road back to CT before I could find out any more details.

Hey all, I'm the KC NHC site director

too bad the voting didn't last one more week...your and your team's excellent performance in the First Round might have gotten you more Governing Committee votes.  or maybe you didn't need any more.   8)

thanks for your hard work--
--Michael

Yes, I sure could have used the extra votes!  Got an "I regret to inform you" email from Jake Keeler yesterday.  Maybe next year?  I hear, third times a charm?

According the NYC coordinator, they should be mailed out at some point next week.

Has anyone heard if the score sheets for Nashville have been sent out?  I only ask because their competition was last weekend, although I believe they may still have a few categories to finish up.

Thanks

It took over a month to get Music City Brew-Off score sheets back, IIRC. I think the same club is running the show for the NHC.

just spoke to the person I know won Category 9; his cover sheet wasn't marked either.  I think it's pretty safe to say you finished 3rd/should brew that 70/- again.

I know it wasn't directed to me, but unless anyone's got any special information regarding category 7 to tell me otherwise, that's got my hopes up if other finalists didn't have their sheets marked.
