NHC Awards
« on: April 16, 2014, 09:24:22 PM »
Got the tweet that results were posted for my site,  I checked and did not place.   My score sheets were in the mail when I got home and one of the entries said it finished in 2nd place.   This is my first time entering, so I do not know what to think, did that mean 2nd in its flight?  It also said it advanced to mini-bos, but no results from that?  Any insights?

what was your score? it has to be at least 30 to advance.

well the posted results are the real results. it's possible your cover sheet was mismarked. you could try to contact the local organizer and see if they have any input on it.

While there is judging in the min-BOS that judging is not recorded on the judging sheets and cover sheet except as to the final placement of the beer in the category.

I suspect that you are correct that your beer placed 2nd in the flight, but did not place in the category.

thinking off the top of my head, I remember one time I had the same issue.  when I looked closer at the score sheet my beer was labeled "2" not that I had placed second.  The 2 was the identifier and not the place.  It was a local competition and I have not received my NHC score sheets yet, so not sure if this applies to your situation.

I had this happen last year, and unfortunately I found out too late that the coversheet with the "3" in Place Awarded was right.

...you're talking the bottom of the three big boxes with "2" written in for "Place Awarded", right?  NOT a coversheet with "Original Position in Flight: __2__ of __(whatever)__ "

just checking to be sure.

If so, I'd contact Janis and the site director.  I suspect each has copies of the flight summary sheets.
Personally, I think when you receive a coversheet that says you advance, you should advance, but I don't make the rules. 
Good luck.

Position in flight means 2nd beer those judges tasted.

I didn't say position in flight,  I said it says 2nd place, it was 5th position out of 14 in flight, thanks for assuming I'm a moron though

You miss-took my tone,  I can see how you did,  I apologize.   I was attempting dry humor,  I know you are trying to help, that's why I posted it here!

My other 2 entries in the competition had nothing in the place section, this one did, that's why I'm confused
