NHC Updates
« on: April 13, 2010, 03:55:23 AM »
OK, So I'm new to all this competition stuff. I saw someplace that at least two regions maxxed out the 750 entry limit. My question is - is there any ever info posted about total # of entries, # entries per category, regional results/scoring and stuff like that? Or do you just have to wait to be notified if one of your entries makes it past the prelims?  It'd be interesting to see how the categories are represented from region to region.

Thanks for any insight.

If not there needs to be now so that adjustments can be made.

Certainly cant have areas like the mid-West and Northeast maxed out while another region is sitting at 500

After all the regions are done judging (2 are on the weekend of April 24-25), and the results are submitted and verified, results per region will be posted.  The results are first through third in each region, which advance to the finals.  You will get your score sheets mailed to you.  If you advance the AHA will contact you with information on the next steps.

Good Luck!

Thanks for any insight.

the first round results will show info like:
for each category: number of entries, top score, low score, median score

you can compare those against each other from region to region

the final results do show how many entries in each category for the nation - last year it was about 330 or 350 entries for IPA and Stout, American Ales were up there as well and the rest went down from there (stout may have been like 370?)

the first round results will be posted after all regions have judged and submitted their reports, there are still a couple of weekends worth of judging to go, so the results should be up the first week of May

if you place in the first round you'll get an envelope from the NHC containing 2nd round bottle labels for your beers, they'll have new registration numbers so don't use extra labels from the first round, that envelope will have all the mailing info, but it's probably on the comp page somewhere

For us uber compgeeks, there's also an independent who for the last several years has complied all of the stats you mentioned to help everyone make sense out of it all. Although, these stats are totally "unofficial" & "unapproved" ...we are forever indebted. ;)

It's nice to know when your nationally ranked.
