Still waiting on NHC Entry email.
« on: February 11, 2016, 10:44:32 PM »
Is anyone else still waiting on their NHC entry email? I applied to the Philly site (plus 2 back up sites) and I've yet to hear if my entries were accepted. I know that the emails were staggered this year but its been a few days and I'm getting a little worried there is a problem. I've tried contacting the Comp directors but have yet to hear back. Thanks for anyone's insight.

Thanks, I've seen a lot of Nashville, St.Louis and Indy. I wonder if they are being sent by the competition dates?

Thanks for your question, cytorunner.
If you haven't received the confirmation e-mail telling you how to login to the 2016 National Homebrew Competition (NHC), rest assured that we are still trying to get all applicants into the competition.  Everyone who applied during the week of February 1-7, will have communication from the AHA by February 17th.  Thanks for your patience.
Cheers,
John

February 17th? But what about this post saying that you have to pay by February 12th? Tomorrow!

This is from the email I got

"Entrant notifications are being sent in staggered groups, but if a large number of entrants are attempting to access the software at the same time you may experience slow speeds. If this is the case, you may come back later to finish your entry payment, so long as it is completed by the deadline of 11:59 PM Eastern Standard time on Friday, February 12."

You have to pay within 3 days of getting your confirmation. In that case, and in my case, I got notification on the 9th. I had to pay by the 12th. If you get your notification tomorrow, you'll have to pay by the 15th. This is all in efforts to not big the system down. They've learned from past mistakes and the new process is working so much better. I've not encountered any web glitches or didn't have to refresh 18964 times just to try and get entered. You'll get your email.

Yep. No worries. I didn't encounter any issues or delays when editing or printing labels either. That was the point of staggering people.

Well, here's what I'm worried about.

I got an email saying, "Thank you for your application to enter the 2016 National Homebrew Competition . . . " and thought I was into the lottery. But now I'm looking back at a later email that says, "Verify Your Application Details Before Sunday at Midnight Mountain Time . . ."

So, was I suppose to verify something and f'ed up by not doing it?

Getting pretty late. Are they done sending out emails?

I've consulted the higher ups. Stay tuned please. It'll get figured out.

Today is the 13th. John Moorhead says all who applied between Feb 1-7 will be contacted by the 17th. So nothing to be worried about. Patience.

No problem patiently waiting until the 17th, but still a bit worried about what I posted above.

Once I got an email saying, "Thank you for your application to enter the 2016 National Homebrew Competition . . . " was I suppose to verify my entry?

I verified mine since that's what the email said to do.
