I still have not received my email.  Starting to get worried...
Check your spam folder
Maybe try calling them?

Got two going this year. I noticed that Nashville isn't on the site list this year which is where mine went to in the past. Philadelphia was a bit closer this year but alas, it shall be Florida. Someday I hope to have a reason to attend the final awards ceremony other than seeing friends winning, but it's all good  ;)

Never received a reply, check spam folder but no luck.  Received an email yesterday (2/14) morning saying that the payment deadline had been extended and would I like to pay.  Heck yeah!  So I'm in for Philly.

So, Philly's my first choice, NY second. Threw in Seattle as a last chance hail Mary. Got my acceptance to Seattle last week and paid.

Got to wonder how you got into Philly this week after thinking it was full. How many entries?


edit to say, not complaining, happy that I got in.

My  buddy just got an email advising that he did not get in.  Apparently they hit capacity this year.  Really bummed for him.

That's surprising since I got the 5 I asked for, but maybe the regions they selected were full.

I hope there is a list of these names kept, and they are added to the list of people guaranteed spots (competition volunteers) for next year.  If almost everyone gets in, it shouldn't happen to them twice IMO.

So since I haven't received an email telling me I'm in the competition yet, I guess I didn't make the cut. However, I haven't received any email telling me that I DID NOT get into the competition either. Anyone else in this boat?

As far as I can tell my friend is in the same boat.
AHA - this is where a quick daily status would help. "Still sending out some confirmations" "payment deadlines extended" "all confirmations have gone out; we were able to accommodate 9X% of entrants"....Etc, etc.

Communication.

Try going to https://www.brewingcompetition.com and logging in with your email address and AHA number.  May not work, but worth a shot in case your email never made it.

I got the rejection email late yesterday.  I was running a fever from the flu, so it was very well received.

I've definitely noticed more people talking about getting rejected this year than last. Either interest went up or something in the process changed.

Interest is up. One key thing to get in is to list all sites as alternatives.

Participate in first round judging or stewarding if you can, that will get you preference for next year.

Exactly...Nearly all of those rejected that I've seen/talked to so far only listed 1-3 sites for shipping options.
