Yes, I understand the amount of work, coordination, and planning that goes into regionals (and any other large competition for that matter).

And I have also been on the end of some regionals (in the past) where lack of judges showing up came into play and extended judging times had to be used.

Just seems rather odd since for two weeks now results have been "verifying" in Philadelphia when all others that were judged have been reported.

I was in Philly for judging Friday and Saturday two weeks ago.  They could not finish due to a shortage of judges.  My sense was that it was a matter of fewer judges signing up rather than no-show judges.  I don't have direct knowledge of the current status, but there has been chatter on the AHA's NHC Facebook page.

Thanks for the reply. Figured it could be something like that.
We were short handed in Tampa this year (I will not put the blame entirely on Jeff for not coming ;)).  We only managed to finish on time by giving the judges bigger flights.  Instead of an average of 8 beers in a flight we probably had closer to 10 or 11.

Had fun last year. Maybe next year? We might push our spring trip all into April, and maybe HBC will be earlier in June, making first round earlier in March.

We hope that is how it works.

Jeff, I saw you took a first place in Indiana.  Nice!  I love Belgian Single.

I got one of two entries through this year (Dunkel) and will be re-brewing tomorrow.
