Eh - if you'd forgotten for an hour you still would have missed it. Servers were hosed, and then they were full.

Thanks for making me feel better.

Do they ever take additional entries at judging centers that might not be completely full?

From what I'm gathering from the little bit the AHA has released, they're going to sort out what they currently have after all the technical disasters. Once all the currently registered beers are accounted and verified paid for, remaining entries might be moved around from overfilled centers to different ones. And I'm guessing only once every registered entry is accounted for (whether paid for or deleted for lack of payment), only THEN will they open it back up for new entries. But they said they won't be deleting anything until they get the payment situation sorted out.

So there may still be a shot. But I don't know when it'd be. "A business day or more" is their wording, so who knows. And even then, I wouldn't hold your breath.

So how do we know their system won't keel over again when they re-open it for the remaining spots and there's another mad rush?

To be honest, with how overbooked some of the centers got, I'm doubtful there's any space left. I suppose it'll depend on how many drop for non-payment.

You know I was one of the lucky ones and got two beers in. First time entering the NHC but I have entered quite a few local/regional contests. Honestly though what makes the NHC so much different than any other well established BJCP comp? Do all these brewers really think they are going to win the Ninkasi? Like I said this is my first time entering the NHC so I will see how it goes but so far I seriously doubt I will enter next year.
