Wife is deploying to Afghanistan all summer so its the perfect excuse to go.
Screw that.....let's brew one and enter it. What do we have to lose? We'd have to brew it very soon......like this weekend, since I'm going to be gone until May. It's a good excuse for a road trip, if nothing else!!

Beers for the NHC have to be entered between April 4-15, so there isn't even time to get one brewed and and finished by then. Plus, honestly, it doesn't even interest me in the least. I know my beers aren't even close to the level of these.
I'm just interested in going, that's all.

damn dude! don't sell yourself so short

if you do decide to enter one, try a smaller competition and work your way up. you'd be suprised at how good your beers compare. when i went to my 1st homebrew club meeting last month, i was a little nervous about slinging my sud's around with some of those guy's. they are 1st place winners of several competitions. they loved it. i had several of them saying i needed to enter my Rye P.A. into an event. that's kinda what got me to thinking about doing it, 'cause i never had cared to before.....

have fun in Baltimore! you lucky dawg.......

I have entered a few comps some time ago, and have judged at a couple. I am not a certified judge, but they asked me to judge anyway. Entering a comp is a good way toget feedback, especially if you don't know anyone who knows much about good beer, or won't say anything negative because of fear of hurting your feelings.
Orrelse, let me know if you're going to Baltimore for the HB Conference, I am attending and will be serving beer at either the Hospitality room or at Club night, maybe both.
