I spent 150+ hours on it, and Ohiobrewtus probably has 40+, Some wonderful HBT friends judged, held it at their own homebrew shop, etc, as well as perfect strangers giving time, energy, effort. Our sponsors donated prizes.

No way we'll ever do it again. Not a chance.
40 hours? Holy crap, woman, you have been deceived.

I have? The judging, organizing, and and standing for two days by a scanner? The emailing of flights, etc, and you haven't even counted any hours for the second round or organizing? How many hours would you say you spent/will spend by the time it's over? I assume both judging Saturdays are 8 hours each, of course! And Thursday, Friday Judging for the first round.

Ya know... I did this already. I started a new thread asking for volunteers that were semi-local to me. Thousands of people on this forum and my turnout was 1 guy that drove 2+ hours from Michigan and one guy that drove 2+ hours from NE Ohio. Both of them are great guys that I hope to have the chance to meet again and actually sit down and enjoy a couple of pints with, but I'd *guess* that there are at least 500 HBT members within a 3 hour drive of the competition site, and I heard from 2. TWO.

Technically I heard from a few more than that, but they heard about the competition through SODZ (a homebrew club in Columbus, OH), and it wasn't until later that I found out that they were HBT members.

I haven't been keeping track, but 40 hours seems to be on the extreme low end of any estimate that I would give.

Having said that, I knew that it would be very time consuming when I signed up for the job. I also knew that it would be less time consuming than dealing with all of the questions from the entrants.

Dear Yooper,

I have not yet received by 15 gallon Blichman brewkettle. Please remedy this oversight ASAP.

One way of sending those PDFs might be to upload them to e.g. Google Docs and then share them. Then they aren't clogging up your inbox.

Actually, my company makes a product that would be perfect for this kind of thing, but I cannot just set up a bunch of accounts on our public server for my homebrewing friends on the internet.

Oh, I knew it would be time-consuming, too! The last comp took up about 80 hours of my time.

I'm surprised I'm guessing at the extreme low end, but in my defense, I did say 40+!

The great thing about HBT is that I like to think that we're all friends, and accessible to each other. Unfortunately, this comp has made me need a time out after it's over. I'm very tired. Very tired.

I got beat up badly by a manufacturer of Cooper's kits, because I called the prehopped LME/bad yeast "lager" kit garbage. Mulitple harassing PMs (over more than three days) which have only ended due to another mod stepping in, PLUS this comp and the multiple emails/PMs, PLUS working, PLUS trying to be a wife, mother and grandmother PLUS moving twice during the comp, etc about did me in. I'm not sure how much more I can take. It may be better for me to take a break from this once the comp is done.

That's about all I can say.

Damn.. good thing I can get my own score sheets!

FWIW, 2nd round is looking like 8 judges and 2 sessions. I'm still working on getting a certain Grand Master V judge who is within a 2.5 hour drive to attend... which would obviously lend quite a bit of *oompf* to the results, but I can't make any promises, as NHC 1st round is in Indy the weekend after, which explains why I'm having problems finding the judges I need to get everything done in 1 session.
