I don't think silvers made it to round 2. I had 3 silvers but nothing that made it to the next round.

I think that the silver cut-off is 30 and that is the minimum score to move on, but you still have to take 1-2-3.

There are two types of awards. Ribbons are awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and any beers that place with at least a minimum score of 30 move on to the second round. Gold, Silver and Bronze certificates are also awarded based solely on score whether they place or not. At least that's the way I remember it. So you can get a Silver Certificate, yet not advance to the second round. That happened to me with one of my entries last year.

Exactly. One more point and I'd have scored 30 and qualified to move on to the next round, never said i would have. Though, I think if not for the oxidation, I would have had a shot.

I would assume that a beer that scores 29 with a fair level of oxidation is a very good beer otherwise. Just the oxidation would get you into the 20s on most score sheets so I am guessing the judges found no other faults or stylistic problems.

I got a gold certificate last year on a beer that didn't place. That same beer got another gold certificate but took 1st place this year.

It makes me happy to know they scored it as a good beer, but frustrating at the same time that picking the wrong bottle might have been the difference between contending and not. Oh well, it's on the list to brew again and will be sent in again next year!

You get certificates independantly of advancing or not, it is based on points. In each category they pick the top 3 beers in each region and advance those to the finals, that is not based on points but is a Best of Show style selection process.

A minimum score of 30 is required in order to advance to the final round regardless of whether the beer placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd.

From the AHA site:

"How National Homebrew Competition Works

Winning entries that score 30 or above from each of the NHC First Round regions receive ribbons from the AHA and qualify for entry into the NHC Final Round competition. The Final Round judging takes place on Thursday, June 17, 2010 at the National Homebrewers Conference being held in Minneapolis, MN this year. The winning entries scoring more than 30 points in the ALES Home Brew Open also advance to the NHC Final Round competition in June. The brewers of the winning entries in the NHC Final Round are awarded medals and fabulous prizes at the Grand Banquet & Award Ceremony on Saturday evening of the conference. The 2010 NHC Rules & Regulations (PDF file) are now available."
