Default 2012 AHA National Competition, what did you enter, and are you going to Seattle?

I saw a thread about registration, but how about one to post what you have entered, and if you are making the trip to Seattle? Since the forum restricts poll questions to 10, I had to combine some categories, but could be interesting to see what we all brew and consider our "best" for the competition.

Me, the Colorado imperial red rye that I put on Red Stag soaked oak in category 23, and the pale ale I had on grapes and oak in category 10.

choice 7 should read 15, 16, 18

Our Canadian national championship is also our NHC regional. I will be putting in something like 18 entries: 1A, 1B, 1D, 1E, 2A, 2B, 4C, 5B, 5C, 5D, 8A, 8B, 9C, 13F, 14C, 22A, 22C, 23. Our regional does not (I believe) have the huge number of entries that are common in the U.S., and I'm sending some beers that I know aren't medal contenders just to support the competition. I hope three or four make it to the second round, but that might be aiming high.

I've been keeping track for the last 8 years on how many of which styles are entered. The one style that is really slumping are Scottish ales while Stouts are always have the largest amount of entries.
