Also, the AHA is something like 4-5 FT people, and Janis has other responsibilities including coordinating National Homebrew Day.

Again, I have no problem with the May 4th deadline, just the inconsistency of results being reported or not by the individual regions, busy or not.
But all people would be best served by prioritizing the 84 scores, getting those uploaded, checked, and published, and then focusing on the other 666 (HA!), don't you think?

There may be a compelling reason that all 750 scores have to be fully processed before the top 84 can be shared, so be it, I just don't see what that reason is.

This was my point. The AHA is not a huge corporation. They are not here to take your money and run with it. I think you all are forgetting that she still has to mail out all those silly little 'certificates' along with the first round ribbons. And she's busy with other AHA stuff. I think the last 4 times we've emailed, she's been out of the office on business trips.

Also, at $12 for what is essentially TWO competitions, I think this is a fair price.

I believe it is their intention to make all results (advancing or not) available via the online registration software to each participant ( I assume they mean their own entries, not that some guy in NH got a 13 on his scoresheet ).

Without ever seeing the process on how all this is accomplished, it's easy to say just publish the winners and do everyone else later. Again, my beef is with the NYC region holding onto scoresheets ( 3 weeks is more than enough time to send out sheets, regardless of how busy you are). It seems to me they are holding them until the AHA releases their results, even though it's been indicated to them by the AHA they should send them out ASAP.

Nice work! I don't know how you folks enter so many beers. I entered 6 and it was a pain in the ass with shipping.

Considering the average competition fees are in the $5-7 range this is accurate for the 10% or so that advance.

Unfortunately for the overwhelming majority of entrants (90%), this is not the case.

I'm in Pittsburgh, so I drove my entries, plus a bunch of other entries from guys in my club. Cheaper that shipping, that's for sure. If I had to ship them, I would have entered half.
