Unfortunately, due to drama at my office, I've been super busy and haven't had time to brew and probably won't be able to until the 24th I do have 2 beers I could send but they would both be repeats from last time. I might try to brew a split batch with Kveik for my next brew and if they turn out good I can send them. Otherwise, I can just double up on my existing brews.

Considering I don't want to keep people waiting, I'm leaning towards backing out though. Let me know what you guys think. Worst case, I'll catch you guys on the next round.

We can keep the original time; however, I will not be available to run it (last minute work meeting). We will need a volunteer to run the remainder of this (paging people to pick, keeping tabs of the time, cleaning up the offers as they're selected, etc). Alternatively, I can run an earlier morning pick (9am PST / Noon EST). Sorry for the last minute scheduling issue.

Please hold off on sending a pick list until we figure out who is going to manage pick day, be that me or someone else : )


9/27/2020 - pick day starting at 6pm EST (3pm PST)

Each person has 5 minutes to pick (6:00 represents 6:00-6:05, for example), and I've included two 10 minute breaks to clear up the clutter in regards to which offers are left.

EST Time (PM): Member
6:00 Beerwildered*
6:05 aharri1**
6:10 DrGMG
6:15 TwistedGray**
<break: remove selected offers, repost remaining offers>
6:25 camonick
6:30 wepeeler
6:35 RCope
6:40 3 Dawg Night
<break: remove selected offers, repost remaining offers>
6:50 fourfarthing
6:55 Atlantatopher
7:00 Dgallo

*@beerwildered You get the pleasure of running FotHB XIII.

**Note: The randomizer image shows me as #2 and aharri1 as #4. I re-ran the names a second time so that someone else could have second position (inspired by @Thorrak ), and I swapped with the person who had number I got (as long as it was not #1 or #2).

Whatever we're going to do, we really should make a decision in the next couple hours so that people can plan accordingly.

@Atlantatopher - it's simple enough. Basically you just tag the individual, when their time slot is ready for them to pick, and you do that according to the time schedule I posted.

In the interim, copy that entire offer list and throw it into notepad or something, and as the offers are selected delete them from the list. Then at the breaks you can just copy and paste the remaining offers into a post.

Let me know if that makes sense. If so, I will forward you the one pick list that I received...along with my own.

Andddddddddddddd if you do decide to take on running the remainder of this round, everyone ought to cut you a little bit of slack considering it's your first one ; )
