    I thought that to, but the fine art of the compromise comes to mind.
    Interesting , not too far from either Newcastle nor Sydney, beats the 3 hour commute to the last state comp.

    You have got a few months to work out the good drinking holes in Gosford.

    Barely matters. Just hope people support it, brew for it, come along and judge, steward and talk beer and brewing. Will be there if able.

    Thats right Mark, we wanted to make it as practical as possible for judges from Sydney and Newcastle to get to the venue for an early Saturday/Sunday morning start. The venue were quite accommodating and allowed us access for a few days beforehand.

    That's great, two days of six hours traveling on top of a day judging can get pretty old pretty quick!
    Hand up for judging and anything else that needs doing - just ask.

    I'm not complaining, it's much closer for me, I can drop my entries off in person.
    Gosford show ground is a bit out-of-the-way, that's all.

    Know you ain't a complainer. Sounds like you are local (well compared to me, anyone north of Wollongong is a local for this event.) So, find out the gst drinking holes in Gosford, my man.

    As much as I would love to talk up our local venues.... The closest would be Six Strings Brewery I think in Erina. Their Double Dark Red IPA is wonderful... but I wouldn't rate anything in their range under 5%ABV... they are a bit pedestrian

    As it is, I should be good for both days, and I know the CCB member are keen to help in a comp in our own backyard

    I have, but 2 of my taster paddle had some form of infection:( I haven't been back.
    I understand they have quite a few nice beers, but I just have that memory sitting in the back of my head.

    Foghorn wouldhave been the place... if they were still open in Erina. Great food and not a bad drop on their 8 taps and 1 hand pump... I cried a little when I found it was closed

    Hi Tom,
    There is a comp website under development which will list the rules, entry categories and drop off locations, watch this space.
