    "There is a limit of 600 paid entries."

    Is this the limit for the whole comp? I might register promptly then!

    For scope, there was about 450 entries last year in NSW and 550 in VIC
    Is there a chance it will go over 600? yes, is it likely? no

    Hi Peter, can you please clarify something with the AABC style guide?

    Category 12 (specialty IPA) specifies session strength is an option for specialty IPAs, but I can’t find anywhere that specifically allows session American IPAs (11.2).

    So I could do a session Belgium IPA but not American!

    Hoping a common sense approach would apply and American and English varieties would be okay?

    Thanks, Heath

    (Before anyone says, I know it’s almost futile entering a session IPA when the judges are having flights of IIPAs!)

    My reading of the AABC Style guide is that any of the defined Category 12 Speciality IPAs can be of session strength including a Belgian IPA.

    A session strength IPA in my view would be best entered as a Cat 5.1 American Pale Ale

    Cheers
    Peter

    The closing date is the date and time that you need to have your paid entries at the designated drop off points per the web site. Entry registration will also close at that time.

    On the website it says secure the printed label to the bottle with elastic band, on the label itself it says to use clear sticky tape all over it to attach to the bottle. Which is preferred?

    Also, it says 'All entries, clearly labelled (including completed entry forms printed directly from this website.)' Does that mean I need to write the name of the entry on there somewhere in addition to the printed label from the website?

    Thanks for your questions

    The label instructions take precedence - clear sticky packing tape preferred.

    No you do not need to add any information, the printed entry label QR code contains all your entry details

    I have changed the text on the website to "All entries, clearly labelled, using the printed bottle labels printed from this site, must be received prior to the closing date - Saturday 7th September 2019 16:00."

    Hope that answers your questions OK

    Cheers
    Peter
