To Andrew and Ross,
I have contacted the organiser of the Queensland State competition and will have details when answered.
First this is a competiton for NSW brewers to enter and winners will qualify for the National competition held this year at South Austrlia.
Any brewers living outside NSW can enter but will not qualify for the National competition.
If you want to enter all your beers to be judged to the latest BJCP guidlines feel free. We will judge them and send you the feedback and score sheets for each beer.
As set in the rules only NSW brewers will win prizes and qualify for the Nationals.
It's your competition, and you can run it however you wish. Qualifying for the Nationals is fair enough, it is after all a State comp for qualification into the Nationals. However I do think it's a bit weak to take $7.00 entry fee from out of staters and not give them the benefit and glory of being able to hold up their first place prize to their family and friends! Out of curiosity if I win first place in the comp what happens to the prize?
Just nail out of Staters..Simple..No entry, no money, no prizes
But lets introduce State of origin brew comps!!! NSW V QLD at Seagulls RSL(Is it still there??) VIC V SA !! on the Border etc et all. VIC V NSW at Albury/Woodonga(is that right??).
We already have 2 National comps...Let make it 4 SEASONAL COMPS summer, winter, spring and Autumn. Or Christmas, Easter,Queens Birthday w/end and Octoberfest,...what ever
The more we have the easier it will be to run them(get on a platform) with the cooperation of more clubs/groups(do we have the population to make it work?)
mebbe the next morph of AHB????
Sorry for the hijack....mebbe mods can move this to a first of a new thread for ideas(did it myself)
WOW the soapbox is smoking, I better get off
Just a bit of fluff to bat around
