    Is vicbrew unusually close to aabc/anhc this year?
    If you're a winner in Vicbrew2018 how do you have time (1 day?) to get your entries in to AABC?
    Doesn't Vicbrew usually go for two days?
    Two of us here happy to volunteer to steward as well!
    Cheers,
    the Budgerians!

    Gents (& Ladies!!),

    Bumping this, as we need hands-on folks (Judges & Stewards) to make this work. Currently, we're lacking the numbers to achieve the goal.

    We need YOU to CONTRIBUTE, or else it doesn't happen.

    Sitting-back on your arse & expecting everything to happen & get your beers evaluated without the bodies to do it is an exercise in abject futility/stupidity.

    Stick your hand up, turn-up, drink beer, talk shit with like-minded geeks & have some fun.

    Bump!

    Entries close next weekend, so get 'em in early.

    Once the pick-up is done, you're outta luck.

    Entries get picked-up from the various locations on Saturday morning, so it's best to get them in before that to avoid disappointment.

    Sorry to ask a stupid question at 11th hour, but any suggestions on where a RIS might fall in AABC 10.4 Imperial Stout or other? Cheers in advance. Dan

    Got 3 entries in, first comp in a few years for me, I forgot the level of anxiety and impatience that comes with entering comps..

    Wont be able to steward this year unfortunately as I love that gig.. highly recommend getting involved if you have never done so, it's an easy love job and you get to try so many different beers (that score well), have enjoyed every single one Ive done.

    After the penultimate Vicbrew Committee meeting last night, it looks like we'll need a couple of extra bodies if folks want to front-up.

    Judge/Steward? 'Can't guarantee either role, but just sitting-in with a panel of judges or serving it to them is equally rewarding. It'll make you a better brewer either way.

    Trust me......Judging beer may appear to be like watching paint dry, but Vicbrew is FUN!

    Thanks, Dan. We need folks to front-up & make this happen as a team-effort between the judges/stewards.

    After the 2015 nightmare, without bodies, it just won't happen.

    Currently looking at a team of 10-12 stewards for each day. If we're running multiple categories at the same time, even with with queued judging, it's going to be tight.

    BTW, 578 entries at last count - biggest ever.

    Hmmmm, that is quite a few more than last year.

    If anyone wants to volunteer, your help will be appreciated! Remember you get to drink as you work!

    Outstanding.. big field, I expect that Barrel Aged has expanded significantly over the last year or so.. tough table to judge but a great one to steward :overhead:

    Count me in.

    Have filled in the form to help out on Saturday.

    Happy to Steward.

    Bit nervous about judging having never formally done it before. But I'll give it a crack. Hopefully I get any way style I'm familiar with.

    Can't wait.

    Anyone else missing a scoresheet, I wouldn't usually worry but my missing score was the average of the other two which placed me 3rd equal or forth? Not sure how count back worked their?
