    Entries can be mailed in?? But they close on the 28th?

    Pretty sure Australia Post doesn't work that quickly. hahaha is the admin even in Australia?

    Free if you are a registered member. Well, the cost of postage (within Australia)or Supporting membership. Your choice.

    I had to register to log in.

    The post and continuing posts are ambiguous.

    The closing date for posted entries is VERY unrealistic for Australia Post
    I know you Americans have a pretty decent postal system that will take a couple of days at most, but here in Australia a month is not out of the question if you live outside of bigger regional hubs
    I'd highly suggest extending the closing date

    Even if you live in the suburb next door it can take longer than the 10 days there is to go in the competition

    I think it's worth noting that it appears to be keg king setting the time table not AHB, and one would think that keg king would know about our postal service, sooo, either something fishy is going on or someone is too stupid for words. imho ;)

    I do love a good conspiracy theory, but this aint it. What I would like to know is "Whatever happened to Whatever happend to the likely lads"

    GRMBLz what is your problem with Keg King? We are a bunch of people working hard to bring good products at reasonable prices to the home brewing community. Will you speak with me so I can find out what rankles you so? More than half of our staff are brewers who put all their efforts and passion into making and supplying what home brewers would like to have. Talk to me and lets sort this out.

    Hi guys great idea! Don’t worry about the cynics!
    I won’t be entering however - I don’t enter competitions & I’m happy to pay for what I want.
    Love the Guten Conical by the way!
    Cheers

    Thank you for letting me know about that. We will be extending the mailing in time, and overall entering time by several days. I am consulting with Keg King for a date. It will be posted today.

    Actually I set the time line as usually 2 weeks is enough time. Keg King contacted me about extending it and that will be done today. We are looking several days into October. The exact day will be posted soon.

    Well that's a shame, joined up so I could enter. I havnt sent a letter for probably 20 years, buggered if I am gunna start now.
    I am sure I seen something about a free to enter comp where AHB gives you 200 bucks to spend at any of the advertisers stores? Can a more experienced member provide a link or was I drunk and dreaming?
    Cheers Snakes

    If you are fair dinkum about being a member of AHB why not contribute? Can't see what you have got against those that do.
