    Hi All,

    Pale Ale Mania is here for the 17th time (first run in 1999) and we need your help.

    Please enter, come and spectate, help out by judging, or stewarding or other dogsbody work.

    As you know, we are one of the smaller clubs and don't have a large number of members to tap into, so we really rely on our colleagues to help us out when we put this on each year.

    http://www.worthogs.net/pale-ale-mania

    Entry form and information flyer are found at the above link.

    Event is being held at:

    The Windy Mile, 69 Main Street Diamond Creek on Sunday 7th August.

    We will begin judging around 10am. Entries can be left at participating home brew shops by 12pm the day before. There are no entries on the day. If you can't leave your entry at a participating home brew shop, you can contact us and arrange to leave it with one of our members.

    Entries are a flat $5 each, and entries are to be submitted on a paper entry form, attached to your beer. Bottles must be in a single bottle of minimum 500ml capacity.

    We do our best to have the results completed and collated that night and uploaded to the web as soon as possible.

    If you can help us out on the day, please contact Paul Bowlen, or email worthogs@worthogs.net. Your support of this event is greatly appreciated.

    Just reiterating that we're also looking for judges and assistants on the day. We are not a BJCP certified competition, but you can still use it to gain some experience.

    How do we pay our entry fee? Just strap some cash on the bottle's side with the entry form?

    Anyone else who wants to help out, please email me at worthogs@worthogs.net. We could still do with quite a few more assistants. I will contact people this week to confirm what's happening, but we will be planning to start just after 10 AM.

    Hi Mxd,

    Keg King is not a drop-off point, someone accepting there would need to have organised to bring them up to us by the Saturday. I believe it's been confirmed that the entry left at Keg King was being passed onto a designated drop-off point.

    We're happy for places to accept them, but they have to get them to us. We really are only a small bunch of people and can't get around to everywhere.

    Speaking of which, we're still looking for judges/stewards etc for the day to run smoothly. A few days to go and we're not quite there yet.

    Please send me an email at worthogs@worthogs.net if you want more information, or to volunteer your services.

    Thanks
    Sarah

    Hi Folks,

    I've unfortunately stuffed my knee & can barely walk atm & was the ONLY confirmed Steward for this event(!??).

    Having Judges is all very well, but without Stewards, things grind to a halt rapidly. It's not a huge comp. & one well-organised Steward could possibly handle it alone ('though they'd be absolutely flat-out solo).

    Please rally-round the Worthogs & get there to help-out & make the event a success.

    Cheers,

    Martin

    Thanks Martin,

    Yes, we always struggle to find enough people to run the event as smoothly as we'd like. We will somehow manage, because we're really proud of our event and want to put on a great show, but it's always a stressful few weeks beforehand trying to tie up the loose ends. Certainly if people know they can help out it would be absolutely awesome if they could confirm this as soon as possible after I send out initial requests.

    Looking forward to getting underway in the morning and pulling it all together again. We will try our very best to have the results collated tomorrow night and publicised online. If not, I don't know when we'll manage to get to it :eek: because, you know, life and stuff!!

    However, we may not get scoresheets scanned and sent out until at the latest, Wednesday.

    Rest assured that we will be hard at work getting it done for everyone, I know how eager you always are to get your results as soon as possible. Manual we may be, but we are also dedicated!!!

    :icon_chickcheers: :party:
