New rules for NHC 2013

1. New entry cap. Each entrant may submit no more than 15 entries. Previously there was no maximum number of entries per entrant.
2. The addition of an 11th U.S. judging site.*
3. A requirement of two bottles per entry for all first round entries. This will increase the quality of judging by allowing for fresh bottles to be judged for winner selection in mini-best-of-show rounds.
4. More specific criteria for Ninkasi Award tie breaker. The introduction of an entry cap increases the likelihood of multiple entrants tying for points earned in the final round of the competition. The new tie breaking criteria will help to ensure the most qualified entrant takes the award.
5. Implementation of a new database and entry registration software. The 2013 NHC will use a modified version of the popular Brew Competition Online Entry Management program. This change will streamline the data entry process for competition site directors and shorten the time it takes to get data back to the NHC director, which ultimately should mean a quicker turnaround in communicating results to entrants.
6. Entry fee increase of an additional $2 per entry. The additional revenue generated from this fee increase will fund enhancements to support first round judge centers that are intended improve the judging experience.

Kansas City will be a judging site for the first time in a long time this year. Good year to enter as you can hand deliver your entries.

I was expecting a club rule that would keep the BN from winning club of the year again.

It is really hard to come up with a rule where The BN doesn't win but SPHBC or QUAFF did (when they did).

The last two clubs to win with points from a single region were DOZE in 2010 and Kansas City Bier Meisters in 2000 (QUAFF and SPHBC won the wons in between, TBN has won the ones since). Multi-region has been the norm for a while. Clubs who recruited out of region members shouldn't get too upset over online clubs that organically have members in multiple regions, in my opinion.
