I went through the registration and I forgot to add a beer. Is it best for me to go through the registration again?

if you just register again with the beer you had forgotten, the other ones will already be in the system.

Yep - there should be. The plan is to use local clubs as drop points.

Just while I'm on. Are there many people planning on entering the comp. who haven't yet registered?

Would be good if anyone who's still thinking about entering would post here so that we can get an idea of how many entries we'll be looking at...

Thanks!

Think I'm going to enter a couple.
Everyone has to believe in something, I believe I'll have another drink...

I might enter, have a beer that I only bottled last week so will have a taste in a couple weeks and see if I think it's worth it. Is there many places left?

Also, do we need to be in attendance for the event to enter a beer?
