And details for the schedule of the competition (also going out as an email):

Judge and steward allocations will be announced on the day. All judging will take place in pairs, with each pair likely to judge 12-14 beers per session. Some categories will require a mini-BoS to decide placings from multiple flights.

In order to reduce the amount of paper that is needed, in this age of smartphones, full paper sets of guidelines will not be available (there will be some). If you have a smartphone or tablet and haven't already downloaded the free BJCP Style Guidelines App, please do so by following these links or typing bjcp into the relevant app store- iPhone version , Android version, Blackberry version, Blackberry Playbook version, ePub (Nook, iPad) version, Kindle version


Friday 12 September - Wiper and True, James Street, St Werburghs.

A number of smaller categories will be judged at Wiper and True from 5.30pm. If you are coming to judge or steward, we will begin at 5.30, with a view to judging starting at 6pm, and finished by 8pm.


Saturday 13 September - St Werburghs Community Centre, Horley Road, St Werburghs

Setup begins at 8. All those who are available should aim to be there as early as they can, so that we can get judging underway by 9.30. There will be two sessions. The first session should end around 12 noon, with lunch provided for judges and stewards. The second session will start at 1pm (or close to it with an end time of 3.30). Best of Show Judging will take place at 4pm, with awards announced by 4.30-5pm. Cleanup needs to be done by 9pm.

I'll try and make Friday (depends on traffic etc) and will be there shortly after 8am on Saturday. Should be a good day.

This year I think that I will finally develop an invisible cardigan and my project to extract gold from spiders legs will also reap great rewards.

Excellent. We have more judges than in the past, and we should be able to knock out quite a bit on Friday, so it should be smooth.

Hi guys,

Sorry to say, I can't make the labelling on Tuesday or the Friday judging session as you've managed to tie up with BRI shifts!

See you all on Saturday 13th if not before.

Several people volunteered at bcb the other night and the consensus was that Tuesday would be best for most people. It will take place from 5ish at wiper and true in the burg.

Many hands make light work and all that so please let me know if you are able to come and help. I'm sure there'll be beer in it for us somewhere.

Cheers

I'll be there, traffic depending i should make it for just after 5.

A late post but just want to say sorry for not being about to stewart / judge, thought I would be able to but had stuff out of my hands come up. I think I may be able to make it for the announcements but its looking very unlikely. :( Will all the winners be posted?
