NHC June 15-17 2017 Minneapolis

Rob (Icehouse) and myself are starting to plan CHAOS's annual trip to NHC.  This year it will take place in Minneapolis from June 15-17.  You need to be a member of the AHA to be able to buy tickets to the event. Registration opens on March 7th @ 1000hrs MT.

Hombrew Con website; https://www.homebrewcon.org/

You can sign up to the AHA here; https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/membership/join-or-renew/

We are asking members to brew beer for the Arc de CHAOS for this event.  So we are looking for at least 10 5 gallon batches.  Brewers choice as to what you want to brew.  There is a link to a spreadsheet at the end of this post.

We also need a least one more volunteer to drive to the event to help transport our booth equipment and beer.  Myself and Julene will be driving along wsith Rob in his truck.

Nancy has posted about taking Amtrak there and back.  She will also be running the FastRack competition again this year, if FastRack has it.

We are also trying to co-ordinate accommodation so if you are planning on attending please put your name on the spreadsheet as well as if you will need a hotel/airBnB with the group and if so how many.  Mark Walters has been great in securing AirBnBs for us in the past and I hope he will up for it again (hint, hint).

I think that is all for now.

My blue truck has lots of space for equipment and beer but minimal space for humans - I can really only haul one sidekick to and from Minneapolis.

If they offer club night

If they offer club night tickets to non-members as they have previously, please post here.  I would be interested in possibly going to that.

Are we not going to ship the

Are we not going to ship the equipment like we did to San Diego? It would be a shame if Rob and Bill had to spend convention time dealing with shipping and receiving.

If all the kegs and equipment

If all the kegs and equipment fit in Rob's truck, that would probably be less hassle than shipping.  I'd volunteer to help load and unload.  

For BJCPers, they usually have an event immediately prior to the conference, the day before, I haven't looked or seen any emails about it, but will share when that happens.

Thanks to Bill and Rob for organizing us for this - it is deeply appreciated!

I'd really like to go. Seems like a 50-50 shot if I can swing it. When do you need confirmation?

I'm still up in the air about NHC depending on my work schedule. But if I'm forced to stay in Chicago for work, I'll brew too... let's call me a willing alternate.

This event is going to hit us

This event is going to hit us before we know it and I'd like to get started on scoping out lodging options for our group. So far we have 6 heads in the market for a place to stay - any other folks want to make homebrew club history and get in on the hotel/Airbnb?
