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 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 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!

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?

Do we have a booth number yet

Do we have a booth number yet?  Was looking at the Club Night Guidelines http://www.homebrewcon.org/events/club-night/guidelines/ and they do not provide electricity.  

  • Electricity is not provided. You may order electricity directly from the convention center once you’ve been given your booth number.

We don't have a booth number as of yet. I ordered electricity for our booth, so we'll have power. There is no wifi, so we'll have to set up a mobile hotspot. They're going to send an email with all the booth info at the end of the month and I'll forward that to you and Icehouse.

This really sucks, but

This really sucks, but because I will be traveling for work two weeks in May and another two in June and then be gone for another two weeks in July on vacation (Sweden!), I cannot go get to Minneapolis for this.  Very disappointing, I've enjoyed the conferences before but haven't been to one since Grand Rapids.

We have a place to live in

We have a place to live in Minneapolis thanks to Mark Walters and his awaesome AirBnB skills.  Mark, please post a link and how much it is per person.

We are going to go with the double wide booth.

We still need about 10-15 more gallons of beer.

We need people to brew on Friday June 16th at the brewhouse for the live stream.  Kyle N has volunteered to brew on the ToP.

What I reserved was a three bedroom - on the same block is also this listing -

I have not booked it- if one or two people want to - go nuts!

The same family also rents out two rooms in their own house.

Yes it is $165 per person for

Yes it is $165 per person for all 4 nights.  Payment should be made to Mark Walters.  I am waiting for him to get back to me on how he wants to be paid, but I imagine it will be Chase Quick pay or Paypal.

There are 3 bedrooms with 1 queen bed in each and common space with a queen bed, Julene and I are claiming one bedroom so that leaves 2 bedrooms and the common space.  If you do not want to share a bed with a fellow drunkard I would suggest air matresses

The plan as I see it now is to muster at the brewhouse at 0900hrs, load up the vehicles and depart by 1000hrs.  That should put us into Minneapolis around 1600hrs.  I will be at the brewhouse the day before to organize everything that needs to be loaded onto the vehicles in one area.  If anyone wants to help that would be appreciated.
