Been too busy with Med Faire to comment (lucky you):

All for that--I'd like to see it elevated to the status of the Kingdom
Bard...but Someone else would have to do that. 8^)

Also, like to see that. I suggest about every three months keyed around major
events (e.g., Steppes Warlord, Stargate Baronial, etc.) basically spread
throughout the year and the kingdom.

I think we should for two reasons: exposure and organization. It takes no small
effort to establish anything at a kingdom level but it demonstrates our
dedication. Also, it gives us a starting point for identifying our numbers,
their locations, resources, and specialties; and, standardizing the competition
I know that "standardizing" gets some folks hackles up but it is nice to be able
to prepare an entry that doesn't take complete re-invention for each event. It
will also ultimately allow us to improve the overall judging.
I also a proponent of using the Interkingdom Brewers Guild judging forms... best
way I know to get some of our brewers prepared for their entries at Pennsic.
My two cents,
Go to http://lists.ansteorra.org/lists.html to perform mailing list tasks.
