When it comes down to proposals will they include a most likely date? If extensive travel is required it helps to know the date as far in advance as possible and the date might influence the voting. cheerstevo

In my brief experience, dates are included. The breweries/bars involved would most likely want to have these things on their calendars well in advance, as well as making it possible for those traveling to the event to be able to plan accordingly.

My back yard again, a-la the very informal RBWG 2009 (aka Chunk & Patriotís Lick-Yo-Face-Off Throwdown)?

Highlights from that tasting:

- The first mass consumption and rating of Purple Possum Habanero Mead
- My Boston Terrier Patriot repeatedly face-raping mgumby10 and other participants
- Dickinsonbeer homebrew aplenty
- Some of the very first batches of CCB stuff, growlered by Degarth himself
- Northernbrews out-drinking EVERYONE....how he was still coherent at the end of the night, I have no idea


Iím ready for another round :) Next time I come down Iím definitely booking a later flight home though....only getting about 3 hours of sleep after drinking hard for 15+ hours was a little rough!

I can write a Jax proposal but I donít know that anyone would be interested, especially if Orlando or Tampa are in the running.

Iíll echo that. Thereís always SOME enthusiasm from a lot of cities, but very few actually submit proposals. So work on a proposal and at the very worst, youíll have a great template for future events.
