Entry Acceptance Rules
Number of Bottles Required Per Entry: 3
The cost is 75.00 per entry. We request you send three bottles, if you send bottles smaller than 10 oz (300 ml) each, please send four. We prefer 12 oz beer bottles as they are easier to stack, store, and handle. However, we will accept whatever bottles you send. Once again, sending only two bottles will not provide enough mead for the category and the BOS judging rounds. If one of the bottles breaks during shipping, there is no guarantee there will be enough for subsequent medal rounds. Three bottles ensure enough mead for a medal and BoS if your mead progresses that far. Don't be that person who misses out on an award because you did not want to send enough mead. Also, remember that the BOS judges will be five to six judges!
You are limited to 10 entries per meadery.
Entry bottles accepted at our shipping location from Monday, September 18, 2023 7:00 AM, CDT through Friday, October 20, 2023 7:00 PM, CDT.

Packing and Shipping
Carefully pack your entries in a sturdy box. Line the inside of your carton with a plastic trash bag. Partition and pack each bottle with adequate packaging material. Please do not over pack!
Write clearly: Fragile. This Side Up. on the package. Please only use bubble wrap as your packing material.
Enclose each of your bottle labels in a small zip-top bag before attaching to their respective bottles. This way it makes it possible for the organizer to identify specifically which entry has broken if there is damage during shipment.
Every reasonable effort will be made to contact entrants whose bottles have broken to make arrangements for sending replacement bottles.
