Check out the new ad. Big ups to all of the sponsors! Ghirardelli stepped up big at the Platinum Level. Java Jacket, DaVinci and Forza Coffee Company have joined in at the Gold Level. Pumpskins, Rattleware and Atlas Coffee Importers have stepped up as Silver Level Sponsors. Barista Magazine as Ad Sponsor, Sunshine Dairy as Milk Sponsor and Urnex as Cleaner Sponsor!
These companies deserve a huge hand for continuing to support this great event despite how crappy the economy is right now.
I wanted to encourage everyone to start sending in their Competitior, Judges and Volunteers forms as soon as possible! I expect a strong turnout for this competition so a timely response with your registration forms is much appreciated!!! See you all in Tacoma!! http://members.scaa.org/train/rbc/northwest/default.aspx
Just a heads up about the Host Hotel. First of all, the place is badass! And we got a smoking deal. However, in order to take advantage of the huge discount, you have to make your reservations by December 17th.
So, I'm glad the ball is rolling on this and all, but I still haven't heard back from the SCAA about registration. I was super jazzed that everything was finally being taken care of, but it's now 4 weeks away, and I haven't heard back from SCAA? I know that Marcus and everyone are swamped with so much other stuff going on, but aren't there teams of people running around there getting paid to do this? Is this normal for competitor registration?
