All in One: Digital Scales/Timer/Temperature

Went to a Trivia Night on the weekend and did a silent bid on this appliance. I got it for $25 but it's probably worth a bit more RRP.
It's a Breville digital scales unit that runs off a 9V battery. It also has a timer built in. And low and behold, it's also got a digital thermometer wand that plugs into the same unit. All the kinds of things brewers want in a kitchen device! I'll let everyone know how useful it is on the next brew day if it turns out to be worth it.

ANHC

Anyone planning to go to ANHC this year? I really enjoyed the last one, but I'm not sure if I can afford the $380 full conference package.

I'm considering just buying the the Gala dinner ($120) and club night ($40) tickets. I know the gala dinner sound expensive, but if the quality is as good as the last food and beer pairing dinner I'd say it's worth it. This will also be where the nationals prizes are announced and presumably Bayside willl be collecting a lot of them ;p so we should have at least a full table to represent the club...
