Brew Club Minutes for 8 Jan 2011 Saturday, Jan 8, 2010
The meeting took place at Ferd's place.
Jerry, Jim, Jack, and Pat.
Theme for this meeting: "Have a Porter from Porter Rico"
Special Report: The Stout Contest:
There were 2 entries in the stout contest, Ferd and Jerry. It was close but Ferd won the day.
1. Treasures Report: $253.65 in the Bank.
2. Old Business:
Jerry is going to get with Steve at
Northern Ales to insure the grain order goes in soon. There was a small
problem with getting the 80L crystal or something like that. We will just
get something close.
The Hop Pellitizer / Plugitizer
committee has reported that it is too expensive and impractical.
The fine for wearing not appearing
at the meetings in official Brewing Rabble garb is now in effect. $1 per
incident and $2 for club officers.
The Okanagan Fest-Of-Ale is on 8 & 9 April this year. The club will make its annual appearance on the 8th (Friday) as usual. Get ready. http://www.fest-of-ale.bc.ca/
3. New Business:
We agreed that Ferdinand should
officially petition the Puerto Rican authorities to change the name of the
island to "Porter Rico". This in honor of Ferd's outstanding porter that he
was serving that day. Not too be confused with his Stout since "Stout Rico"
sounds like some kind of personal invective.
The next meeting will be on 5
February at Northern Ales in Kettle Falls.
Ferd will check out Sand Point and
Laughing Dog for our March meeting.
There is a May Wine Festival in the
Okanagan which we will be looking into.
We cracked a bottle of the Barley
Wine / Imperial IPA we made at the November meeting. A huge success. Bottles
are being stored by jack for future distribution. Better get to the next
several meetings before it is gone.
We collected dues for the new year
Jerry $20, Jim $20, Ferd $20, Pat $20, Jack $20
In addition we collected T-Shirt penalties as follows: Jerry $2 an Jack $2
We ended the meeting and reopened a
special session to elect officers for the coming year.
Election Session: Officers for 2011 were elected as follows:
Joel (congratulations; you still owe the club $20)
