Windup BBQ – Last Meeting of the Season

Hey Everyone,

It’s been another interesting year with the Pandemic. I’m very happy that things have started opening up again and we’ve been able to meet up in person. I’m even happier to be able to do the end of year BBQ again!

The June (final) meeting of the season will be pushed back to Friday July 8th at Half Pints. This will give everyone a bit more time to brew their club kit for the competition and for the judging to happen. The prizes for the comp will be:

  • 1st place: $75 GC to G2G
  • 2nd place: $50 GC to G2G
  • 3rd place: $25 GC to G2G.

The drop off deadline for the comp is June 29th @ 6pm. The drop off location will be at Grain to Glass. When you drop off your entry make sure to provide two bottles that are labelled with your Name, email address, and a short description of what you brewed. Your entry will be removed if you don’t have that info. Also, you are only allowed one style entry. Meaning if you split your batch into multiple styles you can only enter one style. As usual, we’ll sort and anonymize the entries for the judges so it’ll be a blind tasting. 

The executive have talked it over and we’ll be doing a BBQ pig roast this year. The BBQ will still be pot-luck so there will be a sign up for people to bring sides (so we don’t all bring potato salad). At the BBQ we’ll be announcing the winners of the club comp as well.

The BBQ is open to both free and full membership levels and you can bring a guest. There will be an RSVP link on our website posted soon. This is required so we know how many people are coming.

I’m hoping to see everyone at the BBQ.

Cheers,
Sean.

Tonight’s Meeting @ Oxus

If you didn’t see the web site post or the facebook post, the in person meeting RSVP form is live. You can sign up by logging into your account on the website and going to Member Area -> Member Events (same as before).

To attend you must be RSVP’d on that form.

Tonight’s meeting at Oxus (at 7pm) will primarily be a social event, so be sure to bring your home brew!

Cheers,
Sean.

Tomorrow’s Meeting and Email Issues

Hey Everyone,

For our mailing list, we’ve hit a snag with the new provider. They only allow 50 emails per hour to be sent The extra emails get deleted and not sent. So that renders our mailing list useless as most people don’t get them.

So I’ve setup a google groups account and migrated the mailing list there… however, there’s a limit to how many new addresses you can add per day… ugh…

So tomorrow I should hopefully have the last of the members added and can start emailing everyone again.

In the meantime I’ve opened the registration for members once they log in.

Cheers,
Sean.

New Web Hosting and Email Server

Hey Everyone,

Just a quick note to let everyone know that we’ve officially migrated to a new web hosting provider. I think I’ve got all the bugs worked out now and everything should be fully functional. But just in case there are issues, RDWHAHB and let me know via email.

I’m also excited to be using a new mail server. Hopefully this one doesn’t routinely get blacklisted and the emails actually land in most people’s inbox now!

Thanks for your patience.

Cheers,
Sean.
