Brew Bros of Pikes Peak (BBoPP) General Membership Meeting Minutes

11 June 2013

Approximately 40 members attended the June meeting held at The Brewer’s Republic, the second floor roof was reserved for us. Flanders called the meeting to order at 18:15 by thanking the hosts for their hospitality and reminded all present to buy a beer from the bar and to order food (neighbor facility).


  1. Ned requested a moment of silence and a quick prayer for our BB living in the Black Forest.

  2. Ned reminded all that this is a homebrew club and that members should be bringing homebrew to our meetings. He plans to start a “shame on you campaign” for those who do not bring homebrews and there will be a separate raffle just for those who do bring homebrew.

  3. Ned also reminded all that the raffle is how the club makes its money to support its members and often to buy new items such as the projector screen, projector, digital thermometer, etc. and that recently the raffles have been sparse. He plans to start a “shame on you campaign” for those who do not bring raffle items.

  4. Ned asked if we had any new members:

    1. Ty – 3yrs brewing – favorite changes with the seasons

    2. James – Loves brewing with friends – favorite is Imperial Stouts

    3. Graham – with Josh

  5. Bowling Shirts – go to the BBoPP on-line store and commit
