  3. Ned emphasized the benefits of being a club member; discounts at local shops and breweries; the opportunity to have your beer evaluated by BJCP judges; the Buddy Brew concept for new people or those wanting to change from extract to grain; our store, bulk buys, training; brew days and so much more.

  4. Ned pointed out that we have glasses and T-Shirts for sale – cash and carry tonight…

  5. Ned reminded all that this is a homebrew club and that members should be bringing homebrew to our meetings. He said the homebrew table looked fantastic tonight — great job everyone.

  6. 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,  PA system and soon a laptop computer.
