  1. Ned requested a moment of silence and a quick prayer in remembrance of 9/11.

  2. Ned asked if we had any new members:

    5. Mark – from Seattle – West Coast IPAs

  3. Ned reminded all that the Iron Brewer event requires everyone to participate as a judge – it is people’s choice – more to follow.

  4. 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.

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

  6. 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 good – but not as good as last month; however, the Iron Brew looked fantastic..

  7. 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 a bit sparse, but improving.

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

  9. Membership report: Ned announced that we have 128 members in Meetup.

  10. Treasurer’s report (LandyBrew): $2,190; that $700 ws given to the Nick Brunettii fund and that $500 was given to the Black Forrest Fire Department. So roughly $2,100 is available to support club initiatives, such as buying a laptop computer or portable PA system.
