      It’s that time of year, that I need to start planning for BBD. Again, I would love to offer to host this annual event at Red Arrow Hobbies. If there’s no objections, I would like to start the planning and hiring for this. Hope to see all on May 4th.

      Thanks Dave
      that sounds like a plan.
      let us know if you need some help.

      I wonder if Chuck could whip up a flyer
      that we can pass out.

      Thanks Dave! That sounds good to me.
      Let’s wait on the flyer, and use the one the AHA provides as we have done in previous years.
      If we are going to try to organize a competition let’s do it in a separate dedicated thread, and keep this one general to make things easier to keep up with.

      Most of the planning and arrangements don’t need to start until late March early April with the exception of the bands. One of the bands this year will be the Ellwood Splinters Band. The contract should arrive in a few days.

      Soon I’ll need help with organizing any compitition, food, etc. I may rent a flatbed trailer for the stage, but if not I’ll need a few folks to assemble the old one.

      If anyone has any suggestions for this years event, please post them.

      :any1 :cheers :thanky

      I think it’s time to start looking for a source to design and print some flyers or post card sized announcements of the event that we can spread around to brew pubs, craft beer stores etc. Does anyone in the club have a good source or ability to do this? In the past we just printed out 8.5 x 11 flyers on our computer, but I think postcards may work better.

      Chuck or Dan if you can work with Dave up at Red Arrow.
      269-429-8233 I’m sure we can use the AHA’s flyer to some extent too.

      time to bring this back up front.

      maybe we can get a sign up sheet going on who’s brewing.
      and who would like to bring some food to share.

      hey MEGA-BREW!!!!!:any1 only a small handful signed up to brew beer on a NATIONAL HOLIDAY!!!!!

      if you want to or plan to Brew, or not Brew, but plan to be there
      please sign up on the sign up sheet.

      Dave is a little worried that no one is coming to see the 3 Bands
      he has lined up to play ALL DAY long….:fans
      this is being advertised all over so we expect a fair turn out of Public
      to come see us brew and talk shop.

      I always plan on feeding the brewers from breakfast on. This year looks way too easy. Only 4 brewers! If you are brewing and want free meals for the day, please add your name to the sign up list. This is how I know how much food to plan for. I can’t guarantee to have enough for others that don’t sign up.

      Thanks Dave,
      I know there will be a few of us that are not brewing on our own systems.
      but will be brewing on Dave’s Big rig for the IPA comp.if that helps any.

      on an off topic subject….
      is there still an outlet for the Spent grain we’ll use?:any1
      no reason to toss it out if we can make a few pigs happy…..:agree

      Local weather report says partly cloudy and in the 70’s for Saturday.:cheers1
      Because of predicted rain on Friday, we built the stage today. The new one has almost twice the room as the old one and sits about 3 feet off the ground. We did some work and cleaning on the big barrel system. Porta potty will arrive tomorrow and I’ve come up with a outside wash station if you need to clean up with hot water. I still haven’t figured out a menu yet. I was hoping to provide something different for breakfast, but may have to wing it Saturday morning. Maybe I’ll get time tomorrow to come up with something concrete. Looks like we’ll have a better then average turn out.
