Going for Gold with Nick

Our MoE mentioned some useful podcasts in this month’s newsletter. Here is a great one on competing from 2016 AHA Homebrewer of the Year.

Bluebonnet Entries

If you are dropping entries off at the homebrew stores, please be sure to box your entries in a sealed box.  Do not drop off your entries in a 6 pack holder!  The stores will likely be moving entries around as more come in, and placing entries in a 6 pack holder is a good way to ensure your entries will be broken or lost.  Do yourself and the stores a favor and pack your entries in a sealed box with your paperwork enclosed.  On the outside of the box, write your name and phone number, Bluebonnet Brewoff and Box # of # .

Good Luck

Dixie Cup Shipping

Next Monday 9/18 is the packing party for the Dixie Cup at Dallas Homebrew in Carrollton.  I will be there starting at 5p.  If you need to pack entries, please arrive as close to 5p as possible since the shop closes at 6p.  As always, the club will provide packing materials and cover the cost of shipping the entries to the Dixie Cup.

If you have any questions about competitions, please email me at firstVP@nthba.org.  

 

Cheers!

Matt
