We have our club meeting next Tuesday the 8th at North Texas Homebrew Supply. We only have 4 members running for the 5 officer positions. We need one more member to run for a position for the 2023 year. The Officer job is not difficult and does not take much of your time. We would like to see some newer members with new ideas come help run the club.

The ballot for the vote at next week’s meeting will have a write in line for the 5th candidate. Please consider running for one of the Officer roles.

The Club’s forums are available for discussions. We have not had many posts. Please ask and answer questions in the forum. Subscribe to updates for the forums that you are interested in.

Update to Club Meeting This Evening

Greetings, and sorry for all the updates this morning. We will try to spread them out when possible, but lots going on in the next few weeks. Yesterday, I posted about the events this week HERE. I omitted that for our club meeting, Odd Muse is welcoming homebrew for sharing tonight in their brewery where we will be meeting. If you have anything you would like to bring and share, please feel free to do so.

Very nice of the folks add Odd Muse to allow us this, so please also support them through purchases of their beers and tipping the staff appropriately.

If you have any questions, please contact me at [email protected].

Cheers,
Smitty

Club Meeting Tonight and Website Notification Changes

There is a club meeting tonight at The Londoner in Addison. The meeting will start at about 7p, folks arrive starting about 6:30p. The Londoner is at:
14930 Midway Rd
Addison, TX 75001

The method of notifying members of new WordPress posts changed today. We now have an opt-out model. You will be included by default. If you do not wish to be notified of new posts, please email [email protected] and we will switch you to the non-notified users. But the best way to stay up-to-date on club happenings is get these notifications.

I am also interested in what you think of the format for the notification email. The notification is customizable. I tried to make the notification look like the old notification method.

I hope to see you at the meeting tonight!

Cheers,

Jimmy
