Club Business
The nominations for 2012 elected offices include:

    *President: Gene Nelson
    *Treasurer: Zeke Bossley
    *Veep: James Lutgring
    *Secretary: Jimmie Cox
    *Librarian: Steve Seymour
    *Sgt. at Arms: Julie Nelson

The club is still taking nominations through December for the 2012 elected offices, which will be voted on by the club members attending the January meeting. Any member can nominated someone or themselves on the forum at Nominations for 2012 Board of Directors

We will be meeting up at Marcello's this Saturday for AHA Learn to Homebrew Day. We will be doing all grain and extract brews. Anyone is welcome to come and brew too. There will be some Pumpkin Ale (from at least 3 club brewers), Pumpkin Porter (club extract), Amber Ale (BIGALE), Gruit (club all grain), and hopefully Oyster Stout (if the keg can be found). More club details can be found at: AHA Learn to Homebrew Day.

The club is taking suggestions on any new club equipment. One suggestion has been to build an Electric RIMS, which could be easily checked out by any club member. The Electric RIMS should be portable and flexible enough to be used with cooler or kettle mash tuns. The Electric RIMS would need to be approved by the club members if we want to start building it this year. Another suggestion was 2 propane tanks, which have been bought and approved in the 2011 Budget. Work to finish up the DYS Glove Box has been scheduled for the end of the month and all the needed parts have been allocated.

The DYS is a non-profit educational organization and all donations (including membership) to the club are considered Charitable Donations on the 1040 Federal Tax.

The December Meeting / Christmas Party will be held at the Cajun Brewing (206 Rayburn Street, Lafayette, LA) and not at Marcello's. Marcello's gets too busy during the holiday month to let us take up the back room. Some club members are asking to move the Christmas Party to Saturday December 3, 2011 so we can relax a little longer with friend and families. In addition, it has been suggested we try to do a Pot Luck for the Christmas Party. Voting (poll at top of page) and Pot Luck List can be found on the forum at:2011 December Meeting / Christmas Party.

Yeastmeister did a presentation on Iodine Vs Gravity, which reviewed BYO and Basic Brewing Radio mash conversion and iodine test and DYS refractometer test.

I believe Steve's last name is Seymour.
