Club Business
The DYS club elected officers for 2013 include:
    *President: Gene Nelson

The 2013 club membership is due ($25 for individual and $35 for family). The membership form is located on the DYS website. I don't think existing members need to complete the form, just pay dues to Zek or Gene at the meetings. Membership includes the use of club's: book and yeast library, equipment, and the private and members recipe forums. 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.

DYS is sponsoring a Sensory Analysis Training which will be lead by jimboud. The classes will be held on Tuesday, February 19, Tuesday, Feb. 26 and Monday, March 4 at 6 PM at Cajun Brewing. More info regarding the kits can be found at Siebel Sensory Kits and here.

It was discussed the Malt Munching Mash Monsters (MMMM) are wanting to organized the 2013 LA Homebrew Clubs Competition and host it at Cajun Brewing. However, this has turned more into a rumor and needs to be follow up on. We decided we would help any way possible or needed.

There is interest in organizing a club Crawfish Boil in may be 3 weeks. Will post info and a link when available.

Reminder to return your borrowed club library books when finished with them. Several people, including myself, have had some books out for awhile.
