Club Business
Houston We Have A Problem - ACA is planning to hold this years Gulf brew on the same weekend as the Dixie Cup, October 19, 2013. We have asked ACA to move the Gulf Brew date due to several of the DYS members and majority of LA homebrew clubs will be at the Dixie Cup. However, it sounds like it is the only open date for them. Most likely, there will be less participation from LA homebrew clubs for the Gulf Brew 2013. We decided to notify ACA that DYS will participate in Gulf Brew 2013. Everyone will still donate homebrew and the DYS members not going to the Dixie Cup are going to set up the club table and serve homebrew.

We introduced the idea of creating an Event Coordinator position in the club and would be a board member position. Anyone interested in the position or has questions can find details on the forum (link found above). We will announce the nominees and vote on it, as a club, during the July meeting. Additionally, the event coordinator will need a group of individuals to help occasionally with volunteering at the club events. Just volunteer with the event coordinator or respond on the forum.

We are starting to organize a [url=needs link]Booze Cruise (will provide a link when one is available and more information)[/url]. We are thinking of renting a van or similar with a designated driver and going to visit a couple LA breweries and bars. The club will not be paying for this so there will be a fee for a seat on the bus.

Cajun Brewing has some individual 0.5 and 1 lb sacks of German Hallentau hops to give away. Details can be found on the DYS Forum.

Grain for the Club Bulk Grain Buy is in.
