Club Business
Thanks to all those that organized and attended Gulf Brew and Learn to Homebrew Day. Both event were nicely supported and we were able to provided some great beer and educate regarding homebrew. We signed up several new members due to these events and their interest in homebrewing.

The club is taking nominations for elected offices and can be posted on the forum. Zek needs to step down as the Treasurer so we need a volunteer to fill this position. We will vote at the January meeting.

There is no December meeting at Marcello's due it being their busiest time of the year. Instead, we will have a Christmas Party on December 7th (Saturday) at Cajun Brewing (206 Rayburn Street, Lafayette, LA 70506) and will start at 6 PM. It is a potluck event and we are asking people to bring a dish and some beer to share. Justin will fry a turkey. Info and comments can be found on the forum

Tattoo-mama (Sarah) and Brewmeis (Chris) are working on organizing a Booze Cruise. It is planned to be a local pub crawl and / or stops at homebrewers homes. They need to get a rough estimate of who would like to go or host a stop, and asking for people to think about it and let them know by PM or at the next meeting. In the future, we would like to plan another Booze Cruise to do brewery tours or something similar.

Our club is hosting a BJCP registered homebrew competition (2014 Battaille des Bieres) on February 8th, 2014. Details can be found on forum. Please PM Tatto-mama if you know anyone that you think would like to donate items to raffle off at the competition.
