Excellent Set of Officers Leads the Way to a Stellar 2017 Season!

The Dukes elections provided a solid set of officers/volunteer list, no doubt! So we have: Jeff Jantz- President, Shannon Dyke and Scott Carpenter- VPs, Tim Lambert- Treasurer, Ryan Sarhan- Web Manager, Carolyn Parsey- Facebook Manager, and I’ll do some of the events planning/coordination but we could use another Events Director, to lighten the load. We’ve created a Competition Committee w/o a Competition Director, to lessen the burden on one person. If you want to join, we’d love to have you help! Current members are Jeff Jantz, Scott Carpenter, Kevin Fleming, Shannon Dyke, Marty and Tad Ashlock, and several others not “officially” on the list. I’m being honest in saying for 2017 we have one of the strongest set of officers in the history of the club! Here’s just a few events we’re planning: -“From Wort to Beer, to Spirits” Club beer recipe design to distillation at Broken Trails Distillery. -Explora, “Teaching Brewing Science”. -Mead & Cider Competition with Seminars (April). -Brewery Bicycle Tour. -Belgian & Trappist Ales Seminar, given by Berkeley (From Abbey Brewing), AND MUCH MORE TO COME

December 7th Meeting and Officer Elections

Potluck signup —>here

Hey gang, we’re kicking up the fun-level at the December 7th meeting (@ Broken Trails, 6:30) by having a potluck to go with the featured Irish Whiskey Tapping. Earlier this year we designed a (BIG) Irish Stout, then Broken Trails brewed it, distilled it, and it’s been aging in one of the club’s twice-used oak barrel (Belgian Dark-Strong was last use). I hear it’s awesome!  So bring some food to share, and of course homebrew is always welcome! Also, it’s 2018 officer’s election, so if you’re interested, throw your name in the ring. Also, if you don’t want to be an “official” officer but want to help, or have a talent to share, that’s what keeps a great club running.  Please talk to one of the officers and we’ll put your talents to work (fun!). 2018 is already looking like a fun year, and we’re in the planning stage of having our January meeting at the new Bombs Away Brewery, run by a former Dukes member, and a great brewer.

Hope to see you all December 7th…….and I’ll see if I have any cider to bring 🙂
