Big Brew Day Pictures – 5/6/17
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
